Mob forces ‘Karachi Bakery’ in India to cover up ‘Karachi’ on signboard


As violence against Kashmiris continues unabated in India in the aftermath of the Pulwama tragedy, a charged mob in Bengaluru gathered outside an outlet of ‘Karachi Bakery’ and forced it to cover up the ‘Karachi’ part in its signboard.

The mob thought that the bakery located in Indrinagar, Bengaluru, was owned by a Pakistani company and demanded that the Karachi part on the signboard be covered.

Indian journalist Nagarjun Dwarakanath tweeted pictures of the protest and wrote: Protesters thronged Karachi Bakery in Indiranagar, Bangalore and demanded that Karachi part on sign board must be covered because of Pulwama attack. Protesters thought bakery was owned by a Pakistani company.

Bengaluru police confirmed they received a distress call from the bakery late Friday night.
