People expressed their anger for violation of ceasefire by Pakistan in Behat town of Saharanpur on the occasion of EID. Some Muslim families did not celebrate the festival to mourn the killing of Rifleman Aurangzeb.
Hundreds of people came out on the streets in Behat town of Saharanpur on Saturday after offering the Namaz of Eid and raised anti-Pakistan slogans.
The people here expressed displeasure over violation of ceasefire by Pakistan in the Valley during the holy month of Ramzan. After offering the Namaz at Eidgah, a group of people, including children, came out on the street and shouted ’Pakistan murdabad’ slogans.
Taking their protest to another level, the people also burnt an effigy of Pakistan for violating ceasefire in the Valley during Ramzan.
Some Muslim families in Sarvam locality of adjoining Muzaffarnagar district did not celebrate EID this time. They offered Namaj on Eid in the morning and stayed away from celebrations to mourn the killing of Indian soldier Aurangzeb in the Valley, said a source.
“There is resentment. The ceasefire is normally followed during Ramzan. Also, young soldier Aurangzeb was killed,” said Amir Sikander, who did not hesitate in holding the Union government responsible for the happenings in the Valley.
“The work of Congress in restoring normalcy in past many years in the Valley has all been spoiled by the Modi government,” said Imran Masood , a senior Congress leader in Saharanpur.
