According to a resident of Francis Colony, a group from a close by village stormed at the shops, houses and vehicles in the Christian colony. We saw a police mobile of the area’s check post parked in the vicinity but they did not intervene and let the mob damage our property,” says Pervez.

Our boys were passing the mosque when the prayer leader objected to their playing music on cell phones. The boys turned off the music at that moment but switched it on again after covering some distance. The cleric raised a clamor and accused the boys of showing disrespect to Islam. As word spread of the incident, we immediately went to the police post in our colony and shared our security concerns with them. The police told us not to worry and assured us that they would contain the situation but no measures were taken,” he continued.
