Dadri, Oct 3: Despite communal tensions in the Bisara village of Uttar Pradesh where a man was lynched over the rumours of beef consumption, here is the example of religious harmony set by a Hindu family in the region.
The killing of Akhlaq following rumours that his family consumed beef was part of a bigger conspiracy with two right-wing organisations operating in the area to spread communal disharmony, his widow said on Friday.
A mob beat to death 50-year-old Akhlaq and critically injured his 21-year-old son Danish in Bisara village in Greater Noida on Monday night.
Ikram told that while her husband was returning home on Eid, some young boys taunted him as a "Pakistani" and said they would not allow a Pakistani to live in this village and will repeat a Muzaffarnagar style incident, referring to the communal riots in western Uttar Pradesh in September 2013.
