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.

Life of seventy members of a Muslim family was saved by their Hindu neighbours in the village on the same day when Mohammed Akhlaq was killed by a mob.

According to a Hindi daily, "When the mob turned violent and was heading towards the Muslim families, the Hindu family members not only saved them, but also guarded their homes later."

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.
