    About the comments made on Facebook, Kaif said 'Prophet Sahab is too great to be defended against a FB post'.

    Though the youth, who had made a controversial post on Facebook, was arrested, members of two communities clashed, set up road blockades, damaged shops and set fire to vehicles in Beduria in West Bengal's North 24 Parganas district.

    BJP, Left and Congress leaders were stopped from going to Baduria in North 24 Parganas district as the situation was volatile following communal clashes.

    ''The situation is still tense. We have not allowed any delegation to go there as it might create problems," a senior district official said.
