Heavy shelling and stone pelting has been reported at Gujjar mandi Rajouri amid communal tensions.
It was reported recently that members of a certain community had waved the ISIS flags in Rajouri and as a reaction to that members of VHP and Bajrang Dal had burned the ISIS flags terming the act of waving ISIS flags as anti-national and disrespectful to the Indian nationality.
The members who waved the ISIS flags protested the burning of ISIS flags by the other members and wanted their arrest, a demand which was swiftly rejected. Their complain was, the writing on the made-up ISIS paper flags by VHP and Bajrang Dal was holy and the burning of these flags was a gross mistake. The Muslim leaders clarified that they have no ill against the burning of the ISIS flags but simply writing Holy symbols on a black piece of paper to burn it down was not acceptable.
As a result, the situation in Rajouri has now become sensitive communally. The administration has imposed a curfew to prevent any unbecoming event from happening.
