BHOPAL, Aug 26 : Tension erupted in Madhya Pradesh’s Narsinghpur district on Thursday after a “Pakistani flag” was found hoisted atop a Hanuman temple, prompting authorities to prohibit gathering of more than four people in the district headquarters.
A case has been registered against unidentified persons for hurting religious sentiments, police said on Friday.
Police also prohibited sharing of “communally sensitive” contents on social medial platforms.
Locals saw the flag when they went to the Panchmukhi Hanuman temple on the outskirts of Narsinghpur town, some 190kms from the state capital Bhopal, in the morning.
Several right-wing Hindu organisations took out protest marches in the town to protest the incident and demanded immediate action against the perpetrators.
