Tension grips Jammu town over alleged desecration of Quran


Jammu: Tension gripped the hilly Bhaderwah town in Jammu region on Friday over allegations that miscreants desecrated the Quran.

Shops, public transport, businesses and educational institutions remained closed in the town of Kishtwar district after Muslims alleged that during Thursday’s Dussehra celebrations in the town, miscreants burnt some pages of the Quran.

On Friday, Muslim youth took to the streets, burnt tyres and blocked traffic on the roads.

Bhaderwah has nearly as many Muslims as Hindus.

Authorities said the situation is under control and the veracity of the allegation was being probed.
