Hate posters against Muslims found outside mosques

Anti-Muslim posters surfaced in two villages of Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly district over the past week, prompting a police investigation against suspected hate-mongers trying to provoke communal tension. The posters ask Muslims to stop using loudspeakers for the azaan and to leave the village by the year-end. Kargaina is a thickly populated village on the Bareilly-Badaun highway. Of its population of 9,000, around 3,000 are Muslims, who mostly live on one side of the village. “The poster says ‘sarkar hamari aa gayi hai, sudhar jao (mend your ways, our government is in power)’ and was signed ‘gaon ke sabhi Hindu (Hindus of the village)’,” said Taqi Ahmed, a mosque caretaker.
