The Bajrang Dal activists pulled down a banner announcing “Pakistani food festival” from a restaurant in Gujarat’s Surat on Monday. They tore down and burned the banner while chanting slogans such as “Jai Shri Ram” and “Har Har Mahadev”.
News agency ANI reported that restaurant, Taste of India, was organising a 10-day food festival between December 12 and December 22. The banner had been put up to promote the food festival.
The banner was put up near old sub-jail on the Ring Road in Surat. As the photograph of the banner circulated on social media, it drew objection from the Bajrang Dal members. They reached the spot, took it down and set the banner on fire.
