Tension prevailed in Nasirpur village in Mau after two motorcycle-borne men allegedly threw pieces of meat that appeared to be pork outside a mosque and opened fire at one person who was coming out after offering prayers.

The incident occurred last night. 70-year-old Yunus, who was coming out after offering namaz, suffered injuries after the two men opened fire on him, the SP said. The injured person has been admitted to the district hospital, he said.

    This is the usual style of RSS to create disharmony between communities since independence. These Bhakts relish Cow meat when they are in Gulf countries and remember it as Mata when in India.
