Hundreds of Muslims here on Friday burnt an effigy of Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif condemning the attack on the Uri Army base on September 18.
The protesters gathered at Husani chowk after Friday namaz at Jama Masjid and marched to Rajwara chowk shouting slogans like ‘Hindustan Zindabad’ and “Pakistan Murdabad”.
They burnt the effigies there. They said the effigy also represented terrorists.
“We burnt an effigy symbolising Sharif and terrorists,” said Maulana Shan-a-Alam of the Jama Masjid.
Addressing the community, he said Indian Muslims will give befitting reply if Pakistan tried to attack the country.
Maulana Khurshid Alam, another cleric, said Indian Muslims would never betray the country.
In his speech at the United Nations General Assembly, Pakisan prime minister Sharif had described the slain Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani as a “Young leader”, whereas he was nothing but a terrorist, he said.
