Tension gripped a village in Jammu region’s Poonch district on Monday as members of one community tried to prevent use of loudspeakers by the other community.

Members of the majority Muslim community reportedly objected to the use of loudspeakers in a Hindu temple in Jhulas village.

Police said youth led by a local woman tried to intervene physically to prevent the use of the loudspeaker by temple management, but their entry was resisted after which the members of the two communities started sloganeering against each other in the village.
