Jammu: In a major development, tension gripped a village in Jammu region’s Poonch district on Monday over use of loudspeakers in a Hindu temple.
Reportedly, members of the majority Muslim community objected to the use of loudspeakers in a Hindu temple situated in Poonch’s Jhulas village.
What happened actually?
Police said youth led by a local woman tried to intervene physically to prevent the use of the loudspeaker by temple management.
However, their entry was resisted after which the members of the two communities started sloganeering against each other. This led to tension in the village. Attempts are underway to defuse the tension.
