Shopkeepers teach Christians a lesson in Punjab

published on February 26, 2010

Amritsar: Irate shopkeepers in Majitha town in Punjab set on fire 25 motorcycles of Christians who vandalised their business establishments during their protest.

Police said a group of about 50 people from the Christian community were forcing shopkeepers in the town, about 20km from here, to pull down their shutters while they were protesting against an allegedly objectionable picture of Jesus Christ published in some newspapers.

When the protesters started vandalising the shops and smashing the shutters and glow signs, local residents and shopkeepers assembled and attacked them.

Seeing people assembling in large numbers, the agitating men fled the spot leaving behind their motorbikes. The shopkeepers and residents then set afire 25 of the vehicles.
