Muslims were celebrating Republic day on the 26th of January when a group of ABVP goons entered that area raising provocative slogans against Muslims. They compelled Muslim to hoist saffron flag instead of India national flag. This led to a commotion between Muslims and the group, following which large number of people joined the group with deadly weapons including firearms and swords, and unleashed attack on the Muslims. 2 persons were severely injured in this incident and the violence continued till next day. They also looted Muslim shops and set them on fire. The Police not only failed to control the mob but also arrested many Muslim men. The injured Muslims one Naushad and Akram were admitted in Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College. Section 144 has been invoked and outsiders are restricted from entering Kishaganj.
