Stone pelting common at Hindu festivals in Kheda, Gujarat

Reports said that the Muslim mob accompanying Arif and Zaheer had created a ruckus during the Navratri celebrations. Earlier, it was reported how a Muslim teacher in Kheda had asked students to beat their chests and chant “Ya Hussain” in Muharram-style mourning instead of performing Garba during Navratri celebrations. There were also reports of Muslim men trying to access the Navratri site under fake names. Moreover, the local Muslims in some areas had also opposed the celebration of Navratri.
