Shia Muslim group protests against TV channel over tweet

Members of a Shia Muslim group Anjuman-e-Imamia along with other minority communities staged a protest in front of the office of national television channel India Today/Aajtak on Richmond road on Friday.

The protest was against a controversial tweet by a journalist tweeting about the wife and daughter of Prophet Mohammed and the mother of Jesus Christ .

The protestors shouted slogans against the journalist and the TV channel for broadcasting 'blasphemous' tweets on social media.

The protests took a violent turn when a few of the agitators vandalized the office. They smashed the glass doors of the office. Traffic movement on busy Richmond Road was disrupted for a while. The police, however, rushed to the spot and brought the situation under control. Ashok Nagar police have deployed additional police personnel to maintain law and order.

Earlier the protestors had silently marched from Masjid-e-Askari to the TV office shouting slogans.
