This is the second incident in Bengaluru where a bakery has become a target of mobs. However, unlike Karachi Bakery, the owner of this bakery in Madiwala had expressed his support to Pakistani Army
Bengaluru: An angry mob on Saturday, vandalised Plaza Bakery in Madiwala after the caretaker of the bakery, Abdul Saleem, posted a picture on Facebook stating "I stand by Pakistan Army" which angered the residents of Madiwala. The bakery belongs to Muneer, Abdul Saleem's brother who was arrested in Kerala on Sunday.
On Saturday afternoon, a massive crowd reached the Plaza bakery in Madiwala and began to vandalise the shop. After the incident came to light, the Madiwala police filed a suo motu case against the two and booked them for sedition. The owner of the building has also filed a case against the mob who vandalised the shop.
Despite the complaint, there have been no arrests of any person who was part the mob which vandalised the bakery.
The bakery owner, Muneer, hailed from Kerala and setup the bakery in Madiwala a few years ago. Muneer returned to Kerala, while Abdul Saleem managed its day-to-day operations.
According to reports, the bakery has been shut down and will most likely be permanently closed after this incident.
Similarly, a mob forced bakery to cover the signboard of Karachi Bakery in Bengaluru's Indiranagar claiming the word "Karachi" indicated that the bakery belonged to Pakistan. This incident took place after more than 40 CRPF soldiers were killed in a terror attack in Kashmir's Pulwama district carried out by Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed.
