Locals of the district claim that few Muslim families residing in the village have been objecting the Durga Puja Celebration. A villager said, “This is happening for the fourth time in a row. The district administration fears that the 25 Muslim families residing in the village might get angered and bring the situations to a boil, hence they are denying us the permission to hold the Puja”.

A senior police officer said, “The village has a history of several communal tensions. The only reason why the permission is being denied to hold the Durga Puja is to maintain the law and order and prevent any incidents of communal flare up.”

Locals have moved to High court demanding the rights to celebrate their festival. A hearing has been scheduled for Monday.
