An outlet of the famous bakery and confectionery chain Karachi Bakery in Bengaluru had to cover the ‘Karachi’ in its name after some people protested over the name of the Bakery as Karachi is the name of a city in Pakistan. There is a feeling of anger in people’s minds against Pakistan after a dastardly terrorist attack on the CRPF convoy in Pulwama claimed the lives of more than 40 CRPF personnel.

Some people gathered outside the Bakery outlet in Bengaluru’s Indiranagar on Friday evening and demanded the owners to cover the Karachi part of the name. The owners of the Bakery covered the Karachi part on the signboard hung outside the bakery outlet. No damage and violence was reported following the protests.

It is reported that the outlet was receiving calls regarding the ‘Karachi’ word in its name. The owner of the chain is a Sindhi migrant from Karachi named Khanchand Ramnani who had come from Pakistan after the partition and had settled in Hyderabad. The first Karachi bakery store was opened in Hyderabad’s Mozamjahi market in 1953. Since then the franchise has been expanded to several cities in South India and enjoys wide popularity for its trademark products.

“The mob stayed for about half an hour. They demanded us to change the name. The men claimed to know people in the army. They thought we are from Pakistan. But we have been using this name for the last 53 years. The owners are Hindus, only the name is Karachi bakery. To satisfy them, we put up the Indian flag”, said the Manager of the bakery.

The police have confirmed that they received a distress call from the bakery however no damage of property was reported. The protestors were under the impression that the Bakery was of Pakistani origin, which is false.
