According to reports, no prior permission was taken from the SDO by the protestors before organising the protest gathering and then taking out the procession. The Hindu reported that three Muslim boys were thrashed and forced to chant the slogan of ‘Jai Shri Ram’ by a group of people in the airport area. A complaint this has been lodged at Doranda police station.

MMM convenor Maulana Obedulla Kasmi said that their protest was not targeted at a particular caste or religion and actually it was against those elements who are trying to spread hatred through crime like mob lynchings. The Muslim organisations have prepared a charter of seven demands too present before the government.
