The Hindus have been identified as Saurabh Lambardar, Raghav Mittal, Kanha and Krishna Thakur. All of them are residents of the Govardhan area. “We have done nothing wrong….if they (Muslims) can offer namaz in a temple, then we can also recite devotional hymns in a mosque,” one of them said. The events followed after one Faizal Khan had been arrested by the Police for offering Namaz within the premises of Nandmahal temple in Nandgaon area in Mathura district’s Barsana on Saturday.

A complaint was filed after a photo of the duo, reciting Islamic prayers within a Hindu temple, went viral on social media.
