Kota: On the occasion of Eid-Ul-Zuha, several
Muslims in Kishorpura area here wore black bands during namaaz
today in protest against Rajasthan government`s alleged
negligence of issues relating to the minority community.

They wore black strips around their arms, local Muslim
cleric Anwar Ahemad said.

"This was done to show their displeasure over the
government`s apathy towards issues pertaining to minorities,
which was evident in the way the recent violence in Gopalgarh
was handled," he said.
