Attack by Hindu extremists, Mumbai’s famous ‘Karachi Bakery’ closed
Karachi Bakery, the most famous bakery in Mumbai, India, has been closed.
According to Indian media reports, the Karachi bakery was attacked by the Hindu extremist Raj Thackeray’s party Maharashtra Norman Sena, after which the owners announced the closure of the shop.
The Hindu extremist party says it is responsible for closing the Karachi bakery.
According to media reports, the Karachi bakery has been closed due to its name and Haji Saif Sheikh, a leader of the Hindu extremist party, confirmed the closure through a tweet.
Haji Saif, in his tweet, tagged Raj Thackeray and said that the only shop in Mumbai was closed due to the name of Karachi Bakery.
Karachi Bakery is one of the oldest and most famous bakeries in India run by a Hindu family migrating from Sindh.
Last year, the Hindu extremist party sent a legal notice to the bakery owners stating that the word “Karachi” in the name of the bakery hurts the feelings of Indian citizens and the military because it is a city in Pakistan.
In addition, the leader of the Hindu extremist party had protested outside the bakery to change its name, while the Hindu extremist party Shiv Sena had also demanded the renaming of the bakery.
