Eid is being celebrated with great pomp across the country today. The incident of stone pelting from Jodhpur, Rajasthan, is coming out before Eid. The Internet service in this area has been suspended following the incident of stone-pelting.
In Jodhpur, before Eid on Monday evening, there was a dispute regarding hoisting the flag at the Jalauri Gate. Both communities clashed afterward. Police have protected Eid prayers in Jodhpur after the internet was shut down there.
In addition, there is a three-day-long festival called Parshuram Jayanti taking place in Jodhpur, in which both communities raised religious flags. This dispute turned into a conflict as a result.
