Shaken by the beef lynching episode, the troubled Bishada village in the district is agog with activity on Sunday, with Hindus joining their Muslim brethren in making preparations for the wedding of two girls belonging to the minority community.
Bishada resident Hakeem, who till a few days ago was toying with the idea of shifting the wedding venue outside the village in the wake of the beef rumours that saw a man being brutally beaten to death, is now all smiles as villagers have ensured security for the family celebrating the marriage on Sunday. However, after Hindu families extended support he decided against doing so. The village is all set to welcome the bridegroom and their families and is busy making preparations for food and tent.
A 50-year-old man, Iqlakh, was beaten to death and his 22-year-old son Danish was critically injured by a mob, which barged into their house on the night of September 28 following rumours that the family had consumed beef.
