A campaign run by a traders’ body in Dharchula, Uttarakhand, urging locals not to rent their malgis, and houses, to “outsiders,” particularly Muslim shopkeepers, has led to a tense situation in the town.

They are being accused of settling in the town since Uttarakhand was created in 2000.

The traders body has canceled the registrations of 91 shops over the past 40 days, with around 85 of these shopkeepers being from the Muslim community, reported The Hindu. The campaign is causing tension in the area and has led to the cancellation of shop registrations for Muslim-owned businesses.
