Bengaluru: High Drama prevailed outside an outlet of the Hyderabad-based Karachi Bakery in Bengaluru after a group of unidentified people on Friday, February 22 protested and forced the staff of the bakery to cover half of its signboard and demanded to change its name.

Reportedly, a group of 20 to 25 men gathered in front of the bakery and started chanting slogans and insisted its name be changed. They also forced the staff to cover the word Karachi on the name board. Following the protest the staff covered the word Karachi and displayed the Indian flag at the cafe. 

“The mob stayed for about half an hour. They demanded us to change the name. The men claimed to know people in the Army. They thought we were from Pakistan. But we have been using this name for the last 53 years. The owners are Hindus; only the name is Karachi Bakery. To satisfy them, we put up the Indian flag,” the manager of the Karachi Bakery told The News Minute.

This comes in the backdrop of the February 14 Pulwama terror attack, where over 40 CRPF soldiers were martyred in a suicide bomb blast in Jammu and Kashmir. Ever since then, India has worked diplomatic channels to isolate Pakistan.
