An entire neighbourhood in Uttar Pradesh's Moradabad has threatened exodus after two properties were sold to two Muslim families. "Why do they forcefully want to come live here and spoil the atmosphere," said Gaurav Kohli, a resident. They gather at the Shiv Mandir every day as saving the temple is part of their protests. Meanwhile, the District Magistrate investigating the problem claimed a property matter to be the issue.
