Muslim body to observe black day protesting insult to Koran
February 15, 2006 11:43 IST
Indian Union Muslim League will observe 'black day' on February 17 in protest against the selling of ferry tickets having Arabic inscription on the reverse side.
An IUML release said here that they would organise peaceful demonstrations across the state "against the sinister ploy of mischievous elements trying to cause disrepute to Islam."
Tension brewed in the Shibpur-Kajipara area under Shibpur police station on Tuesday when some of the daily commuters alleged that the Arabic inscriptions were part of the Koran.
