The growing anti-Islam sentiment has targeted a mosque in India’s Bihar state.

This as a saffron flag synonymous with the Hindu faith was hoisted on the top of its gate to the cheers of scores of onlookers.

Three men have since been arrested.

The flag hoisting coincides with the marking of a Hindu religious festival.

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Jayant Kant says that the police were quick enough to pull down the flag from top of the mosque’s gate, bringing the situation under control.

The move comes in the wake of a demand raised by a minister from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to impose a ban on mosque loudspeakers in Bihar.
