Did a town in UP celebrate Hafeez Saeed's release?

Allahabad, Nov 25 (IBNS): Tense scenes prevailed in Uttar Pradesh's Lakhimpur city on Friday morning, where green flags were allegedly raised along with slogans like "Hafeez Saeed Zindabad" and "Pakistan Zindabad", celebrating the release of the Mumbai terror attack mastermind, reports said.

The alleged incident took place in Begum Bagh colony in Shivpuri area, where houses were decorated with green flags.  

To counter any untoward incident, a large number of policemen were also deployed in the area.

District Magistrate Akashdeep told the Times of India, "I have asked police to investigate the matter and ensure peace in the city."

A police officer said that a large number of right wing members had already gathered in the area when they reached the spot.

Kotwali police station in-charge Pradeep Shukla said, "We rushed to the colony and found green flags put up in some houses. We removed all those flags and assured members of right wing outfits that the matter will be thoroughly investigated."

However, a Lakhimpur based imam said that the green flags were put up as the community was celebrating Juloos-e-Mohammdi.

"I am not aware if someone raised anti-national slogans. As far as green flags are concerned, many people started celebrating Juloos-e-Mohammdi, which is on December 2, from Friday. It had nothing to do with Hafiz Saeed or Pakistan," the imam said.
