According to sources, it is for the first time that such an incident has happened in Chandigarh.

After the news of defacement spread in the city, Congress, Bhartiya Janata Party and Bajrang Dal members reached the area and raised slogans of ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’.

Activists also repainted the wall and wrote ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ in place of ‘Pakistani Block’.

“I am unaware, who wrote this on the wall,” said Islamudin, resident of the house. He added, “Action should be taken against those who are trying to disrupt communal harmony.”

“This is an unfortunate incident and the person responsible will not be spared,” said secretary Chandigarh Pradesh Congress Shashi Shankar Tiwari.
