Muslim family boycotted for refusal to donate land for graveyard in UP

Talking to The Indian Express, Israr said, "About two months ago, the panchayat was held and I was summoned again to finally decide if I would donate my one bigha land for the graveyard or not. As I refused, the panchayat members unanimously ordered for the social boycott of my family. The panchayat directed that no villager will visit or talk to my family and will also not purchase vegetable from my shop."

The local fair price shop owner also refused to give grains and other commodities to him or his family, saidIsrar.

Unable to cope up with the situation, Israr dispatched complaints to the police and the administration through post last week. Since he did not get any response, Israr along with his family, left the village Wednesday. He says a group of locals plan to kill him for lodging the complaints.
