A mob in India targeted  "Karachi Bakery" in    Bangalore  thinking it was owned by a Pakistani company in a latest incident of  vandalism  that ensued after Pulwama attack. 

Nargarjun Dwarakanath, a journalist associated with India Today TV , posted the picture of the shop and wrote: "Protesters thronged KARACHI bakery in Indiranagar, Bangalore and demanded that Karachi part on sign board must be covered because of Pulwama attack. Protesters THOUGHT BAKERY WAS OWNED BY A PAKISTAN COMPANY.

Nistula Hebber,Political Editor of widely circulated English daily The Hindu, retweeted the post saying  protesters have gone crazy without realizing that they are attacking their own people.

A section of Indian media has been fanning anti-Pakistan and Kashmir  sentiments  after the attack.

The propaganda has led to mob violence which saw many Kashmiris assailed at the hands of extremist elements.

Pakistan has urged India to ensure the security of Pakistanis and Kashmiris .
