India: Muslim vendors excluded from doing business in temple fair

Muslim traders have been allegedly debarred from installing their business units at a temple fair in Mangaluru city of Dakshina Kannada district in Karnataka.

Muslim vendors say they were instructed to obtain stalls in the names of Hindus so that they can conduct their business.

Meanwhile, the Street Vendors Association has expressed discontent over the situation and has asked the government and district administration to look into the matter.

The vendors association has also argued that these religious fairs are a means for poor Muslim traders to earn their livelihood.
