The violence began on Monday after disrespectful Facebook post concerning the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) by a class 11 student- a Hindu began circulating online.
On Thursday afternoon, violence-hit Basirhat virtually turned into a war zone as Hindu mobs clashed with the police and vandalised homes and shops belonging to the minorities, reported Hindustan Times.
