A wall of a mosque was vandalised in Uttar Pradesh's Aligarh, with religious slogans written on it. The incident was caught on camera and went viral on social media.

The incident took place at the Delhi Gate intersection in Aligarh, where religious slogans were written on the walls of a mosque on Saturday, December 24.

Following this, a delegation from the Samajwadi Party (SP) met Superintendent of Police (City) Mrigank Shekhar Pathak and submitted a formal complaint regarding the matter, urging strong action against the miscreants responsible for disturbing communal peace.
