    Mumbai: protests against anti-Ambedkar FB page

    Mumbai: Angry Dalits took to streets in Mumbai's Khar area on Monday night to protest against an anti-Ambedkar page on the social networking website Facebook.

    Police and Rapid Action Force personnel rushed in as the protest went out of a control. Mobs burnt tyres and even damaged passing cars. As a result, all connecting roads were jammed for almost four hours and police cordoned off the area as a precaution.

    No one was arrested. Meanwhile hundreds of protesters gathered at the Khar police station demanding action against those behind the Facebook page.

    Protesters said that it is insulting Baba Ambedkar and if the police doesn't take action then they will stall the state.

    One of the protesters also said that if by 10 am on Tuesday they don't get the verdict, they will not only block roads, but also shut down the state.
