After the Uri attack many people are demanding GOI to take stringent action against Pakistan. Social media, newspapers are being flooded with letters condemning the cowardly act of Pakistani terrorists and demanding to declare Pakistan a Terror state.
Following these incidents, the association of Muslim traders in Vadodara, Gujarat has unanimously boycotted all Made In Pakistan goods which mostly include heena, spices and perfumes.
The Muslim association also took out protest march demanding people to boycott Pakistani goods and requested other trade union to support the cause. The overall sentiment against Pakistan is growing each day with many organisations demanding government to declare Pakistan a Terror state and cut off all trade, economic, diplomatic relationship with the neighbouring country.
Muslim families in India have a tradition of using many spices, perfumes, maskara, gutkha, soaps and clothes which are made in Pakistan. These clothes are especially sold more during festival seasons. But the Muslim trade Association has said that they will neither buy nor sell anything that is made in Pakistan. There are around 150 small and medium traders who have all decided to boycott the Pakistani made products.
Imtiaz Attarwala, who runs a perfume shop in Mandvi area said “We have decided to stop selling various Pakistan made products to mark our protest. Thus, we will make Pakistan weaker economically”.
He has also urged the Government of India to ban all products from Pakistan and insisted people to participate more and said this is a small effort from common people to isolate Pakistan which is sponsoring terrorism.
