It is a food kiosk, which serves delicious chicken. A single bulb hangs from Anjal Singh’s food cart as rows of kebabs sizzle on his skewer.
The stall is a roadside blue wagon, with a price list and a single plastic chair. But what screams you on the face is the colourful advertisment which says, say out loud: “Pakistan Murdabad.” and the reward you get is a Rs 10 discount per chicken leg.
To eat at Anjal Singh’s stall, you need to travel to the city of Jagdalpur, located in southern Chhattisgarh’s Bastar district, not far from the Odisha border.
“Pakistan never valued humanity, never will.”
– Anjal Singh, food stall owner
There is widespread anguish in India after 40 CRPF paramilitary soldiers were killed in a suicide bombing carried out last week in Pulwama. The attack was carried out by the Pakistan-based terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed. India has since killed the mastermind of the bombing. Meanwhile, Pakistan has completely denied responsibility for the attack in Pulwama.
Anjal Singh, the food stall owner, doesn’t mince words when he describes his views about Pakistan.
In an interview with ANI, he said Pakistan “never valued humanity”, and that it never would. And that, he added, is why everyone should say “Pakistan Murdabad” from “their hearts”.
Last week, Chhattigsarh’s lawmakers condemned the attack in Pulwama and paid homage to the CRPF martyrs. “The sacrifice of the martyred CRPF personnel will be remembered for ever,” Speaker Charandas Mahant said.
