Mumbai's iconic Karachi Bakery has pulled down its shutters, months after it was targeted by the MNS.
In November 2020, MNS leader Haji Saif Shaikh had sent a legal notice to the owner of the bakery saying the word "Karachi" hurt sentiments of ordinary Indians and must be removed. In a tweet earlier this week, the MNS sought to claim credit for Karachi Bakery closing down.
But according to reports, sales at Karachi bakery were hit hard by the pandemic, prompting the move by owners.
Netizens, especially Mumbaikars, posted their memories of the iconic eatery, mourning the end of an era.
Karachi Bakery, one of India's oldest and most popular cookie-makers, is a Hyderabad-based chain run by a Sindhi Hindu migrant family, the Ramnanis, who moved to India from Karachi.
