A few days ago, BJP MP Muniswamy S had promised to remove the Islamic flag from the Clock Tower and hoist the national flag there. After the Indian Tricolour was hoisted, Muniswamy tweeted that after 74 years of waiting, the flag of a particular Community was removed and the national flag has been hoisted there.
The clock tower was built in 1930 by Mustafa, a trader.
