A group of activists belong to Sri Rama Sene harassed a Muslim family having a picnic close to a temple in Karnataka's Udupi, asking them to vacate the premises.

According to the members belonging to the right-wing Hindu group, the family was ruining sanctity of the temple by cooking fish.

The Muslim family had reportedly travelled to the banks of river Seethanadi from Manglore for a day out.

A video of the exchange captured one of the men shouting, "What is wrong with you? Will you keep quiet if somebody cuts open a pig in front of a mosque? You eat what you want to eat. We have no problem. But, why are you doing it in front of the temple?"

He added, "Why do you do this? It is June and you have already started all this."

No incidence of violence was reported after the family apologised to the men, and left the river bank following the accusation.

"We didn't realise. I thought the temple was far away," a man belonging to the family was heard saying on the video. To which, the Sri Ram Sene member responded, "How can you not realise? There is a shrine there. It is common sense. Yet you cook meat here."
