This triangular snack is quite famous in the region and people have it with meat inside or vegetable inside. The ban means that if anyone is caught making or eating Samosa would be heavily penalised and punished. Although strange but the militant group banned this snack because they thought that the triangular shape was not compatible with their strict version of Islam.
The triangle shape denotes the sign of the Christian Holy Trinity. Samosas first originated in Central Asia, and it was bought to India by traders, who used to have this snack while sitting around the bonfire. After that this snack travelled to other parts of the world along with Muslim travellers.
This ban however, is no surprise for the people, as earlier this year, blankets, playing or watching football was also banned by the same group. They have also warned that anyone wearing tight-fitting clothes would also be punished.
