Three Muslim students in India assaulted for not chanting ‘Jai Mata Ki’

NEW DELHI: Extremist Hindus subjected three Muslim students to assault for not chanting a pro-India slogan, ARY News reported.

According to details, three Muslim students from a madressah in New Delhi’s surrounding Begampur area were beaten up by members of a Hindu extremist group for not chanting the ‘Jai Mata Ki’ slogan. One of the students was assaulted so severely that his arm broke.

“We had gone to a park nearby. Some men came and slapped one of my friends, asked him to say ‘Jai Mata Ki’ and they said they would kill us if we don’t say it. But we didn’t say,” said one of the students.

The students said that they were being forced to chant the slogan and upon refusal to do so, they were beaten up by the radical Hindus. Police stated that three individuals in connection with the incident had been arrested while an investigation had begun. In India, the atrocities being committed against minorities, particular Muslims, have been on the rise ever since Prime Minister Narendra Singh Modi took over the reins of the country.

In recent months, Bollywood superstars such as Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan have also been openly threatened and criticised by members and activists of the conservative BJP in India. The Dadri lynching case was an eye-opener in which a Muslim man was lynched by an angry mob which had heard rumours that him and his family had consumed beef.
