In a shocking incident of jungle raj, which will indict Manohar Lal Khattar government, militants posing as gau rakshaks recently forced two Muslims to eat a concoction of cow dung, cow urine, milk, curd and ghee.
A video of two Muslims, Rizwan and Mukhtar, were mercilessly thrashed before being made to eat “panchgavya” (cow dung concoction). The 57-seconds video shows the victims sitting on a highway and eating cowdung. Their swollen faces are signs of merciless thrashing by Hindutva goons.
According to an Indian Express report, Dharmendra Yadav, president of the Gurgaon Gau Rakshak Dal, said his ‘goons’, acting on a tip-off, intercepted a vehicle transporting “700 kg of beef from Mewat to Delhi” on the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway.
“We had to chase the car for 7 km before we finally managed to stop them near the Badarpur border,” Yadav said. He has no idea who shot the video.
“When we caught them, they had 700 kg of beef in their car. We made them eat the panchgavya to teach them a lesson, and also to purify them,” Yadav said.
The militants can also be heard shouting “hurry up” and “finish the gobar quickly.” In terms of assistance the right-wing thugs only offer more water. They can also be heard prompting them to say “Gau Mata Ki Jai” and “Jai Shri Ram”, both of which the duo say as they struggle to swallow the mixture.
Faridabad police PRO Sube Singh said, “Police have no information about any video of persons being forced to eat cow dung. We do not know where this happened, who are involved. This did not happen in police presence… If this video is genuine, this calls for a case.”
Sube Singh said: “It was on June 10 that Gau Raksha Dal members caught two persons, Rizwan and Mukhtiar, with 300 kg beef being carried in an Accent car bearing a Delhi registration number in the area under Sector 37 police station, Faridabad. The vehicle was coming from Ballabhgarh and going towards Delhi.”
Questions may be asked on the cops’ biases because, while they were swift in arresting the victims, the perpetrators of the crime were flaunting their acts before the media.
The safety of minority under the BJP government in Haryana has become a big concern with attacks against them becoming regular phenomenan. In most cases, the victims allege that the police’s role has been questionable.
Last year Muslims from Atali village in Ballabhgarh had their houses burnt and property destroyed by right-wing Hindutva workers after they began construction of a mosque in the village with the High Court’s order.
They alleged that the police remained mute spectators as Muslims were forced to spent weeks away from their properties in side makeshift camp of a police station in Ballabhgarh.
