Recent incidents in BJP-ruled Uttar Pradesh have highlighted a disturbing pattern of violence against Muslims. Three Muslims, including a woman, were brutally assaulted by Hindutva forces.

One incident involved a Muslim named Nazim, who was stripped and beaten by a Hindutva mob while talking to a Hindu woman in the Quarsi area. A video of the incident went viral, showing Nazim being interrogated by the mob.

In another case, a minor Muslim boy was attacked at Malkhan Singh District Hospital in the Banndevi area. The attackers asked his name and then beat him on the hospital roof. A video of this incident also surfaced online, showing the boy crying for help while being beaten. The boy did not initially tell his family, as the attackers had threatened to kill him if he spoke.

Additionally, in Meerut district, a Hindutva man named Vishal Thakur assaulted and molested a burqa-clad woman. The assault was caught on CCTV, and Thakur was arrested after the footage went viral on social media.

Meanwhile, in Cooch Behar, West Bengal, a Muslim woman faced a brutal assault, sparking widespread condemnation and safety concerns. The video of this incident also went viral, raising questions about women’s security in the region.

These incidents highlight the increasing violence and discrimination faced by Muslims in India. The viral videos have sparked outrage and raised concerns about the safety and security of minority communities.

The international community watches closely as these developments unfold. It is imperative for authorities to take immediate and decisive action to protect vulnerable populations and ensure justice for the victims. Addressing the causes of such violence and promoting communal harmony are essential for long-term peace and stability in the region.
