Muslim Man Beaten Up By Cow Terrorists In Rajasthan’s Alwar
Two years after dairy farmer Pehlu Khan was lynched to death by a terrorist mob in Alwar district of Rajasthan, another Muslim man Munfed Khan was brutally beaten by a mob in the Shahjahanpur area of the same district on Monday.
Munfed was travelling with 7 cows in a vehicle when he was caught by a mob at Phusa-Ki-Dhani area of Shahjahanpur area. Police claimed there were allegations that he was smuggling the animals in two vehicles, and was caught by some villagers at Phusa-Ki-Dhani after the vehicles tried to get past some barricades that Shahjahanpur Police had set up.
Munfed was rescued from the crowd by the police, who then admitted him with multiple fractures at the government hospital in Shahjahanpur. His condition is reportedly critical. The People’s Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL) said that this was a case of “attempted mob lynching”, in which the victim picked up by the cow vigilantes was criminalised and beaten up.…
