Muslim men tied, beaten up by Hindu extremists in Maharashtra

Two Muslim men were stripped, tied to a tree, and brutally beaten by around 30-40 members of the Hindu militant group Bajrang Dal over suspicion of cattle slaughter. 

The two victims were beaten with sticks and rods over the back, legs, and head. They were also forced to chant the Hindu religious slogan “Jai Shree Ram,” which is used as a warcry by Hindu supremacists.

One of the victims remains in serious condition due to his injuries. The incident took place in Maharashtra state’s Solapur city on June 29, during the Muslim holiday Eid-al-Adha. 

Hindu extremist monks incite violence against Muslims in Madhya Pradesh

A prominent Hindu extremist and owner of an extremist television network, Suresh Chavhanke, organized an anti-Muslim hate speech event in Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-ruled Madhya Pradesh along with several Hindu extremist monks, to incite violence against Muslims.

In a video of the incident, one monk referred to the Muslim call to prayer as “barking from mosques five times a day,” while a police officer on the sidelines can be seen laughing. 

Another monk called for Muslim men who engage in “love jihad” to be hanged, shot to death in public, or burnt alive. “Love jihad” is a Hindu supremacist conspiracy theory that claims Muslim men have an agenda to seduce Hindu women into converting to Islam. 

Last year, Chavhanke had administered a genocidal oath to a Hindu group in India’s capital, New Delhi, that said, “We take an oath and make a resolution that till our last breath, we shall fight, die for and if need be, kill, to make this country a Hindu Rashtra (nation).”
