Bhopal: A Muslim youth was brutally beaten up and stabbed several times by Hindutva goons in Madhya Pradesh State in India.
The goons of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal brutally beaten up and stabbed several times the Muslim youth, Mohammad Wahid, in Khandwa city in the Nimar region of the State on Thursday.
The attack is part of the recent systematic hate crimes against Muslims in the poll-bound State.
A viral video of the incident shows the Hindutva goons thrashing the hapless Muslim youth with a pipe and then stabbing him multiple times, leaving him critically injured. A video of the victim, Mohammad Wahid, undergoing treatment in a hospital, is being widely shared on social media.
In the video, doctors can be seen trying to control the blood flow as Wahid groans in pain.
Such incidents of hate crime, promoted by the BJP government in India, have become a regular occurrence in the State.
Recently, during a programme organised in the State capital Bhopal, members of Hindutva organisations called to change the names of the area with Muslim connotations. Asserting that the Muslims have taken over 80 per cent of the employment in the country and that they are thriving under government protection, the ‘Dharm Raksha’ leaders asked their followers to take the matter into their own hands, instead of relying on the government, media reports said.
A month ago, a female Muslim doctor was molested and thrashed by a Hindutva group of men in Ujjain. The physiotherapist was returning home on her two-wheeler when the incident happened.
