On Saturday, 12 November 2022, disturbing video of a Hindu student being attacked and traumatized by senior Muslim students in India went viral on all social media platforms. The video was from ICFAI Foundation for Higher Education (IFHE) in Hyderabad, India; the Hindu student was identified as Himank Bansal. He was surrounded by Muslim students who had held him captive in a hostel room and were seen hitting him and forcing him to chant the Islamic slogan “Allahu akbar.” These Muslims were heard stating, “we’ll fix his ideology… beat him to coma,” and also asked about the whereabouts of his family. One can conclude that these students were not content with assaulting the Hindu boy, but fully intended to extend the violence to his family.
Following the assault, Bansal complained to the police, detailing the circumstances leading up to the attack, and the case is under investigation. As per the police complaint, Himank was hit on his kidney, liver, and testicles. However, anyone who is aware of Hyderabad’s political dynamics knows that there will hardly be any action against the perpetrators, let alone any exemplary punishment.
India Today’s Muslim journalist Abdul Basheer reported on this incident with the headline, “Hyderabad Student beaten by Hostel mates for insulting Prophet Muhammad.” He masterfully concealed the fact that a lone Hindu boy was terrorized by a gang of Muslims, and tried to give the incident a fake narrative that encouraged the Muslim agenda. With this reporting style, the “journalist” further reinforced the proposition that a Muslim will be a Muslim first and a doctor, lawyer, actor, or as in this case, a journalist only secondarily. The Hyderabad incident and its media treatment again prove that no amount of education can free some Muslims from their will to wage jihad.
This is not the first time Muslims attacked a Hindu student. Back in 2020, a Muslim student pursuing at Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) threatened a Hindu student, a girl at that, that he would force her to put on a brass hijab after the lockdown. The threat was made through Instagram. As soon as screenshots of this went viral, Islamic propaganda sites rushed to defend the offender, stating that he had intended to write “peet k” which translates to “by beating you up,” and not “peetal k,” which means “of brass” in Hindi, as if it were acceptable to beat a Hindu female student until she wears the Islamic headgear in that secular country.
During the lockdown, the Muslim university was exposed as the hotbed of jihad preaching and activity. Muslims and Hinduphobes at AMU were brazenly threatening to kill Hindu students and posting intimidating messages on social media. A Hindu PhD scholar named Nikhil filed a complaint with the civil police station against a fellow student for sending death threats to him and his family. The victim also pleaded with the university administration to take action against the perpetrators.
Dr. Nishit Sharma, an AMU alumnus, revealed that “Hindu students have been targeted at the AMU in the past as well. Earlier, they were ragged and tortured; now the Hinduphobes have gone a step ahead to threaten the Hindu students with death. All this is being done at the behest of the higher-ups who along with the AMU Islamists, had spread violence in Aligarh in the name of CAA and NRC. The strings of these people are connected to Delhi.”
As per reports, a Hindu lady working as an Assistant Professor at AMU was also targeted by Muslims on the campus, but due to repeated threats and intimidation, she decided to close her social media accounts. Such incidents demonstrate how Islamic jihadis have poisoned the academic environment.
Highly sensitive to any remarks considered to be against their prophet, these Muslims put up posters containing profanities against Hindu religious symbols and featuring Hindu goddesses wrapped in a hijab. While staying as students for years in government-funded institutions and surviving on tax money, these Muslims carry out all kinds of jihad activities under the façade of activism. Such Muslim “students” chanted Urdu slogans that translated to “a grave of Hindutva will be dug on AMU campus” and “freedom from the Hindus/kaffirs” in chorus during the anti-CAA protests. Accused of communal violence that led to the brutal killings of Hindus during the 2020 Delhi riots, many such Muslims have been put behind bars.
Sharjeel Imam, an engineering graduate pursuing a Ph.D. from Jawaharlal Nehru University, was booked under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act for delivering inflammatory speeches against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC) endorsed by the parliament of India. In a three-minute-long inflammatory speech, Imam incited his audience to cut off the Siliguri corridor, known as “Chicken’s Neck,” from the rest of India. Apart from Imam, JNU student Umar Khalid and Jamia Milia Islamia student Safoora Zargar were also booked for alleged provocative speeches that triggered mass-level violence.
Muslims who are focused on anti-government and anti-Hindu activities have taken over the educational institutions of India. Muslims posing as “students” have exerted their “influence” and caused agitation throughout the country and have become a threat to peace, public life, and property in India.
