Though the Hindus are the majority in India, they are often victims of Islamic fanaticism and bigotry.
On Saturday, January 20, Mohammad Abdul Wahid, a teacher at Green Bells School, which is located in Budhar town in the Shahdol district of Madhya Pradesh, brutally assaulted a class 7 student for chanting the slogan “Jai Shri Ram” in the classroom. The incident occurred when there was no teacher in the class.
“Jai Shri Ram” is a famous Hindi slogan that translates to “Victory to Ram.” Ram is one of the most widely worshipped Hindi deities. Before the major Ram Temple inauguration in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, the slogan gained monumental popularity among the younger generation. This student may have been chanting the slogan out of his uncontained excitement, as there were just a couple of days left before the inauguration.
When Mohammad Abdul Wahid heard the “Jai Shri Ram” chants coming from the classroom, he rushed to check who was chanting the religious slogan, and started to beat the student brutally.
The victim, a minor, went home crying and recounted the incident to his family members; locals and members of Hindu organizations were also gradually brought in.
A gathering of people reached the Budhar police station and demanded action against the teacher. The police lodged a case against Mohammad Abdul Wahid and the director of Green Bells School under various relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code, including 34, 153, 323, and 500 and section 82 of the Juvenile Justice Act.
“An incident of assault has come to light wherein a student was beaten for chanting Jai Shri Ram in school. A case has been registered against the accused teacher and school operator. Further investigation in this case is going on,” said police station house officer Sanjeev Jaiswal. The police have since arrested Wahid, but people are demanding that the license of the school be cancelled.
The Ram Janmabhoomi controversy has marked India’s history for over 500 years; recently, it reached the Supreme Court. The Muslim narrative, before the judgment, was that they rejected the claims of the Hindu side and declared that they would go by the decision of the high court. However, they have refused to accept graciously the court’s verdict in favor of the construction of Ram Mandir. Muslim politicians and journalists have been incessantly claiming victimhood and trying to provoke fanatical Muslim individuals and mobs to initiate violence.
On Sunday, January 21, just a day before the grand inauguration of the temple, a Muslim mob in the Mehsana district of Gujarat attacked a Hindu procession dedicated to Lord Ram and the event of the inauguration. The incident occurred in Kheralu town; police sources stated that the stone-throwing began when the procession passed through the Hatadiya area in Belim Vas, which is a Muslim neighborhood. As per reports, members of Hindu organizations observed that the attack started in earnest when the procession reached a mosque. Videos of the mayhem reveal that Muslims, including women, threw stones at the Hindu procession from rooftops. The police have since rounded up 15 individuals and restored peace in the area.
This did not happen only in Gujarat. Muslim mobs, used to the infinite impunity granted to them by the previous “secular” governments, began starting brawls all over the country, with no regard for law and order. X users on Sunday night posted videos of violent rampages similar to the one in Gujarat from Mumbai’s Mira road as well. A popular X handle, The Squind, claimed that a group of 200 Muslims attacked a Hindu procession dedicated to the inauguration and even attacked women. He suggested that it could have been a pre-planned terror attack. Renowned political Abhijit Iyer Mitra confirmed that rioting had started. Asianet News reports that rioters attacked the vehicles of a Hindu procession with stones and hammers, injuring several Ram devotees.
Again, on January 21, the Bihar Police arrested a 21-year-old Muslim youth, Intekhab Alam, for threatening to “blow up” the Ram Mandir on January 22. Thousands of VVIPs and devotees of Ram were scheduled to attend the ceremony.
Ashok Kumar Singh, Superintendent of Police, Araria, also confirmed this: “The man had on January 19 dialled 112, the number on which citizens can seek emergency help. He claimed his name was Chhota Shakeel and that he was a close aide of Dawood Ibrahim.” Bihar police have detained Alam and seized his phone registered in his father’s name.
Meanwhile, there have been numerous reports over the last few years of a “Muslim being beaten or harassed and forced to chant Jai Shri Ram” in India. All these stories were covered widely by the media, only to be proven fake. They were intended to malign the Hindu community and the Narendra Modi government in India. The reality couldn’t be farther from these cooked-up narratives.
