Jai Shri Ram

Jai Shri Ram

Religion; To be respected not forced

Beaten and forced to chant the Hindu Phrase ‘ Jai Sri Ram’.

Religion comes on a front foot. Especially in our country. But does this mean we all have the right to force people follow our religion ? Who gives us the right to impose our religion on others or disrespecting any religion.

Above all in a diverse country like India where more than nine types or popularly recognized religions are followed. We all worship the God we believe and having a majority of any religion in a country doesn’t give us any right to degrade others.

Relatives on the incident

“There, a motorcycle theft took place and these people were passing by… so the villagers caught them and then beat him up very badly. There were two friends with him who ran away,” a relative said.

Shams was “beaten up the whole night”. “My elder brother went to see him at the Saraikela police station. But the officers threatened and shooed them away with lathis, saying ‘You have come to talk for the thief’. They threatened to put him in jail as well. We were not allowed to meet him,” He further added.

Shams family was not informed when he was moved to the district hospital. Which somewhere indicates a huge loophole in between.

“We think, he died last night,” the relative said, adding, “We want all the officials at the police station, the jail and all the villagers who beat him up to be charged”.

The doctors of Sadar hospital told, “According to us, he was deeply comatose. We wanted to take an ECG to be sure, But the family wasn’t ready to face reality.”

Tweet of Hyderabad politician Asaduddin Owaisi on this incident. “This is the pattern with almost all lynchings. First, a Muslim is murdered by cow lovers. Then the most ridiculous excuses begin: a ‘suspicion’ of beef possession, theft, smuggling & love jihad So much for sabka vishwas when we can be killed over mere ‘suspicions’,” he said.
