In a shocking video, two Kashmiri fruit sellers were beaten up and thrashed by saffron clad men from Vishwa Hindu Dal in Daliganj in Central Lucknow.
Ever since the Pulwama tragedy, the conditions between India and Pakistan have reached a boiling point. Increasing hatred and animosity towards innocent Kashmiris.
The video recorded by one of the attackers, who later released it on social media.
SHOCKING: Some goons in saffron kurtas throttle, assault a Kashmiri dry fruit seller in Lucknow. Passersby come to rescue of the Kashmiri. Case yet to be registered.

In the video the poor vendors are pleading for mercy by covering their heads for being Kashmiri by birth.
These Kashmiri sellers asked to provide proof of identity to the men accusing them.
Some good people asked the men to stop taking the law into their hands.
One man named Bajrang Sonkar arrested.
Another man, Himanshu Awasthi claims as the leader of the Vishwa Hindu Dal posted the video on Facebook. Now taken down.
Moreover, Omar Abdullah condemned the incident.
Nothing will do more damage to the idea of India in J&K than videos like these. Keep thrashing Kashmiris like this on the streets at the hands of RSS/Bajrang Dal goons & then try to sell the idea of “atoot ang”, it simply wont fly. https://t.co/MYkuEuDLjj
