A viral video allegedly showing a teenager slapping a 45-year-old Muslim man and forcing him to say “Jai Shri Ram” in India has prompted a protest from the Muslim community, reported News18.

The incident took place in Rajasthan’s Sirohi district and the three-minute video clip shows the accused, identified as Vinay Meena, slapping Mohammad Salim 25 times and forcing him to say “Jai Shri Ram.” The victim in the video can be heard as responding, “Parvardigaar sabse bara hai [God is almighty].”

The video was recorded and circulated by the 18-year-old accused and has led to members of the Muslim community protesting the incident. A complaint has also been filed at the Abu Road City police station against the teenager.

“An FIR was registered yesterday based on a complaint we received from members of the Muslim community,” said Om Prakash, Superintendent of Police Sirohi, while speaking to News18.

Meena is in custody for “voluntarily causing hurt, promoting enmity, hurting religious sentiments, breaking peace,” the SP said further.

On December 6, a 48-year-old Muslim migrant labourer from West Bengal, Mohammad Afrazul, was hacked to death and burnt alive in Rajasthan’s Rajsamand town. A gruesome video of the crime had gone viral.

    What rubbish Indians are? I didn’t visit India and don’t know about Indians much. But this video shows their cruelty for Muslims. Salute to that drunk person who didn’t say that words(——-) after that kind of torture even not present in his proper condition.Recommend

    The Arab Muslims, The Afghan Muslims, The Turk Muslims, The Mongol (Mughal Muslims) has all the right to invade the land of the infidels. Now after 800 years of rule it will take another 400 years for the Hindus to get over it. Unfortunately, the cycle will start again well before that time. So let them have their petty temporary fun. Chin up Muslims, for the time being.Recommend

    This young man either goes to the wrong school or he has the wrong parents. Either way he has been brainwashed for political reasons. To hate others is to love oneself less and to love oneself less is to live a poor quality of life.Recommend
