A shocking viral video with a man identified as Adam Khan shows him being lynched in Nalasopara area of Indian state of Maharashtra by a Hindu mob, reported Indian media.
The video is too disturbing that most cannot watch the brutal attack on Adam Khan.
Five persons have been arrested for allegedly lynching the 27-year-old man to death on suspicion of stealing valuables from a jewellery shop in Nalasopara. Police said that locals claimed that a man named Adam Khan was trying to steal valuables from a shop, following which they attacked him.
Police said that Adam lives with his family in Santosh Bhawan area of Nalasopara. His father Sher Mohammad Khan said that Adam is admitted to ICU of a private hospital in Kandivali.
Speaking to The Indian Express, Sher Mohd Khan said that the incident took place on November 29 when the family was sleeping and Adam was going to a nearby toilet. “While he was walking, a man identified as Mukesh Dubey suddenly appeared, pointed towards Adam and started shouting chor chor,” he said, adding “they hit him on the head and leg”.
However, the police claimed that Adam broke into a jewellery shop and was caught while trying to steal the valuables. In a hurry, six to seven people reached the spot and started fighting with him.
A video clip of the incident has gone viral on social media, in which some people are seen thrashing, punching and even hitting the 27-year-old man with iron rods. The local people gathered around the spot informed the police, after which personnel from Pelhar police station arrived.
Police have registered a case under relevant sections of assault. Sub-inspector Anil Maske said, “Five people were arrested for brutally attacking Adam. We also registered an FIR of attempt to theft against Adam in which the owner of Jai Bhavani Jewellers is the complainant.
Most of the netizens are certain that taking the law into one’s own hands reveals a complete breakdown of law and order and reveals the depths of communalism that India has fallen into in the shocking viral video with a man identified as Adam Khan that shows him being lynched in Nalasopara in Maharashtra.
In recent times, a new rising of violence is being lashed out in India. In April 2022, the country was seen rocketing during Ram Navami. This was the first time in India that such violence was flaring on Ram Navami.
Once again, another incident is sparking off reactions while viewing the horrific lynching of Adam Khan.
Zafarul-Islam Khan from the Delhi Minorities Commission shared, “Man identified as Adam Khan being lynched in Nalasopara(E) under Pelhar PS, Maharashtra. Needs any comment about the condition of law and order under the current dispensation?”
Upset netizens react by saying, “This is absolutely horrifying, how these people have taken the law in their hands and ruthlessly beat a person, will there be any action against these culprits?”
Another said, “It’s not only religions – Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, or Dalits. Now they are coming for fish-eaters Bengalis too. It’s time that humanity unites and fights against extremism…..”
Over the last few years, strings of attacks have hit the Muslim community in abundant frequency with hardly a moment’s rest. They were not spared during Eid.
With the beef ban laws, hijab laws, and new fear-mongering on love jihad, attacks increased a hundredfold. Muslims’ homes and shops were burned down or bulldozed and men, women, and youth were brutally attacked.
Muslims, being a minority of around 16% of the Indian population do feel threatened. It is imperative that the government gives them assurance of safety. As is the case, minorities usually suffer harder in the hands of the majority and are always more vulnerable and threatened. The majority gets the edge off every battle.
Genocide watch founder Prof Stanton eerily predicted “India is in the 8th stage of genocide, just one step away from extermination.”
