Cow Vigilantes Killed Muslim Men In Haryana, Drove For 20 Hours: Sources
In a shocking incident of violence, two Muslim men were killed in a suspected hate crime in the northern Indian state of Haryana on Saturday. According to sources, the victims were allegedly killed by cow vigilantes, who drove for 20 hours to reach their destination.
The incident occurred in the village of Jhajjar, located around 70 km south of the state capital, Chandigarh. The two men, identified as Mohammad Akhlaq and Mohammad Ikhlaq, were travelling to the village to attend a wedding when they were attacked by a group of cow vigilantes. The men were reportedly beaten to death with iron rods and sticks.
The attack was allegedly carried out by members of the Hindu right-wing organization, the Bajrang Dal. The organization has been linked to a number of violent attacks on Muslims in the past.
The incident has sparked outrage across India, with many condemning the attack and demanding justice for the victims. The police have arrested three suspects in connection with the incident and are investigating the matter further.
The incident has highlighted the growing problem of cow vigilantism in India. In recent years, there have been a number of incidents of violence against Muslims by cow vigilantes. In some cases, the attackers have even been backed by the government.
The government has been criticised for not doing enough to tackle the problem of cow vigilantism. The incident in Haryana is a stark reminder of the need for the government to take decisive action to prevent such attacks in the future.
The victims’ families have demanded justice and called for the perpetrators to be brought to justice. The incident has also sparked a debate on the need for stricter laws to protect minorities from hate crimes.
