Three Muslims including a woman were thrashed by self-proclaimed gau rakshaks over rumours of carrying beef in Seoni, Madhya Pradesh.
The victims allege they were forced to say slogans of ‘Jai Shree Ram’ by the accused.
The self-proclaimed gau rakshaks had gotten a tip off that two Muslim youths and a woman, who were travelling in an auto, were carrying beef.
A video showing the goons descending on the youths with sticks has gone viral. In the video, the gau rakshaks held the youths to a tree one by one and beat them up mercilessly as the onlookers stood by.
The goons are also heard shouting at the youths to repeat ‘Jai Shree Ram’ slogans while forcing one of the youths to beat the woman who was accompanying them.
Police has registered a case and one person has been arrested, while search is on to nab the others accused.
Reacting on the incident, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said, “This is how Muslims are treated by Vigilantes created by Modi voters.”
