AIMIM Chief Owaisi Strongly Reacts After the Attack on Man at UP Railway Station

Lucknow, Jan 15: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi reacts strongly to the video of a man being beaten at a railway station in Moradabad that went viral on social media.

AIMIM leader Shaukat Ali had previously shared a video clip related to the incident in which the man claimed that a mob had assaulted him and had made him strip and chant “Jai Shri Ram”.

“He was forced to strip and chant JSR slogans. RSS’s Mohan mentioned ‘Hazaar Saal Ki Jung’. Is this another proof of the same war @Uppolice @rpfnr_ Should take strict action on this,” reads the translated tweet from the Twitter handle of Owaisi. According to Moradabad GRP, the man in the clip has been identified as Asim Hussain, 42, a businessman from Moradabad, and the incident took place on January 12 while he was traveling on Padmavat Express from Delhi to Moradabad.

However, Devi Dayal, deputy SP, GRP, Moradabad, refuted the allegations and said a probe found that the man’s fellow passenger beat him up after he allegedly tried to harass a woman. In a video which was shared by AIMIM leaders, the man said that he had boarded a train from Delhi to Moradabad. “A few people began shoving and pushing when the train stopped at the Hapur station and it was crowded there. Someone shouted ‘he is a thief’ and at the same time, those around me began beating me,” he alleged.

“… they pulled my beard and told me to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’ but I refused. I was forced to lie down after being stripped to my waist and brutally beaten with a belt. They beat me so severely that I nearly lost consciousness,” the victim alleged in the video. Replying on Twitter to Owaisi’s tweet, SP GRP wrote in Hindi that on the basis of the complaint received in connection with the incident, a report under relevant sections had been registered.

Denying the allegations made by the victim, Devi Dayal, Dy SP, Moradabad, GRP, said, “An FIR was filed under IPC sections 323, 504, 392, and 298. However, according to preliminary investigation, there was no mention of chanting religious slogans and holding the man by his beard. Additionally, we’ve learned that the man’s fellow passenger beat him up after he allegedly tried to harass a woman.”

    Chhatriwali Movie Review: Rakul Preet Singh’s film is informative but lags in bits

    I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
