Faridabad Cow Vigilantes

New Delhi:
Violent cow vigilantes in the morning of Friday brutally thrashred a Muslim auto-rickshaw driver and four others in Old Faridabad. However, instaed of taking action against the violent attackers in line with a Supreme Court order, Haryana police booked the victims.

"A case can also be filed against the cow vigilantes if the victims came with a compalint", the state police said.

The brutal incident on Friday morning barely days after the Supreme Court of India directed the government to take action against such violent attackers.

“We were beaten black and blue and told to raise slogans like ‘gau mata ki jai’ (hail the cow mother) and hanuman ki jai (hail hanuman) —which we refused”, said Azad, the auto rickshaw driver said. Three of the four victims appeared to be Muslims, as reported by Hindustan Times.

Accompanied by Sonu, 14, an employee of the meat supplier, Azad was driving the auto rickshaw in Faridabad to deliver buffalo meat to a shop when they were stopped by six men, travelling in a car, who accused them of transporting beef.

"I told them it wasn't beef and we could go to the police... but they didn't listen," Azad later told NDTV. They took them away to Basadi village a short distance away.

He added that the assault continued even after the policemen arrived on the scene.

“We have registered a case under sections of Haryana Gauvansh Sanrakshan and Gausamvardhan Act Act against Asad, Shehzad, Shakeel and Sonu”, said ACP Mujesar Radhey Shyam.

Meanwhile, a preliminary probe has revealed that the meat been carrying in the auto was not beef but buffalo meat.

Attacks in the name of cow protection increased ever since the BJP came to power in Delhi and other states. Alaramed by the rising attacks against Muslims and Dalits in the name of cow, the Supreme Court of India asked the government to ensure no one takes law in their hands.
