Ghaziabad Police arrested the attacker after the video went viral
NEW DELHI — A Muslim child, in his teens, was mercilessly thrashed by one Shringi Nandan Yadav of Bhagalpur for drinking water inside a temple in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad on Friday.
After the video showing this barbarity with an innocent child of Muslim community went viral, Ghaziabad Police have arrested the oppressor Yadav for thrashing the boy for no reason except that he was a Muslim, reports media.
In the video, Yadav was seen deceptively hugging a Muslim child without making him realise that he would soon be mercilessly thrashed. The child’s tormentor asked him, “What’s your name?” Without realising the brutal consequences of his response, the innocent child replied that his name was Asif and he was a son of one Habib, according to Janta Ka Reporter.
No sooner did he finish identifying himself, Yadav pounced on the child with brute force by punching and kicking him. He even mercilessly twisted the child’s hand by constantly hurling expletives.
The video elicited strong condemnation from Twitterati, even from Hindus, who felt that Yadav had brought disrepute to his faith by subjecting a child to such inhuman treatment simply because of his faith.
One Rifat Jawaid tweeted, “What kind of sick person you have to be to mercilessly assault a child? His fault was that he went to drink water in the temple. Hope @ghaziabadpolice arrest this sick man! He’s a danger to society!”
The Ghaziabad Police, however, responded to the tweet saying, “We took cognisance of the above video and immediately formed a special team.”
