Hyderabad: After Pulwama attack, Govt. of India issued directive to the State Governments to ensure the security of Kashmiris but in Hyderabad even the local Muslims are not secure.
In one such incident, a Muslim youth was assaulted by miscreants on the suspicion that he raised pro-Pakistan slogans.
According to the details, Shaik Mohammed Jaffer (28), a businessman was going from Mallepally to Sitarambagh wearing a namaz cap. The miscreants who were part of the protest rally against Pulwama attack dashed his vehicle and later indulged in heated arguments.
The miscreants alleged that the youth had raised the slogan, ‘Pakistan Zindabad’. However, Jaffer denied it.
Following the heated arguments, a group of five miscreants attacked him. Later, Mr. Jaffar approached Habeeb Nagar Police Station to lodge a complaint. In his complaint, he mentioned that miscreants attacked him seeing his namaz cap.
The sub-Inspector on duty registered an ordinary case of quarrel ignoring Mr. Jaffar’s statement.
When Mr. T. Amruta Reddy, Inspector of Police, Habeeb Nagar was contacted, he told that some people attacked Jaffar and it is a case of road accident. He also assured that miscreants will be arrested soon.
Mr. Jaffar told the media persons that he is an Indian and did not raise any pro-Pakistan slogans. He said that he was targeted as he is a Muslim.
