Fringe saffron elements assaulted Muslim women over Beef rumour in MP

Mandsaur, MP: Two Muslim women were slapped, kicked and abused by Hindu Dal activists in Madhya Pradesh for allegedly carrying beef.

As per a report in NDTV, on Tuesday the mob led by by cow vigilantes assaulted the Muslim women until one of them collapses at Mandsaur railway station even after they had been detained by the police.

The spectators for their part filmed the incident on the mobile phones and did nothing to stop the mob from beating up the Muslim women.

The NDTV report further says that this continued for almost half-an-hour, before the police made half-hearted attempts to control the crowd.

Police received the information that women from Jaora travelling with a large quantity of beef to sell it in Mandsaur reached the railway station and apprehend them.

30 kg of meat has been recovered from the women which was later examined by a local doctor revealed it to be a BUFFALO meat NOT BEEF.

Both the women have been produced in court but no action has been taken against the the men and women who publicly assaulted them or the policemen at the spot.

Earlier this month, four Dalit men were flogged, tied to an SUV and paraded for allegedly skinning a dead cow in Una in Gujarat by ‘Gau-Rakshak’ (cow protectors).
