Muslim man stripped, tied to pole and beaten by mob in India
NEW DELHI (92 News) – A Muslim man was stripped, tied to a pole and beaten by a mob in Karnataka’s Mangalore, allegedly for accompanying his Hindu colleague.
The 29-year-old Shakir man is the manager of an accessories store, while the woman was an employee there, and the two were reportedly walking to a Bank when they were attacked by a group of suspected Bajrang Dal activists.
The attackers thrashed the man, stripped him and paraded him through the crowded market area before tying him to an electricity pole.
The beating continued for nearly an hour. The police arrived when the visuals were flashed on local news channels.
The Bajrang Dal is a rightwing Hindu outfit affiliated to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the ideological mentor of the ruling BJP.
