In a deeply distressing incident that highlights discrimination and horror, the largest minority in India, the Muslims, have once again faced tragedy. An elderly Muslim couple lost their lives in Uttar Pradesh due to the relationship between their son and a Hindu woman.
This heart-wrenching event took place in Sitapur city of Uttar Pradesh. Abbas and Kamrul Nisha, the couple, were tragically killed on the spot during the attack, and the responsible individuals fled the scene.
The Superintendent of Police in Sitapur, Chakresh Mishra, shared that a few years ago, Abbas’s son had eloped with a girl from a neighboring household. Legal actions were taken, resulting in Abbas’s son being sent to jail. However, upon his release from jail, certain family members orchestrated the fatal attack on the couple.
Chakresh Mishra stated, “According to the villagers, the deceased couple’s son, Shaukat, had a romantic involvement with Rampal’s daughter, Ruby. Shaukat had previously eloped with Ruby in 2020 when she was a minor. A case was registered, leading to Shaukat’s imprisonment. Tragically, he once again abducted and married Ruby in June.”
This tragic incident underscores the complex societal issues arising from religious differences and relationships in India.
Earlier, a violent clash occurred outside South Hall, Broadway in West London on the night of August 15th, involving Indian men celebrating Independence Day and a small group of pro-Khalistan British Sikhs who chose not to participate in the celebrations.
The confrontation resulted in two Hindu sustaining serious injuries and receiving hospital treatment. The incident unfolded as hundreds of Indian men gathered to express their support for India, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and the RSS. They were waving Indian flags and chanting slogans when they encountered a group of approximately five Sikhs carrying Khalistan flags.
The Indian crowd was also shouting slogans in support of extremist Hindu groups like the RSS and BJP. Attempts were made to involve the Sikhs in the celebrations, but they declined, leading to tensions escalating.
Video footage captured the moment when the situation turned violent. The Indian crowd advanced towards the Sikhs despite the presence of police officers attempting to maintain order. The Indian group berated the Sikhs, hoping to provoke a reaction, and an altercation broke out. The Sikh men were chased and assaulted, with one using his Kirpan (a ceremonial Sikh dagger) in self-defense. Two Sikh men were severely beaten and had to be hospitalized.
According to an eyewitness, the conflict ignited when both groups displayed their flags and escalated when the Indian supporters pushed forward despite police warnings. The violent encounter led to the police intervening to stop the assault.
