After the deadly Pulwama attack, the assault on Kashmiri residents all over the North has been increasing to a great extent. Such headlines not only boil our blood but also shows how regressive our thought are.
Yesterday, in Lucknow, a disgraceful incident took place where a dry fruits seller was physically assaulted by a few men who donned saffron outfits. The seller is said to be a Kashmiri man. A bystander has recorded this appalling incident and the video went viral on the internet.
The UP cops have swung into action right after watching the video. In the video, we can see how a street vendor has been whipped and beaten by a man. However, he was saved by local residents. One of the men has been identified as Bajrang Sonkar, who has a history of 12 criminal cases, including a murder case.
This issue has been strongly condemned by several political leaders and also by former J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah. An appeal has been raised to Home Minister Rajnath Singh asking them to punish severely.
