Indian police detain 3 in beating death of Muslim man

Last month a mob barged into the house of a Muslim in Meerut and beat him because he was with a Hindu woman.

Even after more than 30 hours of the murder having taken place, the villagers believed that the police could come back for Ahmad's slippers. "Seven persons reportedly attacked the deceased but not a single person belonged to the Hindu Yuva Vahini", Vivek Singh, the Meerut range in charge of the HYV, told The Hindu.

Significantly, the founder of HYV is Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath who inaugurated it on Ram Navmi.

The trouble started a week earlier, on April 27, when 26-year-old Yusuf, son of Ahmads' neighbour Raizuddin Khan, went missing. They claim that Muslim men are trying to spread their faith by seducing Hindu women. The decision was taken by the organisation after they found out that some people who are not BJP members are also posing as the members of Hindu Yuva Vahini and are carrying out violent attacks. After the couple eloped, the girl's family, upset by her relationship with a Muslim man, lodged a kidnapping complaint against Yusuf at the Pahasu police state, the Hindu reported.

The number of men in the group varied from day to day, Vakeel Ahmad said.

Besides Honey Raghav, around half-a-dozen "unknown suspects belonging to Hindu Yuva Vahini" have been mentioned in the First Information Report for the murder of Ghulam Mohammad. The group had visited the village on Tuesday, May 2, morning too, Vakeel Ahmad said, which is when they attacked Ghulam Ahmad as they spotted him outside the mango orchard on their way back.

Zareena told The Indian Express that the family had taken out a loan of Rs.5 lakh to send Yusuf to Saudi Arabia, but he was distant with his relatives after returning.

"The case of a Hindu girl eloping with a Muslim boy led to religious tension and members of the Hindu Yuva Vahini declared it was Love Jihad", said Jagdish Sharma, a police officer leading investigations in Bulandshahr district, 70 km (40 miles) to the southeast of India's capital New Delhi.

According to Dainik Jagran, Hindu residents and shopkeepers in Zahriabad, another town in Bulandshahr district, staged a dharna to demand police action in another case of elopement of a Hindu girl with a Muslim boy.
