MP : Afraid of being lynched a Muslim youth killed his attackers in self defence


By Mohammad Shakir Hussain Qasmi

Several versions have been circulating of the news relating to the killing by Aslam of three people who had tried to mob-lynch him. Here we are producing what Aslam’s father has narrated to us.

Aslam, a 23-year-old motor mechanic and eldest of two sons, is a resident of Mangavali, District Ashok Nagar, Madhya Pradesh.

One day before Baqra Eid he went, along with essentials, to his maternal aunt’s house to celebrate Eid and perform the animal sacrifice there. [After prayers and the sacrifice and] Before returning to his home Aslam also went to the nearby Rajghat Dam for an outing along with his cousin sisters and some other children. Here they met some boys who passed inappropriate remarks about the girls that led to an argument between those boys and Aslam. [In order to avoid more trouble] Aslam took the girls and the children back to his aunt’s house. As he sought aunt’s leave to return to his home, she asked him to have food before leaving. As he was having his lunch, the four boys, with whom he had had the encounter earlier at the Dam, arrived there and started shouting abuses at the family. At this, Aslam’s aunt intervened and tried to settle the matter. She then asked Aslam to leave immediately saying that the boys were unsocial elements.

Aslam immediately left the house and waited for a bus at the bypass road.  Unable to get a bus, he took the Magic (big auto). However, as the auto neared the neighbouring village, the four boys reappeared there on their motorbikes and made the auto stop and without saying a word they attacked Aslam. Aslam pleaded for their forgiveness but they were not willing to spare him. This scenario fitted the pattern of incidents being often reported these days in the country in which an innocent loner is attacked and ignoring his pleas for mercy a violent crowd lynches him to death.

Realising that the attackers were determined to kill him, he took out the equipments he had brought with him to perform animal sacrifice and in defence attacked the intended lynchers. This changed the whole scene.  One of the boys who attacked Aslam first, fell on the ground and started writhing. One of the others ran for his life while three of them sustained deep injuries. Two of them died at the scene and the third died in hospital.

Following the news of the incident a crowed assembled there and surrounded Aslam Some of the crowd suggested and many of them claimed that he be killed as well. At this Aslam shouted that if anyone dared touch him he would lay him dead on the ground. Hearing Aslam’s warning no one in the crowd dared come near him and showed up the courage to come close to him. Upon realising that they, on their own could not handle Aslam, someone in the crowd dialled 100 and informed the police. The police arrested Aslam and in order to trap Aslam the crowd made up a new story and filed an FIR on the basis of that. They said that Aslam had old animosity towards the attackers because of which he had killed them. However, Aslam’s father says that Aslam did not even know anyone of them.

  1. It is pity that in other cases of mob lynchings a across India, no one from crowd came and lodges FIR. Here crowd is making false story. That is why it is essential that police and governments shall protect each and every individuals rather than allowing everyone to protect themselves. Indian constitution gives the right to self defense or each individual. Now it is to been seen how the case against aslam will be handled and whether he will let free on the basis of self defense. This is the opportunity for judiciary to set an example to mob that they should not try to lynch anyone.

  2. Aaj se yahi hoga sab ka anjaam jio Shar Aslam Bhai tumne dikha Diya sab ko rasta brother sab hoshiyar raho yeh kutte sirf bheedh mein hi bhhokhte Hain akele aane ki inki auqaat nahi aise log marre koi farq nahi padega yeh samaj ki gandi naali ke Kidde Hain

  3. Yeh log Hindu Muslim ki ekta ko khattam karna chahte Hain aise log marre toh kisi ko taqleef nahi hogi aise logone Hindu Muslim ko har waqy ladate aaye Hain phir bhi hamara India behtar Hain kyun ke yahan sab dharam ke vyakti Mill jayenge kuch log aisi gandhi harkat karke sab ko sharminda karte Hain hamare dil mein kissi ke liye nafarat nahi chahe Hindu ho ya Sikh ya esai humhe sirf aise logon se nafarat hamare desh ko todna chahte Hain aise angrez hi tod nahi payya aise log Kya todenge yeh log ram ka naam badnaam Karne par tulle Hain bhakto kabhi bhagwat Geeta padke deep mein jao Hindu Kya hota Hain pata lag jayega Hindu toh asani se kehle te ho asli Hindu toh woh hota Hain pyar vishwas dusre dharam ke baare mein achha sochna asli Hindu woh hota Hain khair usne self defense ke liye khud ko bachane ki koshish ki uski koi ghalti nahi dekhte Hain sarkar ab Kya karti Hain court ka faisla virodhi Jeet te aaye hain

  4. An eye opener. Really the trend is dangerous. all this is hidden by so called mainstream media. May the almightly help in his release.

  5. The coward mob had vulgar amusement when hapless Muslims were lynched on false pretexts but now when Aslam acted in self defense the same cowards are trying to fabricate charges against him.
    Our executive and judicial wings are on trial.

  6. Save Aslam from the Xulm of police and unjust judiciary. This will give courage to more Muslims for self defense from mob lynching crowds
