Hindu woman hits muslim boyfriend: In a bid to humiliate an interfaith couple, a Hindu woman was allegedly forced to beat up her Muslim boyfriend with skippers in public. A56-second- video was also shot and circulated. This was followed by members of the Hindu Jagran Manch, a right-wing outfit, trying to get the Muslim man arrested for “forced conversion”. They were, however, later booked for rioting.
As per a report, it all started when a shopkeeper saw the couple standing under a tree in Meerut’s busy market. He spread the word and in no time, he came there with 11 other men who confronted the couple and started taking their details. They asked them their names.
On coming to know that the woman was Hindu and the man was Muslim, they allegedly started attacking the man and then asked the woman to hit him hard in the face. After this, they asked her to hit him with slippers. She slapped him with slippers twice. After this, the men make him hold his ears through his legs and thrash him again. The man was allegedly dragged to the police station where they wanted to get him booked for “forced conversion”.
The woman, however, intervened and told police authorities that the man had not misbehaved with her and she was with him due to her own will. Determined to get the man arrested, the Hindu Jagran Manch men allegedly roped in the mother of the woman’s friend who who gave a written complaint to the police saying that the man had forcefully dragged her minor daughter onto the streets of the market.
Devesh Singh, circle officer, Civil Lines, told TOI that they found that the complaint was wrong and was filed under pressure. An FIR was lodged against the men for rioting, injuring the man and abetment of offence. No arrest has been made yet.
