Two Muslim men in India’s Udaipur have murdered a Hindu over his post supporting former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Nupur Sharma’s blasphemous comments.
According to reports, the incident took place near the Bhoot Mahal on Maldas Street in Udaipur. The two men entered the tailor’s shop as customers and grabbed to behead him with a knife.
Meanwhile, BJP politician Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga posted a video, in which it can be seen that one man entered the victim’s shop as a customer while the other was possibly shooting the video. When the tailor was taking the man’s body measurements, he grabbed his neck and attacked him from the back. The victim can be heard crying and screaming while he was beheaded with a raw knife by the men. The tailor’s body covered in plastic was seen lying outside his shop with blood overflowing on the streets.
In another video, the assailants, who identified themselves as Mohammad Riyaz and Ghouse Mohammed, can be seen claiming responsibility for their actions and threatening Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Following the murder, the traders in the area shut their shops and demanded that the accused be arrested. There were also protests in some areas.
Later, the police arrested the attackers.
