Did you even know all these Hindu victims of ‘minority’ rage?

Some of these victims were killed recently, and have been in the news at least on portals such as HinduPost. But some might have escaped most readers’ attention.

Two such are Vidhu Jain and Heena Talreja. The case of Vidhu Jain is extremely tragic.  Vidhu was a 12-year-old boy in the Muslim majority area of Malerkotla, Punjab. In 2014, he had an altercation with 2 youth over kite string at his father’s shop. A few days later, those men and their accomplices got hold of Vidhu, put him in a bag, doused him with kerosene, and set him on fire. He burnt to death.  

Very few papers (I am only aware of DailyMail of UK) even mentioned that the accused youth were of the “minority community” (which in Malerkotla is a majority). The police detained one youth, but that immediately drew a protest march by the “minority community.” As of date, there have been no arrests in the case. Police, as is the norm in such cases when victim is Hindu, has just buried the case in order to avoid ‘communal polarization’ – the hapless parents went to court to get the investigation transferred to CBI, but even that has failed to get them justice. 12-year-old Vidhu was simply forgotten by the system. 

Heena Talreja’s case is no less tragic, if a little more typical of Love Jihad cases.  She was gang raped by her Muslim husband and 2 of his accomplices because she protested against him marrying a second time. She was then murdered. 

These are just SOME of the many more Hindus killed by Muslims in small or large groups. For example, the picture of victims shared in the beginning does not show Bharat Yadav, the lassi vendor lynched to death by a Roza-breaking mob because he dared to ask them for money for his lassi. It does not include Ankit Tyagi, killed for reporting financial fraud done by Muslim co-workers in his company. It does not include Gangaram who complained to the police that his daughter had been abducted by his Muslim neighbor, and was beaten to death the next day for daring to lodge that complaint.

Devout Hindu and practising brahmin, very interested in history and current affairs of Bharat. Do not believe in birth-based "caste" but rather varna based on swadharma and swabhava, and personal commitment to that varna's dharmas. I don't judge people by the religion they profess: every human being should be treated with equal dignity. At the same time, I don't judge a religion by the people I know who profess it. A religion, like any doctrine, should be subjected to critical examination using facts and reason.
