A Hindu patient was brutally beaten to death by a fellow Muslim patient over a trivial misunderstanding in a hospital in West UP’s Shahjahanpur district.
As per a report –
“The quarrel began when accused Abdul Rehman asked fellow patient Hansram to vacate a bed. As Hansram refused, Abdul started beating him. By the time the hospital staff arrived, Hansram was dead.
According to the hospital authorities, Hansram (45) had complained of high fever and weakness after which he was admitted to the hospital on Friday. Accused Abdul (25) was getting treatment for dehydration at a nearby bed of the same ward.
On Sunday morning, Abdul came back from the toilet and mistook Hansram’s bed for his own. He asked him to vacate it. After Hansraj refused, Abdul lifted him from the bed and threw him on the ground. He then sat on his chest and thrashed him, which led to his death.
After the incident, Shahjahanpur district magistrate Indra Vikram Singh and senior police officials also visited the hospital and ensured necessary action was taken against the accused.
Abdul’s father Rehman claimed that his son was mentally ill but he couldn’t provide medical documents to support his claim. The family members of the deceased created a ruckus, accusing the hospital administration of negligence.
Superintendent of police (city) Sanjay Kumar said, “We have registered an FIR under section 304 (culpable homicide) and the accused has been detained. He is not able to give proper answers to our questions. The family members of the victim are satisfied with police action.”
If a Muslim dies after villagers thrash him for stealing, or in a fight over a train seat, the entire English-language MSM goes into outrage mode and the issue goes international. But Hansram, a poor watchman, will die unmourned, forgotten in the inside pages of our newspapers. The time-tested ‘insanity’ defense given by Ahmed’s father could very well earn him a pardon from our courts. In a way, what is drilled into Muslim minds in madrasas and mosques against kafirs does qualify as a form of mental insanity, but we can be sure our courts and secular polity will dare not tread in that direction lest they end up like Kamlesh Tiwari.
If an elderly Muslim man dies due to medical complications while undergoing treatment in a hospital, his friends & family vandalise the hospital and thrash doctors so bad that they end up in ICU. But here, a Hindu man was beaten mercilessly to death by a so-called ‘dara hua’ (scared) minority, and the SP of the city is saying “the family members of the victim are satisfied with police action.” And this is the situation in a state ruled by a ‘Hindu nationalist fascist’ if one were to believe NDTV, Wire, Indian Express, NYT, WaPo et al!
