Rinku Sharma-like mob lynching of Hindu in Muslim-dominated Malwani narrowly averted

On Tuesday night a Hindu resident of the Muslim-dominated Malwani region of Mumbai narrowly escaped the fate that befell Rinku Sharma in Delhi after a communally charged Muslim mob tried to force their way inside his house in a deja vu of the Mongolpuri episode.

According to legal rights NGO Legal Rights Observatory, a mob of 15-20  Muslims reportedly tried to barge inside the house of a Hindu youth at the Chheda Complex, Mumbai. However, the mob was unable to get inside the house and the Hindu youth was saved from a certain tragedy.

This case is also similar to the brutal murder of Rinku Sharma in Delhi’s Mangolpuri where a mob had entered Sharma’s house and stabbed him to death over an alleged argument over the collection of funds for the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.

In Malwani, the incident took place after the victim stood up to the constant bullying and harassment meted out by the region’s Muslim youths.

As per OpIndia sources,

“A group of Muslim youths making unpalatable remarks against the passers-by was accosted on Tuesday by the Hindu victim, who asked them to refrain from indulging in such activities. Annoyed by the opposition from the Hindu man, the group of men threatened him with dire consequences. Following the confrontation, a mob of 15-20 people gathered outside the house of the Hindu man, trying to barge inside his house.

The situation was finally salvaged after locals in the region intervened and persuaded the mob to relent. When the victim reached the police station to file an FIR against the goons, the police reportedly turned down the demand, dismissing the incident as a minor altercation between two ‘friends’.

After the police refused to file an FIR in the case, the victim and the Hindu representatives in the region reportedly contacted BJP Mumbai President Mangal Prabhat Lodha and apprised him of the developments. On Lodha’s insistence, the police filed an NC against the mob that threatened the resident.

Lodha also took to Twitter to comment on the sad state of affairs in Mumbai’s Malwani region. He condemned the reprehensible attempt of mob lynching in Malwani and urged the Centre to launch a special investigation in the case.

Following the incident, an overwhelming sense of fear has gripped the remaining Hindu minorities in the region. The mother of the victim is horrified by the ugly turn of events and is mulling over shifting the family back to her native village. Others in the region feel the constant bullying and harassment of Hindus is a part of the larger conspiracy to force them into leaving the place and encroach upon their homes and lands.”

Malwani is a predominantly Muslim area and there is a conscious attempt to drive Hindus away from the area. The support and backing given to Muslim goons by the likes of Congress MLA Aslam Shaikh have emboldened Muslim hooligans of the area to terrorize Hindus and grab their lands. The police are almost always a mute spectator or worse supporter of Hindudveshi acts here as was evident from the tearing down of Prabhu Sri Ram posters during the Ram Mandir fund collection drive in January this year.

Rinku Sharma Murder Case

25-year-old Bajrang Dal activist Rinku Sharma was stabbed to death by a Muslim mob who dragged him out of his house in Delhi’s Mangolpuri on Wednesday night. Although mainstream media (MSM) is attempting to whitewash the case as one of a brawl between two parties, it has come to light that Sharma was brutally murdered after an argument over the Ram Mandir donation drive.
