Cow Vigilantes Beat Up Muslim Shephard In Kashmir For Chasing Cows From Field

Mohammad Asghar was beaten black and blue by 20 -strong mob and has now been hospitalized with serious injuries.

A Muslim Shepard was beaten up by a mob of cow vigilantes in Garri Gabbar village in Jammu and Kashmir’s Reasi district. The said incident happened after his son drove a few cows away from their pastureland, News18 reported on Sunday. Mohammad Asghar was beaten black and blue by 20 -strong mob and has now been hospitalized with serious injuries. The aforementioned instance happened a few days back when the cows strayed into Asghar’s field and began eating and destroying his crop.

One of the cow received an injury on the back when Asghar’s son drove the cows away from the pasture. The local community was irked by this and a headman of the village asked Asghar to report to an uphill village for a meeting.

The cow vigilantes pounced on them and beat them up when Asghar and his son arrived for the meeting, Malik Abbas, a Gujjar community activist, told News18. The video of the incident has now gone viral on social media.

Mushtaq Ahmad, Asghar’s brother, said, “More than 60 people beat him with sticks and bare hands. His condition is very bad. You cannot imagine what he has gone through.”

Whereas Abbas informed that Asghar’s son, who is 16-year-old, now faces a police case.

‘’Why was the case not slapped on the first day?” he asked. “Why now? The counter FIR [first information report] filed by the majority community is based on a blatant lie,” he said.

The police registered a first information report under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, Reasi Senior Superintendent of Police Wazir said. Somebody had deliberately injured the cow with a sharp weapon, he added. A total of three cases had been registered, and several accused apprehended, the Jammu Police said later on Sunday evening.

“Peace and harmony will be maintained at all costs in Jammu zone,” police added.
