Kanpur: Minority bashing in Yogi Adityanath’s Uttar Pradesh continues to wreak havoc. Read on, a 45-year-old Muslim man was beaten up, paraded and coerced into singing Jai Shri Ram in Kanpur on Thursday, according to NDTV.
The despicable incident took place near a Bajrang Dal meeting venue held to protest against the forcible conversion of a Hindu girl. Cops have booked the owner of a band, his son and 10 unidentified persons as complained by the assaulted man whose family is fighting a case against its Hindu neighbours.

“I was driving my e-rickshaw around 3 pm when the accused started abusing and assaulting me and threatening to kill me and my family. I got saved because of the police,” the e-rickshaw driver complained, reported NDTV. He has not spoken to the media as yet.
