Hindu Man Brutally Killed For Marrying a Muslim girl in Bihar. Where is Indian Media?
As per report published in Dainik Bhaskar dt. On 23 March 2015, a case of abduction and murder due to inter-religious marriage in Hajipur, Bihar. The deceased (Sanjeev) married a Muslim girl four months ago. It is alleged that angry relatives of the bride, along with some villagers, abducted the bride and bridegroom and plotted the “honor killing”.
The incident was reported from Senduari village of Hajipur. According to the police, the deceased Sanjeev Patel alias Putul married the daughter of Mohammed Ajajul four months ago. After the love marriage, Mohammed Ajajul registered a case of kidnapping against Sanjeev, but the bride, Chandni, confirmed in the local court that she wanted to stay with her Husband.
Around 100 people attacked the house of Sanjeev. After brutally thrashing Sanjeev and his brother, they abducted Sanjeev and his wife. On Sunday afternoon, people found the body of Sanjeev close to the village of the bride.
People found the body of Sanjeev, but the bride was still missing. The incident has created tensions in both the villages, and the boy’s side is preparing to take revenge.
While the police and administration are trying their best that this incident doesn’t result into any major communal conflagration, many similar incidences have been reported in the past.Media has been very selective in picking and debating moral policing cases from Khaps or random Hindu organizations, but they don’t highlight cases in which inter-religious killings are involved, especially where the victims are from the Hindu community. If these cases are not highlighted by the media and the activists, the fight against religious bigotry and moral policing will smack of hypocrisy and selective propaganda
