Man who shot at anti-CAA protesters calls for abduction of Muslim women, encourages attacks on Muslims
The 17-year-old who opened fire on anti-CAA protesters near Jamia Millia Islamia last year attended a mahapanchayat in Pataudi, where he encouraged the crowd to kidnap Muslim women and “warned” those with a “terrorist mindset” that if he can “go to Jamia in support of CAA,” “Pataudi is not very far.”
A purported video of his speech at the mahapanchayat widely shared by people on social media.
In the video, he can be heard saying that when Muslims are attacked, they will shout ‘Ram Ram’.
He also called on people to abduct Muslim women if Hindu women are “taken away”, in the Mahapanchayat.
“I want to issue this warning from Pataudi to… Jihadis, individuals with a terrorist attitude; if (I) can walk 100 kilometres to assist CAA in Jamia, then Pataudi isn’t that far),” he says before concluding his speech with the chant “Jai Sri Ram.”
Last year, the teenager had opened fire at anti-CAA protesters near Jamia Millia Islamia on January 30. He brandished a gun at the protesters and shouted “Yeh lo azadi (Here, take azadi)”, “Desh mein jo rehna hoga, Vande Mataram kehna hoga (If you want to stay in the country, you have to say Vande Mataram)” and “Dilli Police zindabad”. One student of the university was injured in the incident.
An FIR under IPC Section 307 (attempt to murder) was registered against him and he was apprehended from the spot.
