Prashant Bhushan slammed for blaming crime by Muslims on ‘Hindutva’

The nation was shocked and outraged after a video of 12-14 hooligans, mostly young men, molesting two girls in Rampur, Uttar Pradesh had emerged on social media last week. Not only the criminals molested the girls, they even filmed the incident and posted the video on social media.

The UP police in this case was quick to take action. Within a couple of days of the news getting viral, they identified all the accused in the case and decided to name and shame them:

The tweet was later deleted, possibly because some of the accused could be minors as per legal documents. Our report is not publishing any other identifier such as the video or images due to the same reason.

Apart from booking all the accused under various sections of the IPC, the police has also slapped the SC/ST act against the accused. They also have been largely successful in their efforts to arrest them, with 12 arrested till yesterday.

Even though the names of the accused are in the public domain, lawyer and activist Prashant Bhushan deliberately decided to blame ‘Hindutva’ and Anti-Romeo squads of Uttar Pradesh for the gruesome Rampur Molestation.

Not just he dragged religion and politics in the whole issue, what made the matters worse is that he chose to virtually endorse a tweet by Pakistani journalist who tried to paint India as lawless society unsafe for women (as if Pakistan is the heaven on those counts):


In any such crime the religion of the criminal rarely crosses people’s mind, but many decided to drop this political correctness and confront the malicious tweet of the lawyer who was a founder member of the Aam Aadmi Party:


Even after all the outrage and facts being cited to him, Prashant Bhushan did not delete his tweet. Perhaps it will take another FIR that will make his see the facts, as had happened last time when he had tweeted derogatory content against Lord Krishna while commenting on the Anti-Romeo Squad (now renamed as ‘Nari Suraksha Bal’) of Uttar Pradesh.
