Pakistani ministers spread fake news about a Muslim body builder getting lynched by Hindus in India

Danyal Gilani is the Director of the I&B Ministry of Pakistan and was the Former Press Secretary to the Pakistani PM. On Monday he tweeted a newspaper clipping and alleged that a Muslim was brutally murdered by Hindu hooligans in broad daylight:

Khawaja M. Asif is Pakistan’s Federal Minister of Water, Power & Defence. He shared an alleged video of the body builder Naveed getting killed:

Even former Pakistani Ambassador to the US, Sherry Rehman reacted:

A Journalist based in UAE too decided to fuel this narrative:

First of all there are two separate incidents which have been mixed up both by Pakistani papers and the propaganda video makers.

The incident involving bodybuilder Naveed happened in Amravati, Maharashtra. On 18th July Naveed was present near a petrol pump on Walgaon road. There he was brutally attacked by 4-5 people carrying sharp object which resulted in his death. The reports recounting the incident claimed that the murder stemmed from a dispute about running a gym in that area.

Newer reports further clarified the matter. As reported, the police had arrested the accused named Raheem Khan and Mohseen Khan in connection with the murder. According to the report, Raheem himself was a body builder and used to run a gym of his own. The now deceased Naveed used to initially frequent his gym for practice, hence Naveed and Raheem were friends for a while. The gym reportedly had been acquired by Raheem on a rental basis.

Naveed later  wanted to in turn take control of this gym and run it himself. For doing that he had completed all the formalities and was going to take control of it from August 2017. This loss of revenue had irked Raheem, which resulted in him and Naveed having an altercation on 18th July. This was followed by Raheem and 3 others allegedly murdering him.

So clearly not just was the incident not perpetrated by Hindus, it was a result of a professional dispute without any communal angle. Which is a far cry from the “brutal murder of Muslims by Hindu hooligans” narrative which was perpetrated by the Pakistanis.

Secondly coming to the video which was shared by Khawaja M. Asif. This is in no way related to Naveed. This incident happened in Dhule, Maharashtra and as per news reports, the murder was a result of an ongoing gang war. The victim named Rafiquddin Shaikh alias Guddya was recently released from Jail and was then hacked to death by rival gang members on 18th July.

According to the report, Shaikh was the leader of his own gang which constantly indulged in a fight for supremacy with his rival. On 18th about 11-12 people from his rival gang attacked him. He was soon declared dead. One of the accused named Sagar Sahebrao Pawar was recently arrested from Pune and his interrogation has resulted in the police getting important leads. The police has also identified 5 of the accused all of who are history-sheeters. So this incident clearly was a case of a gang warfare and was in no way was related to “ethnic cleansing” as implied by the Pakistanis.
