Muslim men attempt to rape Dalit women and a minor, attack them with axes and firearms

In a heinous crime, men belonging to the Muslim community barged into the house of a Dalit family in Pratapgarh, Uttar Pradesh and attempted to rape two women and a minor. Failing in their attempt, they assaulted the women with axes and attacked them with firearms before fleeing the scene. The women are currently undergoing treatment at a hospital. Their situation is deemed to be critical. The Police are currently searching for the accused. The names of the accused are Sham Shakil, Shahid and Muhammad Ali.

In an unrelated incident in Rajasthan, a Muslim mob assaulted Dalit women on the 19th of February and beat them up because their procession was playing music as they passed by a mosque.

Thus far, harbingers of Dalit-Muslim unity like Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani and Shehla Rashid have maintained a stoic silence over the series of crimes committed against the Dalit community by Muslims.
