In a shocking incident, a man and his mother were beaten up and the mother was forced to drink the urine of a miscreant in Bengal for the crime of being a mother to a son, who praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a post on Facebook.
Haribhakta Mondal, a home tutor by profession had posted his admiration of Narendra Modi on the social networking site which was accompanied by a picture of the incumbent Prime Minister, which made a few people angry. On Thursday, a group of more than thirty miscreants, who according to Haribhakta belonged to Mamata Banerjee led Trinamool Congress party attacked his house in the Bosa Rameshwarbati area of Dhanekhali, Hooghly.
According to Haribhakta, six people entered his house while he was tutoring his pupils and asked him to come outside for a little chat, it was only after he left his house he discovered a mob of an additional twenty people waiting for him. The mob immediately began thrashing Haribhakta as Haribhakta struggled to understand why he was being thrashed.
The crowd was in frenzy and did not show any restraint. His parents who were present inside the house came to their son’s rescue but to no avail. Haribhakta’s father Ranjit Mondal and mother Sabita Mondal both were beaten by the mob and Ranjit suffered injuries to his foot. His mother also suffered the same fate and was beaten up by the miscreants.
It is what happened after the beating that has brought condemnation from all sections of the society. Sabita Mondal asked for water due to exhaustion from the beating she received. Instead of giving her water, the miscreants urinated on her and forced her to drink that urine.
The local leadership of the Bharatiya Janata Party informed the police and the entire family was rescued and then admitted to Dhanekhali Hospital. They were later shifted to Imambara Sardar Hospital in Chinsura.
The Chairman of the BJP’s OBC Morcha, Swapan Pal termed the incident ‘Barbaric and medieval’ and expressed disgust and anger at the level of indecency and amorality in the TMC party which let the party stoop to this nadir of political principles in a democracy. The BJP has also accused the incumbent Member of Legislative Assembly from TMC, Asima Patra of trying to hush the incident by pressurizing the family.
