‘Teri maa ka bh*s**,’ Uber driver Aftab gets angry on seeing Shivaji Mandir, gets abusive with passenger

OpIndia has reached out to Uber for an official statement on the alleged behaviour of the drivers

In yet another shocking incident from Mumbai, an Uber driver Aftab allegedly got angry when he saw the Shivaji Mandir, a theatre in Mumbai and started abusing Chhatrapati Shivaji, the warrior king who once fought the Mughals. Twitter user Samiir said that when he was passing by the Shivaji Mandir near Plaza Cinema in Mumbai, the uber driver Aftab started abusing Shivaji Maharaj and said, “Teri maa ka bh*s**”.

Samiir says that Aftab then lost his cool that everywhere there is ‘Shivaji’ (a lot of landmarks in Mumbai are named after Chhatrapati Shivaji including the Mumbai international airport and the Mumbai Central railway station) and that they ‘worship’ him.

Samiir claims that he asked Aftab to mind his language, Aftab got more abusive and his tone got even more threatening.

Samiir says Aftab insisted that no one should worship Shivaji and at one point asked Samiir to get off his Uber in middle of his trip. Aftab, Samiir claims, said that he did a favour to him by picking him up despite the traffic. After reluctantly dropping Samiir to his location, Aftab proceeded to grab Samiir’s phone and give himself a 5 star rating for his ‘service’.

Samiir says that when he reported the matter to Uber, Uber credited the amount he had paid back to his account and said that action has been taken against the driver. Samiir says that it is necessary for even the minorities to be sensitized about the faith of Hindus so that everyone feels safe in the country. Samiir says that while there are media reports where Hindus are shown to be baying for Muslim blood and out to lynch them, experiences of people like Samiir are brushed under the carpet.

Two days back we had reported how a lady with the Twitter handle @sona2905 was subjected to rude and obnoxious behaviour of an Uber driver, Usman, who got aggressive on seeing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s picture on her phone cover. He started off with refusing to turn on the air conditioner in the Uber and even told her to ‘ask Modi to send her a cab’.

OpIndia has reached out to Uber for an official statement on the measure it has taken safety of the passengers and the drivers’ alleged behaviour. We shall update the report once we get a response from them.
