On June 21, a controversy had erupted after a Muslim man had claimed that he was allegedly hit by a car after he refused to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’. A madrasa teacher named Mohammed Momin had alleged that he was allegedly abused and then run over by the car as he refused to chant Hindu religious slogans at Delhi’s Rohini Sector.
However, an eyewitness at the spot has now rubbished the claims of Mohammed Momin. As per the police report, the eyewitness during the preliminary investigation did not substantiate the allegations.
“During a preliminary investigation, we found an eyewitness who gave a sequence of events, Momin’s claims have not been substantiated so far”, DCP (Rohini) S D Mishra said.
Another police officer also confirmed, “The accounts given by some eyewitnesses of the incident do not substantiate the claims made by the victim but the investigation is underway”. CCTV footage from near the crime scene has also not been able to prove the allegations.
Following the incident, the ‘liberal-secular’ media had begun to demonise Hindus for attacking a madrasa teacher. The secular media had found a new victim in Momin, which they further used to perpetuate a false narrative about ‘Muslim victimhood’.
However, the new reports by the police suggest that there is no substantive evidence to prove that Momin was allegedly attacked by a group of people after he refused to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’.
Recently, in a similar incident in Gurugram, a Muslim man named Barkat Alam had alleged that his skull cap was thrown away after a group of Hindus had attacked him. However, later these allegations were found to be untrue after a police investigation.
