Responding to a grossly abusive video uploaded by apparently two Muslims threatening dire consequences for Hindus following the unfortunate death of Tabrez Ansari, wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt dubbed them as “rabid dogs” who are in need of urgent attention. He also cautioned that if such people are not treated effectively, situation in the country might quickly deteriorate.
ऐसे पागल कुत्तों के लिए क़ानून कब बनेगा अगर अभी इनका अच्छे से इलाज नहीं हुआ तो आने वाले कुछ सालों में देश के हालात बहुत बिगड़ने वाले हैं. समय रहते हालात को ठीक करना बहुत ज़रूरी है । https://t.co/2tb4kg64qK

In a video, which was shared by journalist Madhu Purnima Kishwar, two agitated Muslim youths can be seen voicing abusive and communally sensitive remarks against the majority community of India for what they perceived was behind the custodial death of Tabrez Ansari. In a menacingly supremacist rant against Hindus, the two truculent men asserted that it was because of Muslims that India is a civilised state and if they are given a free rein for 10 mins, they would show what they are capable of achieving.
The video was uploaded on popular video sharing app TikTok by an account that goes by @danishkhan62727. Along with a score of derogatory and bigoted remarks peppered universally across the 1 minute span of video, the youths in the video said, “We have created this video to speak against our brother Tabrez Ansari’s death. The government might be yours but we still rule the land. Muslims definitely have a greater advantage on others. We have a glorious past that stands testimony to the fact. If you want to fight, declare a war against us. Why are you afraid of granting us 15 mins of free rein? Give us 10 mins, we will finish off your children as well.”
According to the Police, people had gotten into a fight with Ansari on 18th June who was accused of trying to steal a bike. After police got information about the same, they reached the spot and rescued him. Police had also recovered the stolen bike and some other items. The Police gave him first aid, subjected him to a medical examination and then submitted the report to the Court, only then he was sent to jail. Three days later, his health deteriorated and he died.
