Aljazeera- A man has been dragged out of his house and beaten to death by a mob near New Delhi over rumours that his family killed and ate a cow, the victim’s brother has told Al Jazeera. Mohammed Akhlaq, 52, a resident of Bisara village in Gautam Budh Nagar, about 40km from the Indian capital, was attacked on Monday night. He died of his injuries early on Tuesday while his 22-year-old son Mohammed Danish was admitted to a nearby hospital in a critical condition. “My brother threw goat’s kin in the garbage dump. But some people circulated a rumour that a cow was slaughtered and an announcement was made from the local temple,” Mohammed Saifi, the victim’s brother, said. “Soon a mob of about 1,000 people, armed with lathis [baton] and swords, gathered and attacked the house of my brother. “They did not even spare my 82-year-old mother Asgari Begum, who has suffered injuries along with Akhlaq’s wife and daughter Sajida Saifi,” he said. The attack on Akhlaq, a Muslim, comes amid rising tensions between Hindus and religious minorities in the Uttar Pradesh state, where the incident occurred.



Religion, so hot in the streets right now (and for the last couple thousands years).  We just had Popemania here. People losing their goddamn minds over a crusty old virgin who wears a funny hat and breathes the same air as you and me.  And now this.  Mobs dragging a dude out of his house because he may or may not have scarfed down a Whopper. That’s my favorite part.  That the guy eating beef was just a rumor. Is this what gossip is like in India? About who is eating beef and who isn’t eating beef?  Well they weren’t sure if he did it or not but fuck it.  We haven’t mobbed up in awhile so let’s do this. Grab the torches and pitch forks. This is where religion loses me. Don’t you ever tell me what I can and can’t eat. You don’t want me to murder my neighbors in cold blood?  Fine. Even if they do inexplicably wait until midnight to rearrange furniture.  You don’t want me to fuck my neighbor’s wife? Okay. She’s ugly anyway. But I’ll be damned if you’re gonna say I can’t eat cheeseburgers. That’s where I draw the line.  And I know I’m mixing religions here but it doesn’t matter. They’re all equally dumb. Give me steak/cheeseburgers/beef jerky or give me death.



So if the rumor turns out to be not true, and it turns out the guy was just snacking on some goat, does the mob of people get in trouble?  Or is it just accepted that mobs, like playas, fuck up sometimes and everybody moves on?
