Delhi — Muslim Man Beaten To Death On The Suspicion Of Theft, Propagandists Circulated Video With Communal Claims: Fact-Check

The Incident: What Happened

Contrary to the initial claims, the Delhi Police promptly took action in this case. They apprehended seven individuals, including a juvenile, in connection with the assault. The accused have been identified as Kamal, Manoj, Kishan, Pappu, Lucky, and Yunus. Importantly, the police have clarified that the attack had no religious or communal motivations. The victim, Israr Ahmed, hailed from the Muslim community and had disabilities. He was subjected to this horrifying ordeal on suspicion of theft, not for consuming Prasad at a Hindu temple, as initially asserted by propagandists and some media outlets.

Police Investigation and Action

The Delhi Police swiftly initiated an investigation into the lynching of Israr Ahmed. They have been actively interrogating the arrested individuals and investigating CCTV footage to identify the main culprits. Eyewitnesses and other suspects have also been questioned. The police stated that the attackers hailed from various religious backgrounds, underscoring that the assault was rooted in suspicion of theft.

The accused have been charged under sections 302 (murder) and 34 (act involving two or more persons) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The police have assured swift action and justice for the perpetrators.

Victim’s Background and Family Reaction

Israr Ahmed’s father, Abdul Wajid, provided insight into his son’s condition and the events leading up to the tragedy. Israr had mental health issues, and according to his father, he left home early one morning while the family was still asleep. He was later accosted by a group of people, who accused him of theft, leading to the brutal assault. The family vehemently denied the allegations against Israr, emphasizing that he was innocent and not a thief. They highlighted Israr’s inability to communicate effectively due to his mental challenges.

Intent and Conclusion

It is important to address the intent behind the spread of misinformation and propaganda related to this incident. Certain propagandists, including pro-Muslim accounts and anti-India international media outlets, deliberately circulated false claims to further their own agenda. Their objective was to portray Hindus as intolerant and to undermine the secular fabric of India, particularly under the leadership of the BJP government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In conclusion, the tragic incident involving the brutal assault and subsequent death of Israr Ahmed in Delhi was not driven by religious or communal hatred. Instead, it was a horrific incident rooted in the suspicion of theft. The Delhi Police have taken swift action, arresting several individuals, and ensuring a thorough investigation.
