Feel the love. “Muslim woman attacked for travelling with Hindu man,” by R. Vasudevan for the Asian Tribune, November 10 (thanks to Block Ness):
In a fresh vigilante group attack, a Muslim woman was assaulted at Karmar in Bajpe, near Mangalore, allegedly by a fringe mob.
Deeba Algani, , 23, was attacked because she was travelling in a car with a person from another community. Her mother, Zubeida, is an independent member of the Padubidri gram panchayat. Deeba, who was admitted to Government Wenlock Hospital, said she was beaten up by a mob of 20 persons on Wednesday night.
“The mob waylaid our car, pushed us out and assaulted us. They asked me why I was travelling with a Hindu. I heard the miscreants talking over phone in the Beary language and referring to KFD (Karnataka Forum for Dignity). I can identify those who assaulted us,” she added.
Her mother, Zubeida alleged that the group snatched her cellphone and robbed her of Rs 3.07 lakh. “I had taken a house on lease at Bajpe from realtor Dharma a week ago. I had given my daughter Rs 3 lakh to pay Dharma. Deeba had another Rs 7,000 in her purse,” she said.
“We were in Mangalore city to purchase home appliances for our new house. Since there were a lot of appliances in my car, I asked Deeba to return with Dharma in his car. Both cars started together, but our car moved ahead. Miscreants waylaid their car and attacked them,” Zubeida said….
