In one of the horrendous incidents, a navy veteran of 62-year-old was attacked and thrashed in Mumbai over Whatsapp forward.
Well, according to the sources, the Whatsapp forward was a satirical comic image of the Indian political party Shiv Sena’s leaders. The veteran is now released from the hospital after being treated for the wounds and injuries of the attack. Indian Ex-Navy officer’s son spoke to one of the Indian media houses and said that the situation at India’s Mumbai is worsening and raising a point of the question.
The son said, “The situation in Maharashtra is such that whosoever expresses their view, they are being threatened and beaten. They are beating 65-year old, they go and raze someone’s home, it’s like Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. I want to thank you the other Navy veterans and BJP leaders. If they would not raise their voice, they would have put my father in jail. Now they can threaten me and my family.”
The veteran, Madan Sharma received 10-15 calls after he shared the image and was thrashed by one of the people, as per Madan’s daughter. She also reiterated that the police came 1 hour later after the incident took place.
Well, with the alarming number of incidences, people of India’s Maharashtra have signaled towards President’s rule in the state as according to them, the state government is not able to tackle the situation. Also, many have termed it as the end of “democracy” where people are being attacked on a mere Whatsapp forward.
