Gujarat public flogging: TMC files complaint with NHRC
cancel

New Delhi: The Trinamool Congress on Friday filed a complaint with the National Human Rights Commission in connection with the public flogging of Muslim men by the Gujarat Police personnel, party spokesperson Saket Gokhale said.

Gokhale remarked that it was "a matter of shame" that the NHRC hasn't taken suo moto cognizance of the matter.

"It is a matter of shame to see that the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) hasn't suo moto taken up the matter of Gujarat Police publicly flogging Muslim youth. But they shouldn't have the excuse of "no one complained". We All India Trinamool Congress filed a complaint with the NHRC today," Gokhale said in a tweet.

He also shared a copy of the complaint.

For the unversed, earlier this week, a few policemen publicly flogged some men who were part of a mob comprising members of the Muslim community who allegedly threw stones at a Garba event in Undhela village in Gujarat's Kheda district

Purported video clips of the incident showed three men arrested for stone-throwing being held against an electricity pole, one after the other, by a policeman and being flogged by another with a lathi.

In the complaint filed by Gokhale on behalf of his party, he said there have been several viral videos on social media showing a group of Muslim men being "tied" to a pole in Undhela village of Matar Taluka in Kheda district, Gujarat.

"The police claimed that this was "punishment" to the Muslim men who were accused of stone pelting. The police basically decided to act as jury and executioner and unleashed inhuman brutality on a group of young men purely because they were Muslim.

"This is a clear case of police brutality and atrocities against religious minorities ahead of the Gujarat Assembly Elections and may also be politically motivated," the complaint stated.

The Gujarat Police has ordered an inquiry into the public flogging incident.
