As religious discrimination continues to grow within a secular country like India, another shocking incident resurfaced in this context last week. In Delhi metro, a group of youth not only denied a Muslim old man a seat but also abused him for the way he looked. This incident happened in the violet line of the Delhi metro.

The young men who refused to give a place to sit to this old man, for he was a Muslim; also asked him to go back to Pakistan if he wishes to get a seat in the coach. Notably, the old man barely got any support from his co-passengers. The incident was only intervened by the National Secretary of AICCTU Santosh Roy, who was also held by the collar and allegedly asked to go back to Pakistan as well.

Roy was harassed as he insisted the young men to apologise. The brawl came to an end when a guard entered the compartment at the Khan Market station. A complaint was filed at the Pandara Road police station where they were taken. However, a few days later, when Roy visited the police station he came to know that the elderly man had decided not to pursue the complaint.

The incident reportedly occurred last week on Delhi’s violet line and was shared on social media by Kavita Krishnan, Secretary of the All India Progressive Women’s Association.

“Two young men kept threatening ‘Hamare log aa rahe hain’ (Our supporters will come). The police offered to escort the elderly Muslim gentleman home, but he went home on his own,” read Kavita’s post.
