For disobeying Ramadan customs, a 90 year-old man was brutally beaten by Police in Pakistan

The 90 year-old man was brutally beaten up by the police for eating during the fasting month

  • 90 year-old Hindu man was brutally beaten up for eating an hour before Muslims break their fast in Ramadan
  • A GoFundMe campaign was launched online to help fund the man’s medical care

In Pakistan, the minorities are wary of their safety, especially in the month of Ramadan because of the notorious ways employed by the government and police forces to forcefully enforce compliance with religious traditions associated with Islam. A similar situation unraveled on Saturday, June 11, where an old man was brutally beaten up by security forces.

90 year-old Chacha Gokal Das living in the Sindh region of Pakistan was found consuming rice at 6.30 PM outside his house, which is forty minutes before Muslims break their fast at sundown. Locals immediately summoned the authorities to have him arrested for disobeying Muslim traditions.

Ramadan is the holy month of praying and fasting for Muslims. The 90 year-old man was brutally beaten up by the police for eating during the fasting month, an event which has caused widespread outrage on Twitter. The picture of the injured man showing his bleeding hands went viral on Twitter. A campaign, called GoFundMe to help fund his medical fees was also launched owing to the fact that he was greatly stricken with poverty. These attacks come in the midst of ongoing attacks on a government licensed Hindu owned liquor store in Pakistan. Two Hindu priests were also hacked to death in two separate locations in Bangladesh, both during the month of Ramadan.

Minority groups and human rights organisations have expressed outrage all over social media platforms and appealed to the Government for the arrests of the accused, but haven’t received any reply.

Pakistan has a population which is 97% Muslim, which is why strict Islamic laws are observed, and any individual failing to comply with these laws are often subjected to extreme cases of violence. the minority non-sunni Muslims, Sikhs, Christians and Ahmadiyyas fall under the minority quota, and are more prone to attacks.
