Another day, another video, another mob attack and another viral post. Our brains have gone to the dogs and we have submitted to fear. It seems hate is the only language in which we are willing to converse. Mob attack has become a way of life.
This video shows strangers harassing and beating up a couple. Why?
Because the girl who was hanging out with a Muslim boy was a Hindu.
But what’s surprising is where are these mobs when someone – man or a woman – is being sexually harassed, abused and assaulted? Where are these mobs when a mentally-challenged woman is being raped in broad daylight? Where are they, when men unzip their pants in local trains and start masterbating in front of woman? Where are they, when a father is burnt alive after he protested his daughter’s sexual harassment? God, where are these so-called ‘Anti-Romeo Squads’ when girls are actually harassed in the streets?
The video has been posted with this caption –
“I hope God does not give these children to anyone. These girls take advantage of their parents’ facilities and roam about like this.”
“These Hindu girls are not worth getting an education especially when they leave their houses and tell others that call my father, he knows I love a muslim boy. This shamelessness is the result of the freedom she gets from her family. ”
“The ‘Mullah’ is silent seeing the situation; only our blood is boiling. They neither have shame nor fear. Catch these Jihadis around you. NIA can’t keep catching everyone.”

The post proudly encouraged people to beat up this couple. Even the comments were full of hatred for the girl and the boy; some going as far as asking people to burn this couple alive.
