Muslim Girl Harassed For Hanging With Hindu Friend

From India-Times:
In a shocking incident reported from the outskirts of Mangaluru, a Muslim girl was harassed by boys of her own community for visiting a hanging bridge at Mullarapatna with her friend, a girl, who belongs to another community.

Sources say that the college-going girl had come to Kuppepadavu to meet her friend. The hanging bridge has become a picnic spot with people visiting the place and taking selfies.

The two girls had visited the bridge and they happened to meet a group of Hindu boys who were probably their classmates. This did not go down well with a group of youth from the Muslim community. They attacked the boys for hanging out with the Muslim girl. In the meantime, another group of Muslim boys is said to have come to the rescue of the girls.

It is learnt that the entire episode was recorded on a mobile phone by members of the group. They even called the girl’s father and warned him not to allow his daughter to roam with girls or youth from other communities. The police arrived at the scene and had to resort to lathi charge to disperse the crowd.

To make matters worse, the father is said to have beaten the girl on reaching the spot.

The girl then went home with her father. Police sources said that the incident took place on Saturday and neither the victim nor her family have come forward with a complaint.

Condemning the incident, DYFI state president Muneer Katipalla said this is a shocking incident and that such incidents will only increase as election approaches.
“We expect the police to take stern action in such cases. We will soon be organising a walk against moral policing involving youth of all communities in Mangaluru City,” Katipalla said.
