South AsiaModi’s India: Foreign Students beaten up at Gujarat University for offering prayer

Five foreign students were beaten up for offering prayer – a religious obligation – in Gujarat University in India’s western Ahmedabad City, an evident of how Narendra Modi’s hardline policy has tarnished the Country’s so-called secularism and further fueled the religious extremism threatening the very existence of the societal norms.

The incident took place at Gujarat University wherein Muslim students from Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, South Africa, and Sri Lanka were offering prayer in their Hostel Rooms, and in the meantime, a mob of Jay Sri Ram-Chanting Modi supporters attacked and subjected them to torture.


The Indian media reported that the practice of offering Namaz within the Campus Premises sparked the clash. 

Students said that there is no mosque on the Ahmedabad-based Campus; therefore, they had gathered inside the Hostel to offer Taraweeh – a namaz offered at night during the Holy Month of Ramadan.

They alleged that a sticks and knives-wielding mob and shouting ‘Jai Sri Ram’ slogans stormed the Hostel, attacked them and vandalized their rooms.

“They attacked us inside the rooms too. They broke laptops, phones and damaged bikes,” a student from Afghanistan said according to NDTV.
