Protest lodged with India over targeting of Muslims in India’s Assam state

ISLAMABAD: The For­eign Office on Friday summoned the Indian Charge d’ Affaires and conveyed Pakistan government’s grave concern over the recent targeting of Muslims in India’s State of Assam, where a brutal eviction drive against the Muslim residents has been launched.

The Indian authorities came under fire on Twitter after a video circulating on social media showed the police opening fire on locals in Assam before a cameraperson pounced on one of the men who had fallen motionless on the ground as a result of the attack.

The video shows policemen firing blindly at unseen targets behind a mass of trees. As a man comes rushing towards them, they round him, attacking him with rods and sticks. As the man collapses to the ground — apparently due to a gunshot — and is lying motionless, a cameraperson runs towards him and repeatedly kicks him and jumps on him.

At least, two people were reported dead in the incident that took place in the Sipajhar area of Assam’s Darrang district, where most residents are Muslims of Bangla origin.
