Muslim taxi driver killed in UttarPradesh, forced to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’ » Kashmir Media Service

New Delhi, September 09 (KMS): In India a Muslim cab driver from Delhi was killed by Hindu extremists while coming home after dropping a passenger in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr.

His family said that he was made to chant “Jai Shri Ram” before he was killed.

The taxi was found by a police patrol in Greater Noida’s Badalpur, 57 km from Delhi.

After dropping a passenger in Bulandshahr, Mr Amal picked up three people in the return leg. At some point during the drive, Mr Amal called home using his mobile phone, his son Sabir said.

Sabir said he felt something was wrong and so he decided to record the call.

“Papa must have felt these people were not good, so he rang me and kept his phone aside in the car, with the call still active. Then I started recording. 7-8 minutes into the call they are heard telling papa to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’, which he did… They made him stop the car, then killed him. They did not loot him. There is not a scratch in the car. The wallet was not stolen,” Sabir said.

“The entire audio clip is 40 minutes long. After saying ‘Jai Shri Ram’, the people in the cab spoke for some time and the conversation seemed to be going well. They sounded like they were having fun and laughing among themselves,” Mr Chandra said.

No one has been arrested as yet.
