When Shaqir reached Ballabhgarh station, he too was dragged in and stabbed. His father Jalaluddin says, “The man who helped kill my son is now roaming free. He got bail in a month. We are scared.”

“He held me and my brothers and dragged us towards the man who was going to stab us. How is he any less guilty than the main culprit?” asks Shaqir Khan, 23, brother of 15-year-old Junaid, who was stabbed to death over a month ago. News of one of the accused, Chander Parkash, being granted bail three days ago by a Faridabad court has left him disappointed and angry.

When Shaqir reached Ballabhgarh station, he too was dragged in and stabbed. His father Jalaluddin says, “The man who helped kill my son is now roaming free. He got bail in a month. We are scared.”

He adds, “When PM Modi gave that speech, we were hopeful of getting justice but not anymore. We have lost faith in the government. Today, they’ve granted him bail, tomorrow they will say Junaid has no stab wounds. Kuch bhi kar sakte hai, inki niyat mein hi khot hai.”

Hearing the news of the bail, well-wishers and neighbours have returned to their house to console the Khan family and show solidarity. “This feels like defeat. All we want is justice. We are all citizens of the country, but as Muslims, we feel like we have to prove ourselves,” says a neighbour.

    मैमने को देखकर भेटिये के मूहं में पानी आगया, मन ही मन सोचा आज तो पेट भर खाने का बंदोबस्त होगया। मेमने को न्यायपूर्ण मारने का बहाना सोचने लगा, काफी सोच-विचार के बाद भी उसे मारखानेे का कोई तर्कसंगत कारण सुझाई ना दिया तो, खाना पूरती के लिए मैमने को डांटते हुए बोला,, क्यों बे बकरी के बचचे तेरी यह हिम्मत कि तू मेरा पानी झूठा कर रहा है,, मैमना सकपकाते हुए,,,,,, हुजूर मेरी क्या आैकात जो मैं आपका पानी झूठा करूँ, मैं तो स्वयं आपका झूठा पानी पी रहा हूँ,, बात ी थी, मैमना नदी पर नीचे की ओर खडा़ था जबकि भेड़िया ऊपरी तरफ जहां से पानी नीचे की ओर बह रहा था। भेड़िया था तो जात का भेड़िया ही किन्तु धर्मात्मा भी बना रहना चाहता था और हाथ आय डिनर को खोने का जोखिम भी उठाने के मूड में नहीं था। मैमने पर दूसरा केस लगाते हुए गरजा,, क्यों बे तू ने मुझे गाली क्यों दी थी,, हुजूर मैने आपको गाली कब दी, मेरे लिए तो ऐसा सोचना भी पाप है। पिछले साल इनहीं दिनों में दीथी तू ने गाली, में भू

      हुजूर मैने आपको गाली कब दी, मेरे लिए तो ऐसा सोचना भी पाप है। पिछले साल इनहीं दिनों में दीथी तू ने गाली, में भूला नहीं हूं। ,, हुजूर को जरूर कोई गलतफहमी है, मेरी तो उम्र ही कुल पांच माह है, मैं भला साल भर पहले गाली कैसे दे सकता हूं,, भेड़िया अपना सयंम खोता जा रहा था, कोई बहाना काम नहीं आरहा था, लेकिन वह अन्याय कर खुद को बदनाम करना भी नहीं चाहता था। यह भय भी सताय जाता था कि न्याय प्रक्रिया के चलते कहीं शिकार ही ना हाथ से जाता रहे।उसने न्याय प्रणाली को तो रखा ताक पर आैर यह कहते हुए मैमने पर झपट पड़ा कि,, तूने नहीं तो तेरे बाप ने दी होगी गाली, सजा तो भुगतना पड़ेगी,, जरा के जरा में मैमने का काम तमाम करदिया।।।

        Totally biased Indian Express weeping for these criminals. Why not post the full details? It was Junaid and the team he called on to join them in one of the station stops who attacked the accused and another Hindu man first. They started the problem and were going to knife the accused. The accused has clearly said that if he had not attacked this violent fellow, he would have been killed by the aggressive Junaid and his brother and friends. Go do some work, you useless reporter. Read the police report and then write story. That's why the accused has got bail. Junaid was an aggressive madrasa fellow and so are his huge family of brothers. Never been to a proper school. Do you even know what is taught in madrasas?? They are isolated from the world outside, and men will not even look at a woman properly while talking. Like freaks. Only s will sympathise with these sort of people.
