Over the past couple of years, multiple incidents of ‘moral policing’ have been reported across India. Whether it was the Kolkata metro episode where a couple was beaten up by elderly men for “standing close to each other” or when a woman in Assam was assaulted by a group of men when she was accompanying a male friend. Yet again, an incident has come to light where Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) workers allegedly beat up two Muslim youths after they spotted them with a Hindu girl.

The incident took place in the premises of the Garjiya temple at Ramnagar town, Uttarakhand. However, matters escalated when some VHP workers shut the main gate of the temple to prevent people from entering. When they were questioned by sub-inspector Gagan Deep, they informed that the couples visiting the area were indulging in unethical behaviour and hurting religious sentiments. To prove their point, they went to the Kosi river where they spotted a Hindu girl with the two Muslim youth and started beating the boys.

However, a Sikh cop soon came to their rescue. He not only stopped the violence, but also prevented the workers from attacking the youth. A video of the incident was posted on social media and since then, it has created quite a buzz.
