Man attackd over refusal to chant 'Jai Shri Ram'

A man was attacked as he was on his way home. Around 10 people surrounded him and questioned his identity.

Mohammed Javed Naseem tried resisting them but then they asked him to chant 'Jai Shri Ram' to which he vehemently refused. The mob got furious and became violent. He somehow managed to save himself and reach a safe spot. In a video recording, he claimed that people in the area only watched him get beaten and didn't come forward to help.
