Muslim Auto-driver assaulted and abused

A Muslim Auto-driver was verbally abused and assaulted when he picked up passengers from Bandra and was heading towards Ghatkopar. Near the Ghatkopar bridge they troubled Azhar by criss-crossing with their vehicles and when he objected, they cursed his family and told him to leave India. He was told to leave as he now had no role since 'they' had already taken Kashmir. His beard was pulled and he was hit. Bystanders only recorded the incident and no one came forward to help.
