After buying a apcket of Halwa and paratha for his children Mohammad Zubair was returning to his home, on his way he was accosted by a mob wielding wooden sticks and iron rods. He said he was beaten up viciously, even though he begged the men to stop, before the pain took over and he fell unconscious. He does not remember much about the attack, but the photograph brings up painful memories. “They beat me till they broke me. I begged them and they beat me some more, viciously. They made communally charged slurs and took (BJP leader) Kapil Mishra’s name. I don’t remember much. I just hoped my children were safe. I can’t bear to look at my photograph, my legs shiver with pain,” Zubair told The Indian Express. A father of two daughters, aged five and two, and a son aged four, Zubair feared for their safety and shifted them to his village in UP. Zubair works as a labourer and earns around Rs 15,000 a month.
