Youth attacked for posting pictures of having beef

Muslim man on Thursday night was allegedly attacked by a group of people at a village in Tamil Nadu for uploading a picture of himself consuming beef soup, police said. Four people have been arrested in the matter, police added. Mohammed Faizan, aged 24, of Poravachery had posted the picture on Facebook on Thursday. “Whatever you say, beef is the best,” Faizan wrote with pictures of beef soup on his Facebook page at 3.19 pm on Thursday, unaware of the repercussions that he would face for the innocuous comment and post. Four hours later, the youth had to be admitted to the district headquarters hospital in Nagapattinam after he was attacked by four youth. The accused group of people objected to the post and went to Faizan's house on Thursday night and questioned him. After a quarrel, they attacked him, police said. Faizan was injured and admitted to the government hospital.
