Bengaluru hanuman chalisa: Bengaluru Hanuman Chalisa viral video: Mobile shop owner beaten for playing ‘loud music during Azaan’

In a recent incident in Bengaluru, a shop owner faced an alleged assault for playing Hanuman Chalisa on speakers inside his mobile phone store located in the central Bengaluru neighborhood of Nagarthpet. The episode unfolded on Sunday, with the victim, Mukesh G Singh, accusing a group of men of attacking him under the pretext of disturbing prayers in a nearby mosque with what they deemed as “loud music”, a TOI report stated. The video of the incident has gone viral on social media.

According to the complaint lodged by Mukesh, three suspects identified as Suleman Pasha, Shenavaz M, and Rohit Kumar, all residents of Cubbonpet, were apprehended by the police. They now face charges of attempted murder. Two other individuals involved, Danish and Tarun, remain at large as per the First Information Report (FIR).

The altercation initiated around 6.30 pm when six individuals entered Mukesh’s store and demanded the cessation of music playing from speakers near the entrance. “It’s time for azaan and your music is disturbing us,” Mukesh quoted the accused as stating. Mukesh clarified that the “loud music” they objected to was, in fact, a devotional hymn. However, this explanation reportedly led to verbal abuse and physical assault. Mukesh provided CCTV footage to the police as evidence of the incident.

An investigating police officer disclosed that they are probing allegations suggesting that the claim of “disturbance to prayers” was a pretext to initiate a confrontation.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) attributed such incidents to the “appeasement politics” of the Congress government.

The accused have been taken into custody, and investigations into the matter are ongoing to ascertain the details surrounding the altercation.
