Actress Kangana Ranaut lashed out at the so-called ‘humanists’ for their silence over the murder of Kishan Bharwad, a 27-year-old man from Gujarat who was shot dead over a social media post on Muhammad, whom Muslims regard as a prophet. In a Facebook post, Ranaut said his murder was planned by a mosque and maulvi over FB post. She urged the government to take strong action against the accused.
She took to Facebook and said, “Kishan Bharwad murder was planned by a mosque and maulvi over a FB post because he thought God did not like his post. Killing in the name of God needs to stop, we are not living in some medieval age, and Govt needs to take strong action against such Killings. Kishan was hardly 27 years old and had a two months old daughter, he was asked to delete his post and apologise he did the same, yet he was brutally killed by four men, he is nothing short of a martyr. He died for everyone’s freedom, such people are the ones who are stopping this nation from becoming Afghanistan … his widow should get pension, Om Shanti”
Kangana Ranaut also shared stories on her Instagram account. She also shared a screenshot of author Anand Ranganathan’s post on the same issue. Ranaut said, “Unbelievable cruelty in the name of God!!! So God told them he was offended with Kishan’s FB post? Really!? Why worship such a God who gets offended by an FB post and does not even accept apology and regrets!! Shame!”
In another post, she questioned the silence of so-called ‘humanist’ in the murder of Kishan. She said, “No one with ‘Humanist’ in bio is condemning murder of Kishan. This proves Kishan was not human. Selective humanity of woke activists…”
After the arrest of the maulvi who was the mastermind of the murder, Kangana shared another story in which she wondered if we were still living in the medieval age. “What is this? A mosque and maulvi planning the murder of a man because he thinks God is offended by his post… are we living in medieval age?” she added.
Kishan Boliya, 27, was murdered on Tuesday (January 25) in Dhandhuka in Ahmedabad Rural, Gujarat. The VHP had called for a bandh in Ahmedabad on Thursday (January 27) to protest the murder and demand justice for Boliya. The Gujarat police had arrested Sabbir, Imtiyaz Pathan and Maulana Mohammad Ayub for the murder of Kishan Boliya.
The police investigation has revealed that Maulana Mohammad Ayub is the conspirator in the case and also arranged the weapon for murder. The police are still looking for another Mumbai based Maulana who is also involved in the murder plot.
Boliya had posted a Facebook post on January 6 which they alleged was blasphemous. A police case was also registered in the case. Sabbir and Imtiyaz, with the help of two Maulanas had started plotting the murder of Boliya.
“The deceased had posted a Facebook update on January 6, 2022, in which he had written objectionable comments against a religion. An FIR was lodged against Kishan then at the Dhandhuka police station after a complaint. After Kishan received bail, the duo (Sabbir and Imtiyaz) made up their mind to kill him and were provided with the gun and ammunition by the Maulana,” a senior police official at Ahmedabad Rural said.
