Bajrang Dal Member Threatens Biryani Shop Owner in Delhi
In this video of two minutes and 20 seconds, a man shouts and says-
Is this Jama Masjid? At whose behest did you open this? No one speaks? This is the area of Hindus, and they are opening it. Today is our Diwali. You people have come to spoil the faith. Are you giving them a discount? On this big Diwali, Muslims have opened their shop in the primary market of Sant Nagar of Burari. No area is Muslim area here. Total Hindus live here.
Using abusive language, the person further said, if I cut in front of the mosque on the day of Eid, would you like it? On this, the shopkeeper said that he was expanding the shop, that is, he was about to close it.
On this also the person started abusing dirty and said-
Stick to your rules. There will be fire here. At the same time, I told the people outside the shop that these were our Hindu brothers and sisters. Everyone is sleeping. Hey, wake up All these do love jihad with our sisters and daughters. They implicate our girls by changing their names.
Threatening further said that if you see the shop opening on some festival, remember…
At the end of this video where shopkeepers are seen shifting all their goods inside the shop. At the same time, the accused gives his name as Naresh Kumar Suryavanshi, Rashtriya Bajrang Dal.
According to the report of ‘Indian Express’, the name of the shopkeeper is Alam Moradabadi. He has a Biryani shop in Burari. He opened the shop on November 4, the day of Diwali. Then Naresh Kumar allegedly threatened the shopkeeper and the staff by coming and asking them to close the shop. After the video went viral, the police registered a case and started an investigation.
What does the shopkeeper say?
According to the report, 27-year-old Magrub Ali, also known as Alam, runs a biryani shop. He says that the people present in the market were supporting us. Still, we expanded our shop soon after the incident. We don’t know why he targeted us, but we think he just wanted to provoke and create fear.
He further said,
Seven people work in the shop. And they make their living by creating and selling biryani. And it is not that no one takes it from the shop. Most of the people passing in front of the shop pack a plate. It took a whole year to make this business stand up.
According to the report, all the workers in the shop are migrants who came to Delhi in search of work. Maghrib Ali learned to cook biryani eight years ago in a restaurant in Aligarh and now came to Delhi and opened his shop. He said that his family is a resident of Rampur in UP, who does farming. Here he is earning a living along with his elder brother Aijaz and others.
