Muslim man faces community boycott for ‘Jai Shri Ram’ chant | India News

MEERUT: Farmer Ehesan Rao, 22, lived an uneventful life in Deoband, until December 2 when he attended a joint rally by CM Yogi Adityanath and Union home minister Amit Shah. That day he clambered on the barricades and started chanting “Bharat Mata Ki Jai” and “Jai Shri Ram”. After a video of Ehesan in a skull cap went viral on social media, it became difficult for him to leave his house.
Ehesan said, “I was overwhelmed by the charged atmosphere during the rally and I, too, chanted ‘Jai Shri Ram’. I didn’t notice that someone was recording it.”
His childhood friend was the first to call him saying all ties between them stand severed. Later, Ehesan’s uncles and cousins also boycotted him. Soon, Ehesan started getting threat calls accusing him of being un-Islamic.
Saharanpur SSP Akash Tomar told TOI that a gunner was deployed last week for Ehesan’s security after the latter claimed there was a threat to his life.
