On a peaceful Friday afternoon, Jalaluddin’s life turned upside down. His vegetable business, which he had been running for years to support his family, was vandalized and burnt down by members of Bajrang Dal during a Ram Navami Shobha Yatra in Bihar Sharif, district Nalanda. The Hindutva extremists not only destroyed his shop but also looted his home, leaving him with nothing.
This is not an isolated incident but a part of a larger pattern of violence against Muslims in Bihar Sharif, Nalanda during the Ram Navami Shobha Yatra of March 31, 2023.
The rise of Hindutva extremism has led to an increase in hate crimes against the Muslim community, which results in the economic destruction of many Muslim-owned businesses.
Jalaluddin’s shop was not only a source of income but also a means of survival for his family. The loss of his shop has left him and his family in a precarious position, struggling to make ends meet.
We must come together as a community and support Jalaluddin and help him get back on his feet. Your contribution, no matter how small, will make a significant difference in his life.
