Hindu teen Sambhu Koiri stabbed to death in Assam

A minor Hindu teen, Sambhu Koiri (16), was brutally stabbed to death in Assam on Sunday, January 8, around 8 PM by a Muslim assailant. The murder took place in Lowairpoa town in Patharkandi subdivision of Karimganj district.

Locals organized massive protests and surrounded the Bazaricherra Police Station after the attack, demanding arrest of the culprits. Extra police force was deployed in the area to keep the situation under control. Section 144 has been imposed in parts of Karimganj district.

Indian Express reports that police have arrested one Animul Haque for the murder. However, Organiser has reported the murderer’s name as Selim Uddin, who attacked Sambhu from the back and stabbed him several times on the head, face and neck. After carrying out the attack, Selim Uddin fled but was later arrested, reports Organiser. The accused and Sambhu had scuffled over a local cricket match a few days back.

Sambhu, a Class X student, also volunteered for Bajrang Dal, the youth arm of Vishwa Hindu Parishad. He was returning home from a 3-day Bajrang Dal training camp in neighboring Hailakandi district when he was attacked. Based on this, almost all mainstream media reports have focused on his Bajrang Dal affiliation in their headlines and masked the fact that he was a minor, a teenager with his whole life in front of him.

When 16-year-old madrassa student Junaid Khan was killed after he & his brothers started a fight over seat-sharing on a passenger train in Haryana, media had highlighted Junaid’s name and his youthfulness in their headlines, and did not name any Islamic religious organization that he was affiliated with.

This is the naked double standard of India’s ‘mainstream’ English-language media: shame, guilt-trip and demonize the entire country and Hindu society if a Muslim gets killed, irrespective of context, and downplay murders or other crimes against Hindus. And if the Hindu victim is even remotely connected to the Sangh Parivar or any Hindutva outfit, subtly justify the attack like Rajdeep Sardesai did in 2015 after flower seller Prashant Poojary, who also happened to be a a Bajrang Dal volunteer, was brutally hacked to death in Moodbidri, Karnataka.

Muslims constitute the majority in Karimganj district, which borders Bangladesh and falls in Barak Valley region. They account for over 56% of total population as per Census 2011. 5 of the 8 assembly seats which fall in the Karimganj Lok Sabha seat have Muslims MLAs, 4 from the notorious Islamist AIUDF party led by Deobandi Maulana Badruddin Ajmal.

  1. “Bajrang Dal activist” is just Islamist code for “wajib ul qatl”. Meaning, “to all Muslims and Hindu leftist fools: this boy’s life was worthless, and we killed him which has no penalty.”

    You will see this tactic employed whenever a BD/RSS member is killed. It is as if under Indian Penal Code, there is a clause that says “it is OK to kill members of any Hindu organization.”

    Strangely, this is one sided logic. NEARLY ALL PROMINENT MUSLIMS ARE MEMBERS OR HEADS OF HARDCORE ISLAMIST ORGANIZATIONS. Yet, if any of them were to be killed, it would be seen as an attack on “India’s secular fabric.”
