21-year-old LLB student Yash Rastogi in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut has been brutally murdered by his gay Muslim friends. Police have arrested Salman, Shahvez, Ali, and Imran in the matter.
Yash was first murdered and then his body was cut into pieces and dumped into a sewer. Police recovered his body from Pilokhari drain in Lisadi Gate area of Meeurt on Saturday night. It is reported that the accused had sodomised the victim before murdering him.
One June 26 Yash, a resident of the Jagriti Vihar Sector 6 of the Medical police station area, left home on his scooty but never returned. Meerut police traced the last location recorded by his mobile phone, and based on the call detail records of his phone arrested Imran, Shahvez, Ali (aka Alijaan) and Salman. All of them were Yash’s friends.
According to Meerut city SP Vineet Bhatnagar, this was a group of gay friends. Yash was murdered by the accused allegedly because they suspected he was hiding a video of them on his phone.
His body was recovered late at night from the sewer under heavy police presence as authorities feared a mob could gather in the ‘sensitive’ area in support of the accused. Meerut city is around 40% Muslim. The post-mortem of the recovered dead body was conducted on Sunday and then last rites were performed at the Surajkund crematorium also under heavy police presence. Yash’s fellow students have demanded that the accused should be charged with the stringent National Security Act.
As per a police source, a cloth was stuffed in Yash’s mouth at the time of the murder. Officials said that two accused committed the murder, while the other two assisted in disposing of the body.
In 2018, Delhi-based Aam Aadmi Party worker, Naveen Das, was murdered by his gay partner Tayyab (25) and two accomplices. So even in the LGBTQ world, we see the same trend as observed in heterosexual society of Islamists targeting non-Muslims. Ironically, homosexual Muslims are lucky to live in a Hindu-majority country like Bharat which has far greater tolerance for this lifestyle compared to the Islamic world.
In Islamic countries like Afghanistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Pakistan, Sudan and UAE, homosexuality is a capital offense or invites strict punishment under sharia law. In other nations with Muslim majority like Qatar, Maldives, and Uzbekistan, homosexuality could land one a lifetime in prison. Islamic State terrorists kill homosexuals by throwing them off the roof of tall buildings, deriving sanction for this punishment from Islamic scriptures.
