5 Hindu boys beaten up and heads shaved, allegedly for keeping beards: Bangladesh

Yet another assault on minority Hindus of Bangladesh has been reported. It is alleged that the heads of 5 Hindu boys were shaved as a punishment only because they had kept beards, which is ‘forbidden’ for Hindus.

As per reports, Islamist fanatics Siraj Mia, Ful Mia, Anar Mia, Shaheen & Ataur together beat up 5 Hindu boys & shaved their heads for having beards as Hindus. The incident took place at Rasulganj Bazar of Patli Union in Jagannathpur, Sunamganj, Bangladesh.

For orthodox Muslims, keeping a beard is considered Wajib (mandatory) for all men. To keep beard is considered a Sunnah (saying or action of Islam’s prophet Muhammad) and it is said that Mohammed and all his companions had kept a beard. As per Shahi Hadith (reliable collections of sayings and actions of Mohammed), he once said:

“Oppose the idolaters. Lengthen the beards and shorten the moustache.” (Sahih Bukhari: 5893)

There are rules on not shaving a beard, and even if a Muslim trims his beard he must maintain a minimum fist-length:

“However, none has consented to trimming it (beard) less than that (fist-length), as some westerners and hermaphrodites do. To shave the beard off completely is the practice of the Jews of India and the fire worshippers,” (Shaami, page 418, vol.2).

Hence, if keeping a beard is a must for Muslim men, Muslim radicals believe that non-Muslims should not be allowed to keep beards and ‘achieve parity’ with Muslims. In fact, non-Muslims are considered Dhimmis (second-class citizens) in Islamic countries run as per Sharia. A Dhimmi or “protected person” is expected to pay Jizya (tax levied on non-Muslim residents) and follow strict rules such as not practising their religion in public. Initially, only ‘People of the Book’ (Jews and Christians) were granted the right to live as Dhimmis in Muslim states. ‘Idolators and fire-worshippers’ like Hindus, Buddhists and Zoroastrians had only three options – convert, leave or die.

The police have reportedly taken Siraj, Anor, and Shyamal Mia into custody in the present case from Bangladesh. It is hoped that justice would be served.

It must be mentioned here that while the left-liberal cabal in Bharat keeps opposing humanitarian laws such as CAA that would help the numerous Hindu minorities from the neighbouring Islamic countries of Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan escape such terror as the boys were subjected to in this case, Hindus continue to face unspeakable horrors in the neighbouring Islamic nations only because they are Hindus.
