ISLAMABAD - Yet another incident of mob attack came to light in India after a video went viral showing a group of men beating up four Muslim workers for allegedly eating beef.
According to *Gulf News* link, in the video, which was recorded in Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly city, the four workers could be seen cowering as a group of men beat them with belts and shoes.
The mob also hurled abuses at the group, asking them what they were eating.
One of the workers could be heard apologising with his hands folded and saying that the meat they were eating was of a buffalo. According to reports, the men were sitting near a place of worship.
“Four unidentified labourers had been hired for construction work at a residence. During lunch break, they had gone to a nearby *devasthan* (a miniature shrine with idols of gods usually near shady trees) to have a meal sitting under the tree,” police officer Dhananjay Singh was quoted as saying.
