“Main musalman hun, ye mera gunah hai?” asks Ranchi cop after facing communal remarks

Ranchi: In an incident that reminds of an instance from the Bollywood blockbuster ‘Sarfarosh’, police in-charge Aabid Khan at Doranda station in Ranchi confronted a crowd for allegedly making communal comments directed at him.

The movie showed Aamir’s character, a cop, stating that he doesn’t need any ‘Saleem’ to save his country. Saleem, the character, who is also a cop and belongs to Muslim community, slams Aamir’s character, thereby setting his record straight with him.

In the current scenario, Khan who is looking into the murder case of cleaning supervisor at the Doranda station, had to face resentment from the protesting crowd, all of whom purportedly touched a raw nerve with their communal comments.

As per reports, the crowd, during their three-hour tussle with the police, barged into Khan’s chamber and lambasted him for the murder.

Following his repeated attempt at pacifying the crowd, Khan, in an emotional outburst shouted at them.

One of the videos from the incident shows Khan saying, “Am I not a citizen of this country?”

He challenged the crowd, to prove that he is a dishonest cop, and summoned any individual who believed the same.

However, when DB Post contacted the Doranda police station, a police staff claimed that the situation has been handled with due dilligence and there is no discord between the force and the protestors.

According to reports, Khan, later, took it upon himself and addressed the protestors, thereby bringing the situation under control.
