Junaid lynching: Little-known portal comes to Jamaat mosque to get quotes; response is shocking

A reporter of a little known newly floated portal was seen hanging around Jamaat-e-Islami (Hind) office on Thursday afternoon to get feedback from devotees on Hafiz Junaid lynching, according to sources.

An eyewitness said the youth in beard was seen standing outside the mosque with another colleague who was with a camera, pleading mostly members of JEH to come on the camera and speak on Junaid lynching. Hafiz was stabbed to death on a train a few days before Eid.

“The response was shocking as nobody entertained him. I was unable to understand the reason. It is the place where from time to time, reporters of leading news channels arrive to take feedback and people are not only happy but feel proud to give their quotes. Had the poor boy been from some reputed channels the response would have been different,” said Qamar Ashraf.

After failing to get anybody on the camera, the reporter appeared to be dejected. It was then that somebody suggested him to meet some local leaders who would be more than happy to give quotes, said the source, adding that what happened after that was not known.

On asking, it was known that the portal has its office in Lakshmi Nagar, said the source. Okhla being known as Muslim intellectual hub, TV channels and reporters usually visit this locality to get feedback from the residents on burning issues.

Moreover, was in Okhla where many residents during Eid had put black bands on their arms while offering namaz.

  1. Very Sorry to know.
    “Nations will call each other, as people make invitations to a meal, to make a concerted attack on you. Someone asked: ‘Will this happen because of our being small in number?’ God’s Messenger answered: ‘Rather, you will then be great in number, but as powerless as woodchips or straw carried in a flood. God will remove fear of you from the hearts of your enemies and implant in you fear of death and love of the world.”
