NEW DELHI – In another gruesome incident in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, a group of Hindu extremists lynched a senior citizen and forced him to shave his beard and chant Hindu slogans.

Reports cited that the man who is identified as Abdul Samad Saifi, 72, was allegedly attacked by at least two people and forced to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’ on June 05.

The elderly victim confirmed that there were at least five attackers, adding that they put a gun to his head, threatening to kill him. The attackers told Saifi that they had killed many Muslims before, he alleged.

In the heart-wrenching footage of the incident that has gone viral on social media, at least two men can be seen attacking him with wooden sticks and then taking scissors to his beard and crudely cutting it off as the old man tries but fails to resist.
