ISLAMABAD: Pakistani model and film actress Humaima Malick on Thursday slammed India for banning the minority Muslim community from eating beef in several states.
Her reaction came a day after Indian media reported that two Muslim women were beaten up by Hindu volunteers over suspicions that they were carrying cow meat.
A purported video of the incident showed the police standing by as a group of women, reportedly belonging to a right-wing group, assault the two victims — identified as Salma Ismail Mewati, 30, and Shameem Akhtar Hussain, 35, both residents of Khanpura locality of Mandsaur town — in the presence of some male activists. No action has been taken against any of the attackers.
