The brutal incident caused rage and fury on Twitter with many people condemning the inhuman action the Muslim man had faced. This is not the first ruthless incident in India as some Indians have been provoking barbarous and merciless attacks on not just Muslim people but innocent animals too.
The silence of the Indian people on the massacre of humanity are proof that the people of India have lost their dignity, justice, modesty, courage, fortitude and morality.#الهند_تقتل_المسلمين pic.twitter.com/fGiYoIzFPn

Users on Twitter called the community in India racist, urging the world for immediate legal action towards these people.
“For them animal lives matter but Muslims are not even counted as human beings,” one of the people, named Farwa Munir, wrote on Twitter. “Listen Bollywood stop this hypocrisy!!! Muslims lives are equally precious, they have their rights to live.”
We have brothers. In India, they are being killed and displaced. We hope for your quick and urgent intervention to save them. 💔☹️ pic.twitter.com/lLJQoqdctR
