Muslim man reportedly hacked to death for marrying outside of Islam

Islamic law forbids non-Muslim men to marry Muslim women, a murder in South India on Saturday should serve as a reminder to the serious nature of this law.

The Asian Age reports that a 24-year-old man was “hacked to death allegedly by the brother of a Muslim girl and his associates for marrying her.”

The Indian man, named Ramesh, a goods carrier operator based in Edalakudy (southern tip of India), had married the girl belonging to Idalakudi some months ago though her family had opposed it, police said.

On June 14, two people had stopped Ramesh’s vehicle, a seven-member gang (including the brother of his wife) attacked him with iron rods, police detailed. Ramesh died on Sunday, June 17 from the injuries.

Reports of protests then developed into violence as the news of his death spread. One group indulged in stone pelting in some localities in the area while some people blocked traffic to protest the violence. Police rushed to the spot and dispersed both the groups.
