Two South Korean Students heckled by mobs at Meerut University, accuses them of conversion

Two South Korean students were forced to leave Meerut's Chaudhary Charan Singh (CCS) university after a mob heckled them and accused them of allegedly being Christian missionaries. The Korean students had come to visit the varsity on the suggestion of an Indian friend when a group of youths surrounded them. 

In a purported 33-second video of the incident, which was shared on social media, a person who appears to be leading the mob can be heard saying, “Who is with you… what is the purpose of your visit… there is only one god ‘Ram’, others do not exist. These are Christian missionaries, who want to come here. This is wrong… Jai Shree Ram,” as reported by Indian Express. One of the girls tries to stop them and speaks in Hindi.

Meanwhile, Meerut police has said that they did not let thing increase and got the matter under control immediately. They also issued a clarification on their Twitter page, denying allegations of any religious conversion. “Some foreign girls had come to visit the university. Some youths deliberately asked them about their religion and made a video. Some people wrongly spread this video that they are propagating religion. This is totally wrong,” it said.

CCS University registrar Dhirendra kumar, “We have not received any complaint in this case. If any student or union files a complaint in this regard, then we will respond to that. It is not yet known that who are those students or outsiders. If police ask us anything during investigation, we will reply.”

“We are in the process of identifying the accused on the basis of the viral video, media reports etc. An FIR will be registered against the accused by today. Relevant sections of the IPC for misbehaviour, abuse and hurting religious sentiments will be included,” Meerut’s CO (Civil lines) Arvind Kumar.
