A shocking incident has emerged from Karnataka, where YouTuber Rohit Kumar faced brutal assault and coercion after sharing a composition applauding Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Rohit, a resident of Mellahalli village, recounted the harrowing experience, stating that he was attacked by a group of individuals while sharing the link to his song.

According to Rohit's account, he was forcibly taken into a room where he endured further brutality. He was coerced into shouting slogans in favour of Pakistan, an act entirely against his will. The assailants, in a display of utter disregard for humanity, also molested him, poured beer on him, burned his hands with cigarettes, and inflicted severe beatings.

Rohit, in disbelief and shock, recounted the distressing events. "Just last week, I uploaded a song praising PM Modi and was promoting my channel, urging everyone to subscribe. Suddenly, one person, who I later found out was Muslim, approached from the nearby government guest house," he narrated. "Without warning, they started hurling abuses at me for supporting Prime Minister Modi. Then, they forced me to chant 'Pakistan Zindabad' and violently snatched a picture of Lord Ram from my grasp, before subjecting me to further humiliation."

Addressing the issue, Mysuru Police Commissioner Ramesh B commented, "We are currently verifying the information. If Rohit files a complaint, we will promptly share updates.
