There are four to five individuals that are brutally beating a person. Police can be seen in the video. But it seems that the situation was out of hand and the police were unable to handle it. Also, it can be seen that people are using shoes and a chair to beat a person.
Finally, some rangers intervened and controlled the whole situation. They pushed the beaters aside and probably saved the person who was being beaten.
Ramadan is a month that teaches tolerance, patience and love. It teaches us empathy, to understand the pain of others and realize how poor people survive with lack of food and basic necessities. We are not asked to fast so that we make each other’s lives miserable.
Also, we all want to rush to our homes as Iftaar time nears, but we need to understand there is nothing more important than our own safety. We must drive carefully and if unfortunately, an incident occurs, nothing can take it back. If we let our anger blur our judgement then it will just aggravate such situations. Let us be polite, humble and forgiving in the toughest of situations.
