Talib Hussain, the social activist is back in the news, but not because he’s fighting for the Kathua gangrape-murder victim or for their families but because he has a case filed against him for rape and keeping a weapon.
He was arrested in Kashmir at the Samba district, said SHO Samba Chanchal Singh.
According to a report by Outlook India, a complaint was filed against the Gujjar activist on Tuesday by a woman, his relative who said that she was raped by him a month and a half ago in Chadwa forest.
Hussain stopped the woman on the way and threatened her with a knife when she was in the forest to graze her cattle and also thrashed her.
She said she had no option but to remain silent because he threatened to kill her. The first person she told this to was her husband and later they filed a complain together for the same.
This entire incident came after a month later when Hussain’s estranged wife got an FIR registered, accusing him of domestic violence, demanding dowry and attempting to kill her. He was granted anticipatory bail by the Jammu and Kashmir High Court in the case.
Reacting to the FIR lodged by his wife, he said it was an act to defame him because he raised his voice in seeking justice for the Kathua rape and murder victim.
It is so disheartening that someone who supported someone in the same incident is actually doing it to others because they were just showing it off. People do whatever it takes them to gain publicity and come in front of the media because fame is all they want. It is a new religion for people like Hussain and a getaway for all their wrongdoings. Because at the end of the day, he will say he supported the Kathua rape case and all of this is to only bring him down. It is important for us to know who is genuinely trying to help us and lead us into seeking justice and who is just doing it for the sake of it because they are gaining something from this.
