Narrating his plight, Satakat shared the incident, “I was returning after giving Namaz Around 5:30 p.m. I went for a walk with a guy named Kaif. At the cow sanctuary (nearby), two men on a motorcycle called me out and asked me to stop. They teased me about my religious identity, but I didn’t stop because I thought they were teasing me.”
