Two men in India beheaded a 47-year-old local resident Kanhaiya Lal for "insulting Islam" and posted a video of the brutal murder on the Internet, Hindustan Times reported.

The incident took place on 28 June, 2022 in Udaipur, Rajasthan. On the eve of the incident, an Indian working as a tailor had posted a message on social media in support of suspended Bharatiya Janata Party member Nupur Sharma. The politician was fired after making derogatory comments about the Prophet Muhammad during a televised debate.

A few days after the post was published, 38-year-old Bhilwara resident Riyaz Attari and 39-year-old Udaipur resident Ghous Mohammed attacked the man and cut off his head. The radicals then circulated a video of the killing on WhatsApp.

The day after the beheading, Nupur Sharma said he had received threats that he and his family would suffer the same fate as the tailor Kanhaiyu Lal.

The suspects have now been apprehended. Law enforcement authorities in India are checking to see if the killers are affiliated with international terrorist organizations.
