“They tied me down and assaulted me,” said Gharib. “They tried to cut off my hand for reaching for one of them,” he added.
They were unable to cut off his hand, however, as passersby intervened to stop the fight. But Gharib sustained deep cuts.
Gharib’s brother, who had reached the shop later, angered with what had happened to his brother insulted the men so the “Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice” group ordered the cutting of the young man’s tongue as they claimed that he cursed Islam.
