A Muslim labourer from West Bengal was assaulted by youth on a train when he failed to name the prime minister of India and chief minister of West Bengal state, a media report said today.

The Muslim labourer identified as Jamal Momin from Malda’s Kaliachak, was travelling back home in a general compartment of the Howrah-Malda Fast Passenger.

A video of the incident that happened on May 14 has gone viral on social media.

According to a report in Ananda Bazar Patrika, the youth had put the questions to the labourer in an attempt to dislodge him from his seat.

His “ignorance” got compounded when the man revealed that he offered namaz every day.

The report said Momin had no reprieve even when he pleaded with the youth that he had little education. The questions flew thick and fast: “Who is the Prime Minister of India? Who is the chief minister of Bengal? What is our national anthem?
