In a harrowing incident, a group of men heckled a Muslim family and forcibly threw colours at them ahead of Holi celebration in Dhampur city of Bijnor district in Uttar Pradesh. While it remained unclear when the incident happened, a video of the incident has been doing rounds on social media, with people demanding action against the perpetrators.

In the video, the men can been seen surrounding the Muslim family that included two women and a man on their way on a bike. The men forcibly coloured them and threw water at them under the pretext of playing Holi. The family, visibly uncomfortable with the act, is seen resisting by hiding their faces and saving themselves. However, when they question the men for colouring them, the group raised religious slogans including 'Har Har Mahadev' and 'Jai Shri Ram'.
