A Muslim man in Ujjain district of Madhya Pradesh was forced to chant the slogan 'Jai Shri Ram' by a group of men, on Saturday.

A video, which has now gone viral, showed the men accosting the victim and asking him to chant the religious slogan. The men asked him what is the issue in chanting the slogan. The Muslim man initially refused to do so, but is later seen doing it, saying, "Chalo theek hai, Jai Shri Ram."

The Muslim man, reportedly a scrap dealer, is also heard asking them if they are happy with him chanting it.

A police complaint has been lodged and two people have been arrested in connection with the incident. 

"The police will take a tough stand in the matter so that a message goes out in the society that such incidents will not be tolerated," NDTV quoted a police officer as saying.
