BROOKLYN (WABC) — Was it a hate crime or something else?

That’s the question surrounding the savage beating of a Brooklyn man in broad daylight this weekend.

“They used the bad word. ‘The mother bleeping Muslim, go back to you[r] country.’ They started beating him and after that he don’t know what happened,” the victim’s nephew Abul Kashem said.

Kamal Uddin is in and out of consciousness at Brookdale Hospital after being savagely attacked by four young men.

It didn’t happen under the guise of nightfall or in a secluded area.

He was beaten to a pulp at 3:00 Saturday afternoon on the sidewalk at the corner of Barbey and Worthman in East New York.

Why?

His family says because he’s a Muslim from Bangladesh.

“He has the money. He has the wallet. He was the watch and the cell phone. Nothing taken. Everything is there with him. It seems to me it’s a hate crime,” the victim’s uncle Mohammed Abul Hashem said.

“He can’t even talk,” his daughter, Rohima Begum, said. “He said yesterday four kids hit him. They attacked him from the back. He can’t talk. He’s very scared. Very scared.”

The faithful father and devoted husband has internal bleeding and extensive bruises to his face, and arms.

Uddin was doing construction work and decided to walk to the store to grab a bite to eat.

On his way, he was confronted by the group of men.

But detectives claim an eyewitness says he did not hear racial charged language. So at this point, they’re not treating this as a bias crime.

His family believes in their hearts that this was a hate crime.

“We are born in Bangladesh but we are in America now. We are American. So we want to see that the law do equal justice,” Hashem said?
