A spectra of mob violence in the name of saving cow has created an atmosphere of mistrust and insecurity among minority Muslim community in India ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Hindu right-wing Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) took over the reins of the country.
With lynching becoming the new normal in India, people have hit the streets and denounced the government’s “inability” or “lack of intent” to protect people from the minority community against violence unleashed by Hindutva outfits.
Families of lynching victims — from Alwar in Rajasthan to Dadari (Uttar Pradesh) and Mewat in Haryana to Assam in Northeast — have been living on the edge, under the shadow of constant fear of persecution. Poor Muslims and Dalits ( lower caste of India) are the worst sufferers of lynching and ‘mob justice’.
Hardline Hindutva outfits, mostly offshoots of the BJP and its ideological fountainhead Rashtriya Swaysevak Sangh (RSS), Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), Bajrang Dal , Cow Vigilant Groups etc seem to have taken the cudgel upon themselves to create fear psychosis among Muslims and Dalits and have often openly bragged about their ‘act of vengeance’.
Both Indian and international media have written about lynching and civil society members have come out in protest against dastardly acts of violence and appealed to the government seeking its intervention to stop the menace immediately.
