In the time where people are giving their hundred percent to land on the moon
and be past of history, same time people are killing each other out of hatred
and in the name of god. I was'nt known to this word lynching but now its
the headline of every alternative month. Lynching in simple terminology is when
a group of people who condemn and punish a person without a fair trial.
People are killed over suspicion of killing cows and as the result people are
leaving their cows open on the road which results in crop destruction and
increase in road accidents. Pehlu Khan was killed over suspicion and they are
killed in the name of saving cows. People at least should have that much sense
that killing a human being won't do good to anybody.
On June 17, 24-year old Tabrez Ansari was returning home in the remote
Seraikela-Kharsawan district of Jharkhand when he was held by some people and
accused of stealing a motorbike. The mob started beating him and forced him to
chant Jai Shri Ram and Jai Hanuman.
After seven hours of inhuman
beating with sticks, the police took him away to lock up, recording his
confession for the theft but not mentioning the assault on him. On June 21,
he was admitted to hospital and later rushed to Jamshedpur where he died the
next day because of injuries. The horrendous incident came to light after a
video of the torture surfaced on social media.
I can't digest this incident where a human being is beating another human being
and making him chant Jai Shree Ram how can that be justify. Contrary to
that the accused are discharge of the murder charger in this matter. I want to
know what steps are taken into this matter beacuse this need to be stopped.
This was the 14th case of hate crime in Jharkhand in the past four years,
according to data collated from media reports by Factchecker, a website that is
tracking the horrendous trajectory of crimes based on religious hatred in India.
Between 2009 and 2013, the five-year period prior to Modi's victory in 2014, a
total of only 22 such cases were reported. That means there has been a ten-fold
rise in lynchings since the BJP came to power.
Hate campaign against minorities is one of the major concern and this give green
light to the people who pull of these lynchings. Higher authority should condemn
it and should set an example that no one in this will be killed on suspicion or
even if he has committed a crime the law will take it own course.
Prime Minister Modi had not said much on the violence in spite of the clear
danger it represents. In 2017 he said no one should take law into their hands
and in my opinion that our politicians will stop politics on religion and will
start focusing on development issues these incidents will decrease.
