Lynching has become very common in India and no actions have been taken against the culprits. Many lynching cases have gone unnoticed or unidentified. Approximately 38 cases of Muslim lynching have been identified since 2015-2018.Apparently, in the year 2018 thirteen Muslim mob lynching cases have taken place and the numbers are just increasing with time.
A known Journalist unveiled the truth behind the Mob Lynching that has taken place in the name of religion. Bajrang Dal, members of RSS group who claims to be the guardians of their religion (Hinduism). They started a movement with the name “Gau Raksha” (Cow Protection Movement). Their motive behind this movement was to protect cows as they consider it to be sacred. After an investigation carried out by the Journalist, a new level of hypocrisy was seen by these Gau Rakshaks.
These members of RSS allow the trading of Cows after extortion and practice the killing of cow traders, consumers of beef, just to maintain an image of ‘Gau Rakshak’ and to threaten people. The story does not end there; these protectors of cows allow the transport of trucks only when the traders agree to give them the skin of these cows. They sell the skin of their sacred animal for money. What a sheer level of hypocrisy that is!
Just because of these Hypocrites who claim to be working for their religion, many innocent lives were lost. A lot of people suffered and are still suffering because of such people in the nation.
