Honorable - Prime Minster Shri Modi Ji
W must call a spade a spade
As murders by ‘Gau Rakshaks’ rise, it is time to stop cloaking these terrifying incidents in euphemisms such as manhandling
End the euphemisms. Call it by its name-Murder. Not manhandling. Not vigilantism. And stop saying, ‘Gau Rakshaks, ‘please. The men who dragged Pehlu Khan out of his vehicle on the Alwar highway in Rajasthan, flung him on the roadside and lynched him so brutally that he died four days later, are not ‘protectors’, self-appointed or otherwise; they are not even ordinary criminals. They are thugs, who driven by blind religious prejudice, and emboldened by an environment that will justify the perpetrator instead of standing with the victim, brazenly killed an innocent man.
Such actions are given by euphoria of extreme aliments of rightist politics. Indirectly driven by State politics and the supported by the Central Govt. A serious mater needs to be tackled firmly and diligently.
WE THE PEOPLE OF INDIA IT IS TIME TO PONDER.
