“I believe mob lynching incidents could stop if the message is clear from the leaders of BJP, RSS, and VHP,” said Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot
Jaipur: On Sunday Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said the entire nation is worried about the rise in cases of mob lynching on suspicion of cattle theft and asserted that such incidents should not happen.
Answering to a question on mob lynching at an event at Hingonia cow shelter here, Gehlot said, “Cow is like a mother. Every Hindu considers it as a mother. It is our duty to respect the feelings but religion will neither accept nor teach taking someone’s life on the basis of suspicion.”
Gehlot also said, “An environment of fear, distrust, and violence has developed in the country due to which mob lynching incidents are rising. The entire country is worried about it.”
CM Ashok Gehlot added such incidents should stop and that the state government would make all efforts to curb them. He said BJP leaders have a duty to give such a message just like Prime Minister Narendra Modi had once said that people engaging in such activities are anti-social elements.
“I believe mob lynching incidents could stop if the message is clear from the leaders of BJP, RSS, and VHP,” said Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot.
Gehlot said that in Hingonia Gaushala, he has done historical work to protect cow and its enrichment, and has taken up the task of expanding it. I believe that cows should be protected, but to kill someone by being a fake cow devotee, it will not be accepted at any cost to the current Rajasthan government.
India has seen several cases of mob lynching from the past two to three years and many minority communities have faced movement. So its a clear message to central government to act on these incidents.
