Modi’s India ruled by communals?

This is what our government wanted to do through Beef ban, their vote bank politics may be due to elections in Bihar, neighbouring states like UP and Jharkhand will definitely have to bear the communal incidents. Sadhus beaten up in Banaras, Muslim beaten up in Dadri and Hindu-Muslim riots in Ranchi, this is all a planned conspiracy to polarize votes in Bihar. People should be careful. It is very shameful that some people are behaving like unjust manner and creating communal riots. A 50-year-old man was beaten to death by a mob in Dadri in UP over rumours in village that his family had eaten beef. India is moving towards civil war, and the credit goes to current Government’s counterparts Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP), Bajrang Dal and (RSS) like organizations. Mohammad Akhlaq, was beaten to death and his 22-year-old son was severely injured by residents of Bisara village, after rumors spread in the area about the family storing and consuming beef. After the outrage on social media the UP government announced Rs. 10 lakh compensation for the family of a dead person, but failed to promise strict action against culprits.

Family members are living in a small house, they actually don’t have any place to shelter or butcher cow or consume it. Story was cooked up to target them. Even after so much brutality neither the cops reached on time nor their neighbours came to their rescue. Akhlaq lived there with his 70-year-old mother and family. His elder son Sartaz works with the Indian Air Force and is currently posted in Chennai. Another son Danish, suffered serious injuries in the attack. Hundreds of people gathered in front of their house and started abusing them randomly; some even stone pelted and threatened entire family without confirming the fact. A heated argument followed for 10 minutes after which the agitators turned violent and broke open the main gate of Muslim man’s house. They misbehaved with his daughter-in-law and grand-daughter. They did not even spare even his son. Finally, the daughters and son locked themselves in the washroom but they broke open the washroom door and thrashed them. The attack continued for nearly half an hour, but no one came to their rescue. They even brutally assaulted children of the family, the son and grandson, then dragged his son’s body to the road and fled after dumping it there.

Autopsy report suggested that the Man died due to severe blood loss and hemorrhage. Six accused were nabbed and put behind bars. They have been identified as Rupender, Vivek, Sree Om, Sandeep, Saurabh and Gaurav, all in their late 20s. It has come to our knowledge that the mob held a meeting in a temple in the middle of the village, where they decided to teach the deceased a lesson for slaughtering cows. The mob then rushed to the victim’s home and attacked the family. The police did not react on time. The locals gave samples of meat to cops but they did not take it seriously. Finally, the flesh was found to be of goat’s meat and not beef. And even if, they were consuming beef then also who had given them the authority to beat people and kill them.

The entire incidence happened due to people spreading rumours. Without any substantial truth, one had to sacrifice his life. I wonder why such people never react or kill culprits who get away with rapes and murders. Do these people really belong to human race or animals? This is ridiculous and really bringing bad image for Hinduism in the world. Cow is sacrosanct for Hindus and not for others. Putting such moral policing on food is wrong at a very first place. However, hurting a human for some rumour is worst kind of behaviour. Hindus must keep away from such acts, otherwise what would be the difference between them and Taliban?

The administration and politicians gave explanations that there was confusion. There were a lot of events (incidents) gave birth to such event, not only cow slaughtering but of animal theft and animal slaughtering going on in that area. In that confusion, there was misunderstanding about the animal killing and the event occurred due to that. Today, people have lost all rationality and reason when they assess an incident and try to justify by all means. A cow is more important than a man’s life and killing him by a mob is ‘justifiable’. If they are so much concerned about animal rights then the first things they should do is to urge the government to be more firm with the poaching of endangered animals, reptiles, avian, insects and plants etc. They deserve more of this kind of protection than the bovine species which are everywhere in plenty. Is this India shinning? Human life has no value. Religious fanatics are out there to kill. Minorities are no longer safe in India. NRI Muslims have to think twice before embarking on settling down in India.
