Govt encouraging mob lynching, says Opposition

'This Is Hindustan, Don't Make It Lynchistan': Congress In Parliament

Earlier in the day, initiating the debate, Congress leader in the House Mallikarjun Kharge accused the NDA government of "indirectly encouraging" right-wing groups such as Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal for attacking people in the name of cow protection.

The Congress on Monday said in the Lok Sabha that India should not be allowed to become lynchistan, referring to the incidents of cow vigilantism across the country, reported PTI. He said the incidents of mob lynchings were not coming down.

With the Opposition demanding a governmental condemnation and framing of a strong law to tackle vigilantism, the government said that mob lynching or anything related to it was "unacceptable" and that Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself had condemned it.

However, he did not agree with Opposition parties' demand that the Prime Minister must speak on this issue in the Lower House. "There can not be bigger lynching than this", the BJP member said.

"He asked the government to give details of the actiontaken against the accused in these cases, claiming that theyhad become brazen because of lack of action".

Listing out mob lynching incidents in Gujarat, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Kharge said, "Gujarat, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh - wherever Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is in power, these mob violence and lynchings happen".

Trinamool leader Saugata Ray said violence in the name of cow protection was actually targeted killing.

The Prime Minister says he was against it, but whataction has he taken, Kharge asked and said "He says somethingand does something else".

"Do you want the Centre to send the Army to control goons? There are mob lynchings happening here and nothing is being done!" he added.

To make their case, they cited the lynching of Srinagar deputy superintendent of police (DySP) Ayub Pandith on June 23.

Narayan further countered Kharge on the Ballabhgarh train incident, saying, " The Junaid incident was a fight over a train seat, why are you linking it with religion?
