‘If killing of cows stops, lynchings will automatically stop:Indresh Kumar

NEW DELHI: RSS leader Indresh Kumar on Monday said that if cow-killing is stopped then lynchings will also automatically end, reported news agency ANI.
Kumar further said that while lynching incidents must be condemned, it must be noted that many religions don’t condone the killing of cows and they consider it a sin.
“Jesus came to this earth born in a stable (gaushala), that’s why there they call the cow ‘mother’, go to Mecca-Medina, they consider the killing of a cow a crime, can we not imagine that if humanity is rid of sin of killing cows, the problem (of mob lynching) will be solved,” asked the RSS leader.
He was answering questions on the Alwar lynching episode of late last week. A 31-year-old Muslim man from Haryana’s Mewat district was lynched in Rajasthan’s Alwar, late on Friday. Rakbar Khan, who was allegedly attacked by a group of 8-10 cow vigilantes, succumbed to injuries in hospital a few hours later.
On Friday night, rather than save the life of the 31-year-old youth allegedly lynched by cow vigilantes, the two cows recovered from him seemed to have been the police’s priority. The cows were taken to a gaushala 10km away, a good hour before Khan was brought to the hospital – dead.
In his dying statement, Rakbar told police that he and his friend Aslam were walking back with two cows they had bought when they came under attack in Ramgarh, with the mob accusing them of being smugglers taking the cattle for slaughter.
Last April, Mewat dairy farmer Pehlu Khan (55) had been killed the same way, in Alwar. Two of Rakbar’s alleged attackers-Dharmendra Yadav and Parmjeet Singh- were arrested on Saturday.
The home ministry on Monday sought a report from Rajasthan government on the Alwar lynching, apart from issuing a fresh advisory urging all states and Union territories to initiate effective measures to prevent instances of mob violence and lynching and take stringent action as per the law.
