Clear Mis­match in Gov­ern­ment’s Ac­tion and In­ten­tion on Lynch­ing

The Day After - - OPEN HOUSE - Naseem Ashraf, Luc­know

As out­rage rises over cow-re­lated lynch­ing, the gov­ern­ment has re­sponded by ap­point­ing a high­level com­mit­tee to study the grow­ing men­ace. They have also is­sued an ad­vi­sory ask­ing states to rein in the vi­o­lence, the sec­ond in a month. How­ever, I am still try­ing to find out what was the rea­son for Modi gov­ern­ment to ap­point this com­mit­tee when there is enough ma­te­rial avail­able to es­tab­lish abet­ment of lynch­ing by its lead­ers, al­lied par­ties and sis­ter con­cerns. They could have taken di­rect ac­tion against them if their in­ten­tions were clean.
