Mob lynchings: Mohan Bhagwat’s remarks insensitive and unlucky, says Congress.
Meanwhile, the Congress on Tuesday criticised Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh leader Mohan Bhagwat’s claim that lynching was a”western build” and should not be combined together with all the Indian context to harm the nation’s reputation.
“The issue is not Europe or India, English or Hindi. The killing of innocent, hapless people by agitated mobs is unacceptable to humanity. Languages do not matter.” He added that Bhagwat’s remark was unlucky.
“Please stay clear with this in India’s interest.”
Bhagwat before on Tuesday said certain episodes of”societal violence” were known as lynching so as to defame the nation and the Hindu society and to cause fear one of a few communities. “Lynching isn’t the word out of Indian ethos, its origin is derived from a narrative in a separate religious text,” Bhagwat said at Nagpur in Maharashtra on the occasion of Vijayadashami. “We Indians expect in brotherhood. Do not impose such terms on Indians.”
“In RSS members do not get involved, rather they try to prevent it,” Bhagwat said, based on ANI. “But the events are introduced in a different way that spread dispute. This really is a conspiracy and everybody should understand it”
Maharashtra Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant asserted it would be a lie to state that the RSS has nothing to do with lynchings. “It’s as much a lie to state that RSS has nothing to do with lynchings as it’s a lie to say RSS isn’t a cultural organisation, is anti-casteist, pro-reservation and respects both the Constitution and tricolour,” Sawant explained. “Spreading falsehood is the ideology of the Sangh Parivar.”
Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh said Bhagwat must follow with his own message of harmony. “All problems will finish the afternoon Mohan Bhagwat starts following his concept of harmony. . .mob lynching and hatred could also end,” Singh told reporters in Bhopal, in accordance with PTI. “Our complaints will end the day agdopts the essentials of love, harmony and the route of Mahatma Gandhi.”
There have been a number of instances of lynching in the past couple of decades, many of which were connected with the transport of cattle or rumours of all child-lifting. The police had also been attacked by the mob because case if they had attempted to rescue the victim.
