Modi says he is pained by Jharkhand lynching
By The Hindu 27-Jun-2019
“Some people in the Rajya Sabha are calling Jharkhand a hub of lynching. Is this fair? Why are they insulting a State? None of us have the right to insult the State of Jharkhand,” he said. Jharkhand will go to the polls later this year. Whether it is Jharkhand, or West Bengal or Kerala, incidents of violence should be treated in the same manner and the perpetrators of violence should get the message that the entire country is one on this issue, the Prime Minister said.
In the Jharkhand lynching, Tabrez Ansari, 24, was tied to an electric pole and beaten up on suspicion of being a thief. The suspects recorded his plight on a mobile phone and forced him to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’ and ‘Jai Hanuman’. He was rescued by the police but later died of his wounds. Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, while referring to the incident, had said a day ago in the Rajya Sabha that Jharkhand had become a den of mob lynchings and mob violence.
Mr. Modi said the country’s future and unity was linked to the National Register of Citizens (NRC). “Credit is a big issue over here. Look at NRC, won’t you take credit for it? As per the Assam Accord (1985) Rajiv Gandhi agreed to NRC and the Supreme Court intervened only much later. Our country’s unity and future is linked to it. And we are following the court’s order,” he said.
