"Horrendous acts of Mobocracy": Lawmaker Nusrat Jahan in open letter
Two days after 49 eminent personalities wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the alleged rise in hate crimes across the country over the last few years, actor-turned-Trinamool Congress lawmaker Nusrat Jahan today penned an open letter highlighting the importance of human life at a time when its people were facing "horrendous acts of mobocracy".
"Hate crimes and mob lynchings are on a steep rise in our country. The 2014-2019 (period) has the most hate crimes against Muslims, Dalits and minorities to its credit. 2019 has witnessed more than 11 hate crimes and 4 deaths, and they are all minorities and the suppressed," the letter said, exuding hope that her fellow citizens would raise their voice against it.
