The recent Palghar Mob Lynching has truly sent shockwaves across the country. Netizens are baffled by this random act of violence and the Government of Maharashtra is trying its best to bring the culprits to justice. Even popular celebs, such as Anupam Kher and Faran Akhtar, have taken to social media to condemn the violent Palghar mob lynching incident.
HORRIFIED AND DEEPLY DEEPLY SADDENED at the #PalgharMobLynching of three sadhus. Couldn’t watch the video till the end. ये क्या हो रहा है? ये क्यों हो रहा है। मानवता का जघन्य अपराध है ये।— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPKher) April 19, 2020
Strongly condemn the violence that took the lives of 3 people in Palghar. Mob rule should have no place in our society and I hope the murderers have been arrested and that justice is delivered swiftly.— Farhan Akhtar (@FarOutAkhtar) April 19, 2020
#PalgharMobLynching is highly condemnable n inhuman. All d accused have already been arrested n will be brought to justice in strongest manner. But there’s certainly no need to communalise it. Humanity is at peril not any particular religion in such times. #Palghar— Urmila Matondkar (@UrmilaMatondkar) April 20, 2020
