Taking into consideration the soaring cases of mob lynching in India, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi demanded a new law against mob lynching to the Home Minister Amit Shah at the Parliament on Friday.
The MP from Hyderabad questioned the government for not bringing a law on mob lynching despite the order from the Supreme Court. Furthermore citing the Bihar mob lynching incident of Friday and the Jharkhand lynching of Tabrez Ansari claimed that there is 'so much hate' against the Muslim community.
He said, "I want to ask the Home Minister, last year the Supreme Court asked the government to make a law on mob lynching. Why aren't you making it? We saw what happened in Bihar today. We saw what happened with Tabrez Ansari in the past few days. There is so much hate towards Muslims in the country. The lynchers hit them, the Police takes them to the hospital but the hospital does not care for them, they don't look at them in the judicial custody."
Moreover, Owaisi insisted that the Home Minister must ban some outfits to stop the incidences of mob lynching.
"If Sanjiv Bhatt can be punished after 18 years, we can hope that the Jharkhand government does the same. I want to ask Amit shah why is the government not making any law on mob lynching? Amit Shah you would have to ban some outfits to dismiss lynching. If you don't do it, remember, they will harm you and the country," he added.
In solidarity to the victims of mob lynching and their families, Owaisi in a tweet a tweet said that: We'll not forget the victims of mob violence. They were human: sons, spouses, and fathers. To the parents who've have had to see their sons' funerals, kids who'll never know their father & wives who'll have to fight tough battles ahead: You are not alone
