New Delhi, Aug 12 : Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said that mob lynching has become new normal in India  and expressed hope that preventive measures and stern action against the culprits reflected Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent remarks .

Taking to Twitter, the PDP leader said, “Mob lynching has become the dominant discourse and its near normalisation has marked a new low for democracy in India. I hope the PM’s statement condemning it is followed by concrete steps and punitive punishment against the culprits.



Minister of State For External Affairs General (Retd) VK Singh on Sunday said that this problem is everywhere in the country not only in western Uttar Pradesh.

In June, Samiuddin, 64, and Qasim Qureishi were allegedly severely beaten at Hapur in Uttar Pradesh by a group of people who alleged that they were involved in cow slaughter. Both had received injuries and Qureishi died later.

Reportedly, more than 20 people have been lynched in different parts of the country over suspicion of being child lifters.

Congress led Opposition parties and the Trinamool Congress, has been raising the issue in the Lok Sabha.
