Ikhlaq of Dadri (U.P.)
Intolerance - In a Secular State, Bharatkhande (India)
The other day on 7 October 2015, I wrote in my blog that Nayantara Sehgal a noted Indian writer in English and Sahitya Akademi Awardee. Returned her award on the lynching of Ikhlaq a Muslim blacksmith, suspecting to be storing beef. Others followed like Ashok Vajpayee, Jai Shankar, Anand Patwardhan and Deewakar Benerji, Nishata Jain, Rakesh Sharma and FTII also joined them for solidarity. Various actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Gulzar and scientists etc. also shown solidarity quoting “intolerance” is on ‘up’ in the country. The noted author ‘Salman Rushdie’ also bashed Modi for this factor.
Shankar Kumar, A Hindu Dalit has been also lynched in a similar way and recently in Karnataka, two persons, VHP member, killed in clashes over Tipu Jayanti celebration on 10th November 2015 in Madikeri town of Karnataka.
These three states where Ikhlaq, Shankar Kumar and two VHP members have been killed are not governed by BJP.
Raghubir Lal Anand asks from himself a question that on the death of Ikhlaq whole nation joined the media to condemn the unfortunate killing and gave him Rs. 45 Lacs to his family and other facilities like house and other damages, because he was a Muslim.
Shankar Kumar and two VHP members, there is nobody to cry / weep except their own family being Hindus.
I ask the people of the whole world is there any human right for Hindus also in this country which is called India?
