In Jharkhand’s Godda, two Muslims lynched to death
Here is the latest example of Hindutvadi fascism when two Muslims were lynched to death in Jharkand, India. The dead are: Murtaza Ansari of Taljhari village and Charku Ansari of Banjhi village.
This is the third lynching in the state. While in Latehar two cattle traders were killed and their bodies hanged from a tree in March 2016, a beef trader was lynched by a mob comprising largely of gau rakshaks in June 2017, in Ramgarh district. In the Ramgarh lynching, 11 including a local BJP leader were convicted and handed life sentences for murder in the name of cow protection.
Police said the incident occurred Wednesday morning at Bankatti village on the border of Deodand and Sunder Pahari area in Godda. Extra security forces have been deployed in the area to avoid untoward incidents.
