Rajasthan has become notorious for being the hub of Hindutva terrorism. Not so long ago, a Hindutva terrorist Shambhulal Regar had axed a Muslim man before burning him alive in Rajasthan’s Rajsamand area. He was later glorified as a hero local Hindus as they decided to have his statue on display during this year’s Ramnavami celebrations.
The Hindutva terrorist was later allowed to post hate videos from inside the jail under the state’s BJP government led by Vasundhara Raje. Killing Muslims in the name of cow has become a new fashion under the BJP-led central government headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
One of Modi’s ministers, Jayanat Sinha, had recently honoured several lynching convicts in Jharkhand after they were released on bail. Sinha is a Harvard and IIT alumnus. A campaign was launched requesting Harvard to withdraw Sinha’s alumnus status.
Last year, a dairy farmer, Pehlu Khan, was lynched to death in Alwar. Later, the Rajasthan Police had given clean chit to six accused, who were seen on camera killing Khan.
