Politics of hate
During a protest against the lynchings, Ravish Kumar said, “Not only cows, now some excuse is being used to kill innocent people and create an atmosphere of terror in the society. These people do not have a direct relationship with any political party, but they are from the same WhatsApp University from where the fake rumours come out.
Ravish said that he wants to warn society that these political ideologies are bent on turning their innocent children into murderers.
For the second time in less than a year in India, pictures of Muslim women have been put up for display on an app that appears to be an online ‘auction’. The name of this app created on ‘GitHub’ is ‘Bulli Bai’, which is an insulting term used for Muslim women.
Many women have since taken to Twitter to protest the harassment, especially of Muslim women in India. Hours later, the Indian government promised action.
