Give up eating beef to stop lynchings, says RSS Leader Indresh Kumar
Ranchi, July 24: After the government constituted a high level committee to check cases of mob lynching, Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) leader has come with a solution of his own. In the wake of lynching incident at Alwar in Rajasthan, RSS leader Indresh Kumar said people should stop eating beef to curb mob lynching incidents.
He also claimed that calling 'Hindus communal' is fraught with the risk of labelling all religions in the world as communal.
Speaking at the inauguration of Jagran Hindu Manch in Ranchi, Indresh Kumar said, "The Lynchings will stop if people don't eat beef. The cows must be protected and cowdung should be used as cement, then both poverty and violence will end... Jesus was born in a cowshed and that is why in Christianity they talk of 'Holy cow'. In Mecca and Medina killing cow is a crime. Can we not pledge not to kill cows. If we can pledge this our problem of mob lynching will be solved."
Isaa (Jesus) dharti par gaushala mein aaye, isliye waha mother cow bolte hain. Mecca Madina mein gaye ka vadh apradh maante hain. Kya hum sankalp nahi kar sakte ki dhara,manavta ko is paap se muqt karaein.Agar muqt ho jaaye to aapki samasya(mob lynching) ka hal ho jaayega:I Kumar pic.twitter.com/AyrMKnLznO— ANI (@ANI) July 24, 2018
"Any mob violence, be it of your home, locality, caste or party can never be welcomed. But, you tell me if any religious place in the world approves the killing of cow," said Indresh.
Kisi bhi mob ki hinsa, wo aapke ghar ki, mohalle ki, jaati ki, party ki ho, wo kabhi bhi abhinandaniya nahin ho sakti. Parantu, duniya ke jitne bhi dharm hain, unke kisi ek dharam sthal par bata do ki gaye (cow) ka vadh hota hai: Indresh Kumar, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.

Last week, a dairy farmer, Rakbar Khan from Haryana's Mewat district, was lynched by a group of seven persons in Alwar when he was transporting two cows and their calves.
Khan and his friend Aslam were taking cows to their villages in Haryana through a forest in Alwar's Ramgarh area when they were accosted by a mob and allegedly attacked. While Aslam managed to flee, Khan was allegedly lynched.
The Rajasthan Police on Monday admitted "error of judgement" in handling the case of alleged lynching of 28-year-old Rakbar in Alwar, as it suspended one and transferred three policemen, even as it refuted allegations of "custodial death".
