In three separate incidents, four people were lynched in the states of Bihar and Jharkhand on Thursday. In Jharkhand, a man was lynched in Dumka district for allegedly raping and murdering an 8-year-old girl. The incident comes on the same day when a meat trader succumbed to injuries after he was assaulted by at least 10 men who intercepted his van carrying “cattle meat” in Ramgarh district near Ranchi, Jharkhand Police said. Police identified the victim as Alimuddin Ansari, in his mid-30s, from the Giddi area of Ramgarh.

In Bihar’s Rohtas district, two alleged thieves were beaten to death.

According to a report in The New Indian Express, Mithun Hansda (30) was tied to a tree with ropes and thrashed mercilessly by an angry mob early on Thursday. The incident happened at Thadihat village under Ramgarh police station in Dumka. “Hours after the body of an eight-year-old girl, Sonamuni Marandi, was discovered, the villagers suspected Hansda to have raped and killed him. The girl had gone missing from a wedding ceremony a day ago,” said Roshan Gudiya, the DSP of Ramgarh, told the New Indian Express. Over twenty people have been booked for murder.

In Bihar, two siblings, Baban Musahar (30) and Murahu Musahar (32), who belonged to the Mahadalit community, were beaten up by about 20 people at Basdiha village under Kochas police station in Rohtas district late on Wednesday night, according to The New Indian Express.  While Baban died on the spot, Murahu died at a nearby hospital. Police said the two victims were among a gang of six thieves trying to enter a house past midnight and were caught by the villagers while the rest four managed to flee.

A spate of lynching incidents was reported in Jharkhand last month. Nine people were beaten to death in three separate incidents in a span of eight days by rampaging mobs in southern Jharkhand.

        Government of Modi has failed to maintain order and security in the country. Police runaway from the crimes to save their skin. Th country belongs to Ghoondas.

            Are staged Church attacks next to demonize the Hindus??????? The real facts are that the larger Hindu population is democratic, secular, and inclusive. All these staged protests, riots, and the anti-national activities against the BJP by the communal party and their supporters like Muslims/Christian would not hold water because the larger Hindu population has the ultimate say in the future of the country. The recent sweep by the BJP in UP is a good example wherein the congress, the communists played the Dalit/Muslim card and lost big. The congress party and the incompetent dynastic rule will see the sunset in the coming elections.

              Instead of making cosmetic statements modi should have taken the phone and ring his sanghi chief ministers and given them a strong instruction to deal with the gau rakshak strongly ! look at the foreign media news about india ! now hindus are portrayed as blood thirsty people who kill innocents just in the name of beef eaten by 7 billion people in the world ! sanghis managed to make india a laughing stock ! above all there is no law in the BJP ruled states where minorities and dalits can be killed easily by lynch mob or gau rakshaks with mere accusation of eating beef or conversion. the only option for people now to arm themselves and fight a guerilla war against these blood thirst gober eating communal sanghi terrorists and finish this cancer for the sake of national security and integrity of the country!

                Ordinary Muslims are better and safer in India if they lynch (politically) their own leaders who are exploiting them while they are making crores at expense of their emotions
