The Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday sent a report to the Centre on the death of Mohammed Akhlaq in Dadri’s Bisara village after a mob attacked him and his son Danish over rumours that they ate beef.

The report does not mention beef consumption or cow slaughter as the trigger for the incident. It, however, claims that there were allegations that Akhlaq and his son Danish were consuming “pratibandhit pashu ka maans (meat of an animal, whose slaughter is prohibited)”.

In the two-page report, the UP government has also mentioned names of politicians who visited the area following the incident, some of whom met Akhlaq’s family. ‘

While making no mention of the circumstances leading up to the mob gathering and lynching the two victims, the report simply cites details of the incident as recorded in the FIR registered by the local police.

“It simply states that at a certain time on the given date, a group of men gathered outside the victims’ residence over rumours that they were consuming “pratibandhit pashu ka maans”. A larger mob later gathered outside the house, following which the victims were lynched,” said a Home Ministry source.

“The report nowhere mentions cow slaughter of beef consumption as the reason behind the lynching, and states that further probes are being conducted before the state government can arrive at a final conclusion,” the source added.

      You cannot expect any sensible behavior from the UP govt run by people like Azam Khan and his foster son Akhilesh.

          Hindu Fundamentalists and BJP by demolition of Babri Masjid divided Indians into two communal groups. The literates have judged the aftermath consequences. Now they are dividing Indians into Vegetarians and Non-Vegetarians by ping laws which stregthen support to such terrorists to kill Muslims in the name of beef ban. The motive behind this is to develop hatred, revenge, ultimately communal clashes on beef issue. If cows are holy all over the world they would have started international cow protection movement. Only Indian cows are holy for them. If so the BJP Govt. must import unholy cows from the neighbouring SARC countries favouring Food Security Act. Pehle bhook mitao, phir sub ka sath, sub ka vikas.
