    So if I get this straight, mob kills a human over cow meat and the same mob now wants to charge his family with crime. Does anyone else find anything wrong with this picture? The mob instead of facing death sentence are asking police to arrest victims family.

          Hindus can't be TRUSTED. Shame on these Hindus for killing and lynching an innocent family over a beef rumor which is falsely fabricated as beef by the bhrastachar janta party
