PM Modi has finally broken his silence on the spate of lynchings by Gaurakshaks. The PM has condemned the killings in the name of cow protection, calling them unacceptable.

He also added that Mahatma Gandhi and Vinoba Bhave would strongly disapprove of violence in the name of cow protection.

He said “Killing people in the name of cow is unacceptable. No one has the right to take the law into his/her hands. We belong to a land of non-violence. Violence is not the solution to any problem.”

This comes in the wake of the lynching of a 16-year-old boy Junaid in a train over a dispute over seats. Junaid was called a “beef eater” and anti-Muslims slurs were hurled at them. This triggered a civil society protest #NotInMyName across 10 cities yesterday. The protest was against the lynching of Muslims in the name of cow protection and beef. The movement gained good media coverage and traction on social media. It is being said that PM Modi broke his silence at a speech in Ahmedabad due to the mounting protests and widespread criticism in the international media.

It will be good if PM Modi will actually walk the talk, instead of merely denouncing Gaurakshaks.
