n the 70s and 80s USA was riddled with psychopath serial murderers. These are the kind of people who killed innocent people in cold blood for the fun of it. The 21st century nation is witnessing serial lynching of the members of the minority community and the subsequent bragging of it on social networking sites. Just imagine the tragedy of a man who is there on the road with a hundred men armed with whips, leather belts, clubs, and hockey sticks just wanting to have a piece of him. What happened in Rajasthan a few days ago is emblematic of how emboldened the fringe elements have become. Men in the length and breadth are forced to chant some strange slogans failing which the men are whipped, stripped, burnt or lynched. And the unfortunate part is that, all this is recorded on camera.
People joyfully share the videos and some even blame the men for refusing to chant the slogans. All this is happening in broad daylight right under the nose of establishment. The Prime Minister has repeatedly criticised these serial Lynchings but it seems things are going south. Day in and day out we see more and more Lynchings. It is a shame that all this is being done in the name of religion whereas all the religions teach peace only. How can peace be achieved through Lynchings? At the same time how can the law enforcement agencies watch this whole thing as spectators. Is not it the primary response of the government to protect life and property? We hope that all this mayhem ends. We also hope that the culprits are brought to book as soon as possible.
