Book the perpetrators of lynching immediately : SDPI

By Special Correspondent

New Delhi: Social Democratic Party of India, (SDPI) on Tuesday  condemned the lynching of a Muslim taxi driver in Noida when he reportedly refused to chant “Jai Shri Ram” on UP highway on September 6, 2020. SDPI demanded the UP government should  bring the culprit to the justice and pay due compensation to the victim’s family.

In a statement, SDPI national general secretary Mohammad Shafi said that the victim’s son’s statement  that he recorded his father’s last call, made minutes before his death, in which the killers can be heard asking Aftab Alam, the taxi driver, to chant “Jai Shri Ram.

Shafi ridiculed the RSS claim that lynching is “alien to Indian traditions,” as the country is  continue to witness  lynching incident with terrible regularity  since the BJP came to power.

He said that the recent trend of lynching should not be isolated from the overall Hinduisation political project that began with Rath yatra of L.K Advani in 1990 that led to destruction of Babri Masjid in 1992.

“Gujarat genocide in  2002 followed the Hindutv script fully. It is a tool to terrorise Muslims and to create fear among the common people. The Opposition is hopelessly weakened to confront this terror and the common people are forced to develop their own mechanism to drive away the murderous gangs,” he added.

The SDPI urged the UP police to catch the killers and their paymasters in time and to pay compensation to the family of the unfortunate victim.
