  1. We witness moblynching of persons caught is cattle illegal trafficking every month.Casulty is confirmed with brutal killing of muslim traders involved.They die but their dependents are deprived of minimum needs of daily lives.
    Now all these incidents go viral and even uneducated muslims vies these horrific videos in their smart phones.It is an issue exposed in totality to every Muslim.
    Now the question is why do Muslim repeat such activity where they are caught n killed everytime.
    Why can’t this be stopped. It is high time we all realised this as an issue of importance. Our NGOs need to create alternate job opportunity to those who have been in cattle trade or butchers all these years.
    Our Ulemas and Jamaaths , if free from their internal fightingss must evolve a consensus to ensure that Muslims at large get exposed to such social issues and do not repeat such offences.Instead of sentimental speeches, it is required we adopt to social realities and act responsibly. A joint council of all party Ulema and religious centres, jamaeths and NGOs actively involve itself to check social disparity and help stop illegal trade of cows by Muslims

  2. Don’t communalise it. Thieves and robbers get lynched all the time whether hindu or muslim. It’s a law and order issue not communal
