Beef killing

Dadri.....a man lynched.....and why? Because he was rumored to harbor beef inside his home, not even proven. And even if he was proven, does it give any right to kill a man? Just because supposedly in Hinduism, cows are holy and killing them is sacrilege? What kind of intolerance is the people coming to nowadays? To have a man killed.....is this not sacrilege? Is this not violating the supreme law in any custom, any religion, that killing is the ultimate sin? Why is it that in the name and excuse of religion, innocent men and women are discriminated? Our world has enough problems as it is. Is it really necessary to add to the burden? And especially when politicians speak of crime committed just because one ate beef, we are reminded of how disgusting and terrible these so called 'powerful people' are.....really sick of these fanatics and opportunists. And to answer a curious question, no there was no beef in the man's home.

Those who killed him are worse than him. They killed a human being which i believe according to the same religion they are hiding behind it would not be right to kill a fellow man

same religion or not, no one has been given the right to dish out 'justice' like that to any person. Just because someone thinks he had committed a crime doesn't make it so. It's sad the laws of the country are not enough to stop these usurpers. Yes they were arrested but I doubt they will be in prison for longer.

@ria1606roy Nowadays people are misusing the name of religion and are doing all kinds of things but i dont think any religion preaches hatred or even killing a person like this...

@ashuli I think every religion teach about love and forgiveness. They would have chosen to forgive rather than kill

You know what I am glad about? Less than 2 in a group of say 15 is somewhat inclined to favor that act. Which means it is not the entire Hindu population that is for beef ban. However, I am pained that it is 2 and not 0.

Those 2 are not against beef because they believe so, they have been brainwashed. And they are stupid enough to blindly follow that. No person grows up hating beef eaters if they have not been taught to do so.

Religion - and I do not exempt any specific one - has a lot to answer for in the catalogue of man's inhumanity to man.

Religion is the synonym for intolerance nowadays. But I remember no religion containing the instruction to kill a human being if he flouts some rule. This is a result of instigation by the religious heads who will brainwash staunch followers in any manner and make them mad in trivial conditions.

It is really sorry state of affairs that a mountain was made out of mole and things flared up so much that an uncivilized and unruly mob lynched a man. It is a shameless and dastardly act and perpetrators of crime should be severely punished as per the law of land.

that's the point isn't it? They are arrested but won't be in jail for too long. It's a shame our law doesn't really give out law and justice to those who deserve it.

@ria1606roy - They should be tried in Court of law as per the law of the land. Laws should equally be applicable for everyone. No one should be above law.

There is no intolerance practiced in Hinduism. It's just the work of some fanatics motivated by politicians. I don't think religion has much to do with the violence in society. No religion promotes violence.its the people who just find excuses in the name of religion to dominate others. Why not these fanatics do good work for society rather than fighting for cow

Because these politicians bank on votes from fanatics and people who can be easily brainwashed, as they are greater in number. It's easier to unify them under one person on a falsified belief they already believe to be true. And to do good, one has to spend money, which I think all the politicians put into their pocket. So in order to accomplish something, they have been successful to accomplish violence and votes, and nothing of good. These persons often take the help of religion as it can easily be inculcated and bent to one's will....I mean, who has read any holy book thoroughly? Those who have never fall for such atrocities.

Let's hope that there won't be any more of these kind of killings in name of religion.
