Normalisation of mob lynching a new low for democracy in India, says Mehbooba

Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said that mob lynching in India has become a dominant discourse and its normalization has marked  a new low for democracy in India.

Mehbooba took to her Twitter handle after Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a statement on mob lynching termed the act as crime, “ I want to make it clear that mob lynching is a crime, no matter what the motive,” Modi was quoted as saying by Times of India.

Mehbooba lauded the statement of Modi on mob lynching and said that she hoped the statement made by Modi will be followed by concrete steps and punishment against the culprits, “Mob lynching has become the dominant discourse and its near normalisation has marked a new low for democracy in India. I hope the PM’s statement condemning it is followed by concrete steps and punitive punishment against the culprits.” she wrote on her Twitter handle.
