Popular Front condemns lynching of tribal Christians in Jharkhand

Popular Front of India Chairman E Abubacker has, in a statement, condemned the Gorakshak attack in Jharkhand that killed a tribal man and seriously injured two others.

In yet another incident of brutality in the name of cow, Gorakshak gangs have killed an innocent man and seriously injured two others in Khunti district of Jharkhand, around 50 km from state capital Ranchi. This time the victims happen to be tribal Christians.

The state of Jharkhand is becoming horror of a place for minorities with rampant hate crimes, grave human rights violations, Gorakshaks enjoying impunity under the BJP government. It was in June that 24-year-old, newly married, Tabrez Ansari was brutalised in similar fashion in the state, leading to his death.

Jharkhand government and police are yet prove that they have any intention to stop this madness. In fact their inaction and negligence is the primary factor that emboldens criminal and communal elements to go on targeting innocents belonging to minorities and weaker sections.

Along with Muslims, Christians, Dalits and Adivasis are also targets of the ideology of hate carried by mob lynchers. E Abubacker called upon all the victimised communities to plan and act jointly for ensuring the safety of their people.
