The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Monday, cautioned the nation against anti-social elements attempting to disrupt communal harmony among people. The right-wing organisation has condemned the brutal attacks on the Dalit community saying that taking the law into one’s hands is not only illegal but inhuman. The Organisation has requested the government to take immediate measures against such anti-social elements and stop these attacks. Earlier today Gau Rakshak Dal Chief Satish Kumar was arrested by Patiala Police. Kumar was unapologetic in his response as he said that the Police is just reacting due to media pressure.

The Congress Party on Monday walked out of the Parliament session citing the atrocities faced by the Dalits. Party leaders had questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statements on “gau rakshaks”, terming it as a vote bank policy and asked him as to why this statement was not given in the Parliament. Modi, on Sunday, in a rally in Hyderabad had said that it angers him to see the anti-social elements of the society covering up their crimes under the banner of “gau rakshak.” Modi urged the attackers to shoot him but leave the Dalits alone. His statements were criticised my many political leaders, such as Bahujan Samajwadi Party Chief Mayawati (BSP), who accused him of playing vote politics. She said that Modi did not raise this issue in the parliament, where he could be cross-questioned. UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav had called Modi’s statements against cow vigilantism was too late.

While cow vigilantism has been a major pain for both the government and people alike, concrete steps are yet to be taken by the government despite “condemn” statements made by politicians. PM Modi’s statements are a tad late in the state of affairs and have been condemned widely and called vote bank tactics.
