Dalit killed for removing dead cows/animals for which he had a licence.


Dalit killed for removing dead cows/animals for which he had a licence.
Shamsul Islam

It is not first time that Dalit Shyam Kumar has been killed by Hindutva zealots for removing dead animals including cows having a license.  5 Dalits doing the same authorized work were lynched by a mob spearheaded by VHP & Shiv Sena in Jhajjar in October 2002. Since killing of Dalits is not a big issue and Manusmriti allows it routinely nobody will be punished. In such killings killers at best 'feel bad' and state remains a mere spectator thus helping the killers to roam free. Dalit activists should stop removing dead animals and let the Hindutva zealots do it.

The Hindu, NEW DELHI, October 5, 2015

By Maria Akram

A grim reminder of the Najafgarh episode

Last year on August 2, a mini-truck was stopped at a police check point in Najafgarh's Chhawla village. As the driver negotiated his passage with the police, a group of villagers, some of them on bikes, gathered around the truck. In no time they beat up the driver mercilessly, breaking his skull and leaving him dead on the spot. His fault: he was driving a truck load of dead cows and buffaloes.

An hour later, the mob, which thought it had lynched a "Muslim cow smuggler", came to know that the victim was a Hindu man named Shankar Kumar, belonging to the Valmiki community. He was a South Delhi Municipal Corporation contractor and was carrying dead cows from a cowshed in Surehra village in Southwest Delhi for cremation at Ghazipur in East Delhi.

The police registered a case against 13 persons under various sections of Indian Penal Code, including rioting and attempt to murder, but all of them got bail in July this year for lack of evidence.

Shankar's death has found a grim reminder in Mohammed Akhlaq's killing in Bishara village in Uttar Pradesh, who too was lynched on suspicion of consuming and storing beef in his house. The events that led to Kumar's and Akhlaq's killings are indicative of the cloud of hatred building up in smaller towns of India.

The political discourse in Najafgarh can be explained with a small cow replica kept on the office table of the area Councillor, Pradeep Kumar. Cows are even painted on the façades in this rural belt of Delhi. "You see the cow is very dear to the people of Najafgarh," said Mr. Kumar.

The "animosity" against Muslims took root in Chhawla and neighbouring villages in 2012 after remains of dead cows were sighted by villagers at several spots, the police said. The Hindus in Chhawla blamed the Muslims from nearby Mewat village of killing cows to hurt their religious sentiments.

And so a new trend began. The people of Rawta village formed a vigilante force which began night patrolling at the border between Mewat and Chhawla. Their duty was to protect cows from "Muslim smugglers". "Security was also stepped up," said the BJP councillor.

Though the cow sentiment culminated into a lynch mob that killed Shankar, the local politicians continue to justify the presence of vigilantes. Local politicians do feel bad about the killing, but not enough to condemn it. "The people of Chhawla, Rawta and Shikarpur villages (mainly the families of the accused) apologised to Shankar's widow. After, all it is impossible to contain a frenzied mob and even the family 'understood' this," said Mr. Kumar.

Shyama, Shankar's wife, resides in a nondescript colony in Nangloi, where an open drain with cows feeding on plastic and garbage dumped in it flows hardly 50 meters from her house. "We got to know about it (Shankar's killing) a day later," said Shyama, a mother of seven kids -- six daughters and a son. The police registered a case against 13 persons 'accused' but the witnesses in the court turned hostile.
