    Lynching in the name of cow could lead to another partition: PDP MP Baig

    Synopsis

    "We want to appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi that killing of Muslims in the name of cow be stopped. One partition has already taken place in 1947, (but) more could take place if these continue," Baig said.

    "We allied with the BJP so that they can trust Muslims. We allied with the BJP so that justice is done to Muslims and Kashmiris and talks with Pakistan can take place," Baig said.
    Senior PDP leader and Lok Sabha member from Baramulla Muzaffar Hussain Baig today warned of another partition of India if lynching of Muslims over cow-smuggling allegations were not stopped forthwith.

    He was addressing a rally to mark the People's Democratic Party's (PDP) 19th foundation day.

    Referring to the incidents of mob lynching in the name of cow vigilantism, Baig said, "We want to appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi that killing of Muslims in the name of cow be stopped. One partition has already taken place in 1947, (but) more could take place if these continue."

    He said the PDP had allied with the BJP not for power but to ensure that justice was done to Muslims across the country and to the Kashmiri people.

    "We allied with the BJP so that they can trust Muslims. We allied with the BJP so that justice is done to Muslims and Kashmiris and talks with Pakistan can take place," he added.

    Regardless of what Mr Baig said, mob lynching in any form should be banned by the Centre and actions taken against such mischief makers. At the same time the govt through appeals could request the general masses to slowly wean away from this act of cow killing as it is against a major religion. I am sure the public will take this as a genuine appeal and avoid such incidents. You can also see in many countries where pork is banned there are no problems.
