Give it a Bharat Sanskriti-Approved Term: Tharoor, Owaisi Target Mohan Bhagwat Over Lynching Remark
New Delhi: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s statement on Tuesday describing lynching as a foreign phenomenon has evoked a strong reaction from opposition leaders.
Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor came down heavily on the Sarsanghchalak and said ‘a crime is a crime’ whether you call it with any ‘bharat culture-approved term’ or not.
You can call it with any bharath sanskriti-approved term, it is still a horrible crime, a crime is a crime.”All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen chief Asaduddin Owaisi also hit out at Bhagwat and alleged he was not trying to stop lynching incidents.
Bhagwat isn’t saying stop lynching, he’s saying ‘don’t call it that’,”Owaisi tweeted.
The term being used these days is ‘lynching’ – it never happened in Bharat.
