24, Jul 2018 | CJP Team
The recent lynching Akbar Khan (alias Rakbar) in Alwar, shows how instances of lynching have not abated in 2018. In fact there has been an increase in the spate of violence against minorities and oppressed sections of society over the last three years. ‘Lynching’ has become common and most victims and survivors are either Muslim or Dalit. Here is a timeline of lynching incidents including those of Mohammed Akhlaq, Alimuddin Ansari and Pehlu Khan.
This timeline was first published on December 29, 2017. We keep updating new instances and republishing the timeline from time to time.
