On Monday, Jharkhand Minister C P Singh said it is wrong to politicize the incident in which a man named Tabrez Ansari was lynched by a mob near Jamshedpur. He assured that the State government is investigating the matter.
“The trend prevalent these days is to associate such incidents with BJP, RSS, VHP and Bajrang Dal. It’s a time of cut and paste, who fits what words where is difficult to say. The government will conduct an investigation. The trend to politicize such incidents are wrong,” said Singh.
The statement came after AIMIM chief MP Asaduddin Owaisi alleged that the BJP and RSS have increased the sense of hatred against Muslims. He also said that they have created a mindset wherein the minority community is looked down upon.
“Incidents of mob lynching are not going to stop because BJP and RSS have increased a sense of hatred against Muslims. They have successfully created a mindset where Muslims are seen as terrorists, anti-nationals and cow slaughters,” he said.
The man was admitted to Sadar hospital and then referred to Tata Main Hospital in Jamshedpur.
Tabrez’s family has alleged that the attack was communal and that he was made to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’ and ‘Jai Hanuman’.
An FIR has been registered and further investigation is underway, police said.
