SDPI condemns lynching of Muslim taxi driverSocial Democratic Party of India, (SDPI), has condemned the lynching of a Muslim taxi driver in Noida when he reportedly refused to chant “Jai Shri Ram” on UP highway on September 6, 2020.SDPI national general secretary Mohammad Shafi in a statement said that the victim’s son’s statement that he recorded his father’s last call, made minutes before his death, in which the killers can be heard asking Aftab Alam, the taxi driver, to chant “Jai Shri Ram.SDPI general secretary ridiculed the RSS claim that lynching is “alien to Indian traditions,” as the country is witnessing series of lynchings since came to power.Shafi, however, said that the recent trend of lynching should not be isolated from the overall Hinduisation political project that began with rath yathra on Ayodhya in 1992.Gujarat genocide in 2002 followed the hindutwa script fully. It is a tool to terrorise Muslims and to create fear among the common people.The Opposition is hopelessly weakened to confront this terror and the common people are forced to develop their own mechanism to drive away the murderous gangs.The general secretary asked the UP police to catch the killers and their paymasters in time and to pay compensation to the family of the unfortunate victim.27,121People reached2,361EngagementsBoost post
