More lynchings between 2011 & 13, but nobody questioned then: Shah

Panjim: A day after blaming the Congress for the beef ban in Goa way back in 1976, BJP national president Amit Shah on Sunday said more incidents of lynching had occurred during the previous governments than during the three years of NDA rule.During an interaction with the newspaper editors, Shah said, Humaare teen saal main jitne lynching hue hain usse zyada hue hain ek ek saal main. Magar kabhi yeh sawaal nahi uttha thha — “I do not want to compare and undermine the current incidents of lynching. I am also serious about it. But there have been more lynching incidents in 2011, 2012 and 2013,” Shah said.
“But I am surprised no one had raised questions then,” he added.Shah pointed out that there have been more lynchings each year in the past, compared to the total lynching incidents that have happened during our three-year-long tenure.When pointed out that the incidents of lynching have created a fear amongst citizens, he said there was no apprehension anywhere in the country.”Do you know of any such incident where arrests have not been made? I do not have any answer to apprehensions. There is no apprehension anywhere in the country,” he said.“Aur ab (since NDA government took office) sawaal kis tarah se uthaye jaate hain? Mohammad Akhlaq ka death hua Uttar Pradesh mein tab Samajwadi Party ki sarkar tha. Law and order state subject hain. Jimmedari Samajwadi Party sarkar ki thi. Aur dharna Dilli mein Modi sarkar ke saamne nikalenge. Kya fashion hai?Maintaining that law and order was a state subject, Shah said when Mohammad Akhlaq died, the Samajwadi Party-led government was in power in Uttar Pradesh, and it was their responsibility to ensure such incidents didn’t happen.
