Civil society takes out protest against lynching

protest against lynching

By Dr M Rahmatullah / New Delhi

Delhi took to streets to protest against lynching taking place in different parts of the country. With civil society waking up, a silent “march against lynching” procession was taken out in east Delhi on Vikas Marg connecting New Delhi Railway Station to trans-Yamuna.

A good number of youths in their mid twenty participated in the convoy with slogans on their emotive and varied placards in their hands. These youth were from diverse settings of society.

A placard reads: ‘Let’s save humanity’. Another reads: ‘Don’t be judgmental, be judicious, please’. The participating youth appeared to be clearly perturbed and annoyed by the extrajudicial killings frequently reported in the country. They all were unison to press a demand for an anti-lynching law in the country where the mob is taking undue advantage of the absence of non- distinct law against crooks involved in lynching which has its foreign roots.

A participant with placard clung to his chest says” nobody has rights to take the law into his hands. “Let judiciary work and law must take its course of action.”, adds yet another in the march.

This silent protest march against extrajudicial killings was led by noted author and British Lingua Managing Director Dr Birbal Jha who said, “No civilized society can afford to vouch for such an insane thought of American Captain William Lynch, who however is no more in this world but the ghost of his lunacy is still engulfing and prevailing in the certain pockets of society.”

“No philosophy of law can subscribe to the act of lynching in any manner.

The government should roll up its sleeves and frame a law for the larger cause of humanity at its earliest. Otherwise, the difference between man and animal will begin to mitigate if early steps are not taken.’ added Dr Birbal Jha while addressing the masses in the demonstration march.


The social worker Dr Jha further added while addressing the gathering, “ rumours and fake news spread through social media including Whatsapp are a big concern. Intelligentsia irrespective of party politics and their affiliation to whatsoever and whosoever needs to come forth, press the button of the siren and call for Anti-lynching laws in the country.”

The anti-lynching march for a social cause began from Delhi’s Lalita Park and culminated into public meeting near Laxmi Nagar Metro station in east Delhi.

The social enterprise British Lingua, an institute of communication skills of national repute in India has worked for last 25 years and is celebrating its silver jubilee to mark the year and its outstanding performance.

The institute affords opportunities for its participation in different activities and discourses. In the twenty-five of its academic journey, British Lingua has organized more than three hundred seminars and workshops relating to human values and social studies.

Among others, those attended include a Social Worker Bishwa Nath Jha, Paresh Seth, Vedita Sachdev, Kuldeep Bhathi and Keshav Kumar.
