Prime Minister Minister Narendra Modi has said that Lynching is a crime, no matter the motive. In an interview to Times of India Mr Modi said:‘I want to make it clear lynching is a crime, no matter the motive’

It may be recalled the the incidents of lynching have claimed several lives in different parts of the country in recent times

To a reply on a question on lynching and ‘sab ka saath, sabka vikas’ pledge, PM said:” It is very sad we keep hearing about such incidents. Even if one incident occurs in the country, it is very sad and needs to be condemned in the strongest voice. My government is committed to upholding rule of law and protecting the life and liberty of every citizen. Let there be no shade of doubt on this account.

Our government has issued very clear advisories to states on this issue. I want to make it clear that mob lynching is a crime, no matter the motive. No person can, under any circumstances, take the law into his or her own hands and commit violence.

State governments need to adopt effective measures to prevent mob violence and lynching, protect innocent citizens irrespective of caste, creed, place, time and religion, and take stringent action as per law against the perpetrators of such violence. I also expect that everyone — society, people at large, government and government functionaries and political parties — have a duty to fight this menace.

In order to formulate appropriate measures to address the situation, the government has also set up a high level committee chaired by the Union home secretary to deliberate in the matter and make recommendations. We have also constituted a group of ministers headed by the Union home minister to consider the committee’s recommendations”.
