Cow vigilantes in India have killed at least 44 people since 2012 to 2020 over the last eight years and often received support from law enforcement and Hindu nationalist politicians, according to the reports released by Human Rights Watch and other international media organisations.
The Human Rights Watch report released in February 20, 2019 revealed the truth about Hindu nationalist vigilante attacks against cow traders and said 36 of the dead were members of India’s large Muslim minority. About 280 people were injured in more than 100 attacks between May 2015 and December 2018.
An editorial in The New York Times dated May 28, 2017 stated that BJP is partly to blame, as they have stoked inflammatory rhetoric over cow slaughter. Web Desk
