The Bollywood Actress Swara Bhaskar has launched an online petition on Change.org seeking the enactment of Manav Suraksha Kanoon, a law to curb the menace of mob lynching in the country.
The actress along with many other activists launched the campaign demanding a ban on cow vigilante groups making an appeal for the enactment of a Manav Suraksha Kanoon (MASUKA), which has become a daily ‘event’ in the country.
“It’s time for PM Narendra Modi to walk his talk,” reads the petition filed by actress Swara on Change.org. Swara stated “I am an actress in the Indian Film Industry. But as a conscientious citizen of India, cannot allow these lynchings to take place… I, along with thousands of young Indians, stood up against this public menace in protests that were recently held across 20 cities in the world.”
“We, together, said #NotInMyName, to such violence. Next day, PM Narendra Modi issued a statement condemning the killings in the name of gau Raksha (Cow protection). But even after vigilante violence has continued.”
