New Delhi: Three women who bore the brunt of mob lynching will stage a protest in front of the residence of Home Affairs Minister Amit Shah on October 15.
Women who participated in the Press meet to announce their decision included Rajani Singh, widow of police officer Subodh Singh who was killed in a mob lynching in Bulandshahr, Fatima Nafees, mother of missing JNU student Najeeb and Sangeeta Singh, mother of Sahil, who was killed in Delhi mistaking his name for that of a Muslim.
The march will be conducted with the slogan, “Answer, Amit Shah,” by the forum, United Against Hate.
Talking to media, Rajani Sigh said the criminal who murdered her husband would not be allowed to be nurtured into a politician.
She showed pictures of BJP lawmakers welcoming the main accused in the murder when released on bail.
Sahil Singh’s mother said her son was killed following an argument about parking a bike. He was killed after his name was mistaken for that of a Muslim.
Twelve people were involved in the murder, she said. Although all names were given to the authorities, police arrested only two.
Delhi police under Amit Shah didn’t show up at her home yet, she said. Fathima Nafees decided to march to Shah’s residence as her waiting for the missing son completes three years.
