India’s top court calls for new law to curb mob violence by Hindu families

NEW DELHI: In India, Supreme Court has asked the government to enact a new law to deal with an increase in mob violence and lynching by Hindu families that have reportedly killed more than two dozen of people in the country this year.

A three member bench held hearing on a number of petitions seeking direction on checking mob violence by Hindu cow-protection vigilantes targeting Muslims over suspicions of beef consumption and cattle slaughter.
