lynching india

Qasim, a Muslim man, was lynched by cow vigilantes on June 18 in Hapur.
"It’s like he never existed, it’s as if nothing happened."
"They have transformed Muslims into a thing, into the other, into a statistic, into a numerical figure."
A mob of hundreds rained blows and punches on the middle-aged woman.
To begin with, we need a proper definition of lynching.
