After Modi’s rebuke to cow vigilantes, Mandsaur women begin fight for justice
The two Muslim women who were publicly beaten by cow vigilantes in Mandsaur have reached Bhopal and complained to rights' bodies about the assault.
The women--Salma and Shameem, said that after PM Narendra Modi said that most of the cow vigilantes were involved in hooliganism, they felt optimistic and have now come to knock at the doors of the Women's Commission and Human Rights Commission.
"Modi ji said that Gau Rakshaks are involved in unlawful acts. We felt good and thought that it was time we should seek justice", they said while talking to journalists in Bhopal on Tuesday.
The women were beaten by Bajrang Dal activists near Mandsaur railway station. They were carrying meat but it was not beef. Still, the vigilantes attacked t hem and beat them up on the false charge that they were transporting beef. The lab report confirmed that it was not beef.
"It was such an incident that a chill goes down the spine when think about it", said Salma. The women reached Bhopal on Tuesday. "Now that PM has spoken out, we have come here for justice".
The women alleged that they were being threatened and were asked to withdraw the FIR. They would also go to the Police Headquarters (PHQ) to lodge a complain with DGP and also to the Chief Secretary.
They went to State Commission for Women, MP Human Rights Commission and the MP Minorities' Commission. Also, if they get an opportunity they might present their case before the Governor too.
