A sit-in demanding justice for dairy farmer Pehlu Khan who was killed allegedly by cow vigilantes

Alwar lynching

On Wednesday, as 19-year-old Vipin was appearing for his annual examination at his college in judicial custody, Sadhvi Kamal Didi met him and showered him with praise for the assault on the Muslim dairy farmer, reported the Indian Express.

Six people were arrested in connection with the murder, one of them is Vipin Yadav. Vipin said: "Nahi hai aisi koi baat (No, there is no such matter)". Similarly, one day youth like Yadav will also be known as heroes in the future for protecting cows. Koi bhi toh na jhuke, aur na hi tujhe kisi prakar ki chinta karne ki avashakta hai. If we won't do such things in our own country then where else. One shouldn't give in.

She went on to ask him about his meals: "Aur araam se achchhe se khana peena barhiya de rahe hai (Are you well and eating well)?"

In what seemed to be an encouraging tone, she asked him to speak up and share his concerns.

The sadhvi then compared him to Bhagat Singh, Chandra Shekhar Azad, and Sukhdev - icons of the Indian freedom movement. An NDTV version of this video showed the crowd chanting slogans too.

She could be seen telling Yadav "Poora Bharat tere saath mein hai, aur hum apne desh mein aise kaam nahi karenge toh kahan karenge". She is the national president of Rashtriya Mahila Gauraksha Dal, a self-styled cow-protection group where all members are women.

Further while explaining the motive behind the recorded video she said, "I wanted the message should get spread that all those who are sent to jail are not criminals".

As a report by Hindustan Times suggests she is unaffected by allegations of being the law unto herself and restoring the violence for her crusade. Earlier this month, a 55-year-old man died at a hospital in Alwar district after allegedly being beaten by a group of cow vigilantes.

Days after Alwar lynching case, the Rajasthan Police has arrested six cow smugglers from the district.
