Two identical killings with different response

On June 28, two Muslims (by name and appearance) hacked a Hindu man to death in Udaipur, live on camera !

The Congress had alleged that one of the main accused in the brutal killing of a tailor in Udaipur, is a "BJP member," obviousely BJP denied links to one of the killers.

Rajasthan government said the links of the killers of a tailor in Udaipur with radical elements in India and abroad (referring to Pakistan) will be probed  and a Special Investigation Team (SIT) has accordingly been constituted to probe the hate crime.

However, the incident which was widely condemned by entire Muslim world.

Muslim organizations and leaders like Asaduddin Owaisi, Shahi Imam, Al India Muslim Personal Law Board have condemned the horrific beheading of a man in Udaipur and have said that the murder can never be justified.

All English Editorials unanimously said Udaipur killing is 'Barbaric', 'Gruesome.'

Rajasthan administration received harsh condemnation from the opposition leaders.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres also condemned the incident and calls for the full respect of all religions and for ensuring that different communities can live in harmony and peace globally.

The killers were are swiftly arrested, or they were waiting to be arrested, whatever the Police find them in their home.

The incident not only created outrage all around, but there are debates and social media wars on the same issue.

Meanwhile the Noida (a city in Uttar Pradesh) Police arrested a man for sharing and liking a video and allegedly supporting the killing of Kanhaiya Lal, the tailor.

Modi government demanded social media firms to remove content justifying Udaipur murder.

Police have been put on alert to check inflammatory posts on social media and prevent incidents of communal violence. Police are "closely monitoring" the social media platforms and have warned people from sharing any posts which may create law and order problems or may lead to communal tension in the state.

Let us go back to 2017

A Hindu man named Shambu Lal Regar, killed a Muslim on camera in the same way, but in a more grusome manner.

Shambu Lal Regar, a Hindu from Rajasthan hacked and burned an unknown Muslim man live on camera and uploaded the horrific video on his social media platforms.

No relation, no motive for the killing… he just wanted to kill a Muslim. Police identified him through his social media profile and put him in jail.

Within three days of his arrest, he received around $3,500 donations from Hindu community to fight the legal case. Around 516 people donated Rs 2.75 lacks to his wife to hire a good lawyer to fight the legal case.

This incident didn’t reach the global space, because Indian media suppressed it.

Regar and his family received huge support, both moral and financial from the Hindu community. He was hailed as a ‘hero’ who came to save Hindutva.

In couple of weeks, Uttar Pradesh Nava Nirmana Sena a Hindutva organization offered political career to the Shambu Lal Regar. (Nava Nirmana Sena, translated as Reformation Army, is a political outfit with branches all across India).

Nava Nirmana Sena approached Regar with political offer and he accepted.

Shambhu Lal Regar was not labeled as ‘terrorist,’ and no one try to link his gruesome murder to Hinduism.

Media simply white-washed the incident. He got the bail, now while we’re reading this, probably he’s busy delivering public speeches somewhere around and managing public relation for his political career.

“Killer Shambhu Lal Regar was accepted and appreciated by the Hindu community, whereas Riyaz Atari is not accepted by Muslims world.”

All victims and all criminal are equal for real humans.

Justice or fairness have a long tradition in Indian history. Justice means giving each person what he or she deserves or, in more traditional terms, giving each person his or her due.

When people differ over what they believe should be given, or when decisions have to be made about how benefits and burdens should be distributed among a group of people, questions of justice or fairness inevitably arise.

When such conflicts arise in a society, the society is engulfed with hate against each other. Hate that is cultivated and/or supported by the government itself leads to genocide.
