SRINAGAR, JULY 18: Welcoming the Supreme Court’s direction for a separate law for curbing lynching menace in the country, senior Congress leader and former union minister Prof Saifuddin Soz on Wednesday said it was a great relief to people, particularly to down trodden, including minorities.

In a statement issued, Prof Soz said, “The Supreme Court’s judgment on widespread menace of lynching in the country, asking the Central government to initiate immediate steps for enactment of a separate law for punishment for this crime, has come as a great relief to the people of India, particularly, to the downtrodden including minorities.”

He said it is a measure of great relief when the court described the situation in the country as extremely bad and observed strongly that there can be no shadow of doubt that the authorities have the principal obligation to see that vigilantism, be it cow vigilantism or any other vigilantism, does not take place.

 

“It is further a matter of great relief to the nation that the Supreme Court has passed this strong judgment at a time when Parliament is in session”, he said in the statement.

He alleged that if the government had paid any attention initially, it would not have become a widespread menace

Srinagar, April 23: Alleging that Prime Minister Narendra Modi wanted to promote propaganda for 2019 Lok Sabha elections by trying to bring Pakistan, Kashmir and whatever suits his imagination, senior Congress leader and former union minister Prof Saifuddin Soz on Tuesday said reasons being given for stopping Cross-Line of Control (LoC) trade were highly untenable and indefensible.

“PM Modi wants to promote propaganda for Election 2019 and tries to bring in Pakistan, Kashmir and whatever suits his imagination”, Soz said in a statement here.

He alleged that since everything is happening at the behest of Prime Ministers Office (PMO), stopping the LOC trade between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad all of a sudden, is seen by the trading communities on both sides, as part of a “trickery” aimed at the Election-2019.
