Members of National Campaign against Mob Lynching (NCAML) meet to finalize the draft of Manav Suraksha Kanoon

New Delhi. To address the issue of mob lynching and taking the cause forward, the members of National Campaign against Mob Lynching (NCAML) are meeting tomorrow in the capital to finalize the blueprint of Manav Suraksha Kanoon (MASUKA). MASUKA is aimed at formalizing a law in India against lynching, to curb such instances and suitably punish the guilty. Last week, youth leaders - Tehseen Poonawalla, Shehla Rashid, Kanhaiya Kumar and Jignesh Mevani had jointly launched a sustained campaign against the cultural terrorism in the form of mob-lynching in Delhi. Condemning the recent mob lynching incidents that have happened in Rajasthan and Jharkhand, Mr Tehseen Poonawalla said, “On 1st June, 25-year old youth was thrashed and tortured by an angry mob in Churu by relatives of a girl with whom he allegedly had an affair. The most infamous mob lynching in recent times was perhaps that of Mohammed Akhlaq in Dadri on the unfounded suspicion that he had stolen and slaughtered a calf. Last Sunday, a group of Tamil Nadu animal husbandry department officials and truck drivers who were transporting cattle from Jaisalmer in Rajasthan to Shivaganga in Tamil Nadu were attacked by Gau Rakshaks - cow protectors in Barmer. Earlier, 55-year old Pehlu Khan was attached brutally by cow protection activists in Jaipur in April this year and Khan succumbed to the injuries. A similar incident came into light in Jamshedpur where seven people were lynched in two separate incidents — four at Raj Nagar and three at Nagadih who were suspected to be child lifters. Here we are crying for help against the incidents, the government is not taking action to punish those who are involved. This is indeed an alarming situation and there is an increasing need for a formal law against mob lynching in India.” “Mob lynching has surfaced as a great peril to the society. Not only is this phenomenon creating mistrust in the society, it is also a huge question mark on the authority of the government and the state, the police and the rule of law. While we, as a society, share the onus of ending this social menace, the government has the biggest stake in ending the rule of violent vigilantes because their actions negate the existence of the government. We strongly condemn this and will do everything possible to eliminate the evil practice.”Added Mr Tehseen Poonawalla.
The drafting committee is working on the draft of the law which they would submit to the government. Members of the drafting committee include: 
1. Sanjay Hegde (Senior Advocate at Supreme Court of India)
2. NiveditaMenon (Professor of political thought at Jawaharlal Nehru University)
3. Anil Chamadia (Columnist and media educationist)
4. SwaraBhaskar (Actor)
