RECAP | Union HRD minister Prakash Javadekar retorted by claiming that mob violence must be condemned but it should not be done selectively'."When I condemn mob lynching, I do not suffer from selective amnesia like some of our opposition colleagues," said Javadekar. "In 1984, Sikhs were lynched or burnt alive, at least 3,000 of them. In 2002, Ram 'bhakts' (devotees) returning from Ayodhya were lynched in Godhra. We condemn all such incidents," the HRD Minister said. He said there were 16 mob lynchings in 2012 and 14 in 2013
