Not in my name, Not in my India. We can say it but let's be honest, there will be plenty of evasions. A lynching here, a lynching there. Did you protest that one? Did you wear a black band in that one? Where were you when that community was targeted. And what about the scores lynched when that government was ruling? Let's drop the whatabouttery and have moral clarity, that lynching is a barbaric form of expression, wherever it takes place in this country.
