Mamata condemns lynching, says just words not enough
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said the flurry of attacks on people accused of eating beef or slaughtering cows has to stop and "just words will not do".
"We condemn killings taking place in the name of 'gau raksha' (cow protection). This must stop now. Just words not enough," Banerjee tweeted.
Her comment followed Prime Minister Narendra Modi's condemnation of killings of people in the name of "gau bhakti" (cow worship).
Addressing a gathering at the Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad, Modi said: "Killing people in the name of 'gau bhakti' is not acceptable. This is not something Mahatma Gandhi would approve."
