Context: Recently, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) informed the Lok Sabha that the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) discontinued data collection on mob lynching, hate crimes and cow vigilantism.
Why does NCRB discontinue the collection of data?
About Mob Lynching
Combined effect of various factors: A combined effect of political, socio-economic, and psychological factors have led to a situation of hyper-reactivity among large populations even in rural areas and small towns.
Poor Law and order: Most lynchings have occurred in remote areas, on highways, or in the countryside.
Religion-based: The lynching of Muslims, especially on the pretext of “saving cattle” has apparently been on the rise in recent years.
Government initiatives to deal with this
Creation of Nodal Officers: Central government has asked states to appoint a nodal officer in each district to prevent the incidents of mob violence and lynching.
Creation of Two High level Committees: Two high-level committees were constituted by the Central government to suggest ways and legal framework to effectively deal with incidents of mob violence and lynching.
