India is a hub of innovation and now creativity is in its peek. Many talents are emerging every day. Am not talking of the CEOs of top notch companies but the creative minds behind the communal violence. There is a silent plan going on to tag Hindus as murderers. Recent event titled “Not in my name” is an example of it.
The population of Muslims in India is 14.2% but 15.8% Muslims accounts to the criminals in the jail. Apart from this 20.9% Muslims are under trials. According to the latest data on prisons by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), in 2015, in states such as Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu, the percentage of Muslims in the incarcerated population was almost thrice the percentage of Muslims in the overall population.
In Maharashtra again, this gap is the widest. Muslim convicts make up to 20% of the convict population in Maharashtra’s jails. In all states, the share of Muslims among convicts is higher than their share of population. Tamil Nadu, were Muslims make up 17% of convicts, and Rajasthan, with 18% of such convicts. These two states have 16% Muslim undertrials each.
In north India, Bihar fares well, the data show that the population of Muslims is 17% but he state had 18% jail inmates from the Muslim community.
In Delhi Muslims are 13% but they account 22% of undertrials in jail and 19% of convicts. In MP, with a share of 7% in population, Muslims made up 13% of undertrials and 10% of convicts.
So this is the reality but the journalists both from India and international, target only Hindus. BBC has been busy targeting only Hindus. BBC can see the lynching of Aklaq and Pehlu Khan but not several Hindus.
BBC also projected that under Modi rule, Hindu outfits are given free hand to attack and kill Muslims. But why don’t BBC say that any personal rift between Hindus and Muslims is given communal colours?
