Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan on Tuesday urged Muslims to stay away from dairy business for the safety of their upcoming generations. “My request to Muslims who are in dairy business and cow trading is to stop it for the safety of their upcoming generations, at a time when some politicians are heard saying “Gai ko chhune pe bhi anjaam bhugtna hoga” all Muslims should stay away from dairy business,” Khan said, while speaking to ANI.

Azam Khan’s comments have come after Alwar lynching.
Remarks from the SP leader – a prominent Muslim face of the party – came days after a 28-year-old man identified as Rakbar Khan aka Akbar was allegedly beaten to death by a mob on suspicion of cow smuggling in Rajasthan’s Alwar district in the intervening night of July 20-21
Here is what post mortem report says-
The post-mortem report said that Khan died of “shock as a result of ante-mortem (before death) injuries sustained over the body.”
The autopsy further stated that the 28-year-old victim suffered 13 injuries in total, including eight bruises, two abrasions, a laceration, a fracture in the wrist and another in left femur.
Here is the matter (Alwar lynching)
Rakbar Khan alias Akbar was lynched to death in Alwar on Friday on the suspicion of cow smuggling. Two men including Akbar were attacked by a mob in Alwar late on Friday when they were en route to Ramgarh on foot with two cows. While his associate managed to escape, unknown locals thrashed Akbar with sticks. Later, he was taken to hospital by the police, where doctors declared him dead.
Here is what Supreme Court says
In 2017, the Supreme Court had asked all the states of the country to take stern measures to stop violence in the name of cow protection.
Recently, the Supreme Court also asked Parliament to come up with a law to tackle cow vigilantism and lynch, calling such incidents “horrendous acts of mobocracy” that should be nipped in the bud.
As per the figures provided by the Ministry of Home Affairs, at least 45 people were killed in 40 different cases of mob lynching across nine states between 2014 and 3 March this year.(Zee News)
