My parents aren't pro-Sanghi but like most moderate Hindus of DK have been infected by the Islamophobia virus. All my past attempts to touch the holy cow had hit a wall, so I was maintaining a studied silence. But today, on hearing the Umar Khalid incident, I blew my top.
My mom doesn't condone lynching, but she cites the problem of cow stealing, "How do you know it is not Muslims?" she challenges. "How do you know it is Muslims?" I asked. She has full faith in her informers.
