Last week, a man was lynched to death because rumours had it he had eaten beef. The police did not investigate who had attached him but whether it was indeed beef he ate. Outraged commentary has followed as well as soul-searching on the direction India is taking.
Having just blogged about teaching moments for peace education, I asked some of our friends how they would talk about this horrible incident in their classes or to their children. No one has responded so far. But I just read this article by Natasha Badhwar and decided to share it here.
