Cow vigilantes terrorising Dalits, minorities: Yechury

Communist Party of India (Marxist) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Saturday demanded a complete ban on gauraksha samitis, or cow protection committees, saying they were terrorising Dalits and minority communities on the pretext of cow protection. He said the National Democratic Alliance government was permitting these vigilante groups to promote communalism and polarisation.
