The violence in Mainpuri in Uttar Pradesh once again highlights how the issue of cow slaughter is being utilized to target the minority community.

I write to draw your attention to the Meerut case in which a personal relationship between two consenting adults was converted into a criminal matter of rape and forcible conversion by Hindutva organisations. The young woman has now given her statement before the magistrate in which she has clarified the facts of her consensual relationship and that she was pressurized by her family members who in turn were being used by the Hindutva forces even reportedly bribed by them,..........In these circumstances it is essential to take immediate steps to release the innocent men and women from jail.
