‘cow vigilantes’ to show bravado by making a particular Dalit community as their "soft target" Ahmedabad: Police detain members of Dalit Community File Photo PTI The incident of beating up of seven Dalit youths in Mota Samadhilya village of Gir-Somnath district last week has triggered large scale protests across the state The protests worsened on Wednesday as seven youths attempted suicide with violence and arson spreading to various places in the state An eight-member fact finding team comprising Dalits from various city-based NGOs including Dalit Adhikar Manch which went to the village from here a few days back found out that the incident was brutal as the alleged beating of youths started from 930 AM and continued unabated till 130 PM and inspite of the victims’ kin repeatedly calling police the latter allegedly did not act The team members said that Dalits are "soft targets" for these vigilante groups Dalits are actually not involved in slaughter of cows but are only doing their traditional business of leather while they (vigilante groups) refrain from confronting those involved in slaughter they said There is a particular Dalit community that deals in the trade of leather In Gir-Somnath and surrounding districts of Gujarat these self-appointed cow protection committees have come up in the name of saving cows said Kaushik Parmar who led the fact finding team to the village "We have found out that this inhuman incident of beating Dalit youths was not one off From last many months these particular community members have become target of these cow protection groups" Parmar said "There have been at least three such incidents in the past two months in the area when the Dalit community members were beaten up by these so-called cow vigilante groups All those are related to skinning of dead cows" he said "Earlier such cow vigilantes used to target those who are involved in cow slaughter But since last seven to eight months they have started targeting Dalit community members who are involved in leather business and are soft targets to show off their bravado It has been noticed that these groups in the past few months attacked Dalits when they were involved in skinning of dead cows" he said "Instead of targeting those involved in slaughter these groups started targeting Dalits" charged another fact finding team member Subodh Parmar "One farmer whose cow was killed had called this family (Dalits who were beaten up in Una last week) to dispose of the dead cow They (victims) took the dead cow outside the Mota Samadhilya village and were skinning it when about 30 to 35 people of cow protection group came and started abusing and beating them" Kaushik Parmar claimed "The beating continued from 930 AM to 130 PM The family members of victims and others called up police but it did not turn up" they said The accused themselves made the video footage and also had a group photograph clicked after doing the act they said The fact finding team members have demanded that the state should ban such cow protection groups "Such cow protection groups should be banned across the state There is already a law against cow slaughter in the state then what is the need of such vigilante groups" Kaushik Parmar said The team has also demanded that police should add IPC section related to criminal conspiracy in the FIR registered in connection with the Una incident Written by Minxin Pei | Published: September 15 2012 2:25 am Related News In a normal countrytop leaders rarely disappear without an explanation The answer is simple With the scrutiny from political opponents and a vigilant pressmysteriously vanishing from public view is not just technically difficult but also self-destructive Voters simply would not want to be governed by leaders who evaporate at will There is another explanation for political transparency in a normal country The ruling elites enjoy a much higher sense of security Since all normal countries pick their leaders through competitive elections at regular intervalselected leadersbarring serious misdeedscannot be removed from office Such political security makes secrecy unnecessary and counterproductive But the luxury of political security is not something available to rulers in less normal countries those run by autocrats Despite their apparent monopoly of powerself-appointed rulers in all societies live in perpetual fear of losing office Their fall from gracejust like their rise to the topdepends not on established and respected rulesbut on backroom bargains among oligarchs that can change on a dime Even the most senior officials in such regimes can be cashiered This insight helps us understand the current curiosity surrounding the mysterious disappearance of Xi JinpingChinas heir apparentfrom public view in recent days After making an important speech in Beijing on September 1Xi abruptly cancelled meetings with visiting foreign dignitariessuch as US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Singapores Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loongwithout providing any explanation After more than a week of unexplained absence from public viewXis whereabouts have become a hot news item around the worldas well as the centre of speculation and rumour-mongering Although he was quoted in the state media a few days ago and the latest reports say he will make a public appearance on Sundayguesses about what has happened to Xi run from sensationalism to informed speculation In all likelihoodXi is indeed suffering from some unnamed physical ailment that requires medical attention The possibility that he has been the victim of another power struggle at the top is almost nil There is ample ground to think that it is genuine illnessnot political demisethat has kept Xi from public view since September 1 Recent signs of personnel shuffling at the very top of the Communist Party indicate that Xi is gaining the upper hand For instanceone of his trusted political allies has replaced a close follower of Hu Jintaothe incumbent party chiefas the equivalent of the chief of staff of the partys central committee The size of the standing committee of the politburoChinas top decision-making bodyis likely to be cut from nine to sevenallowing Xi greater control over policy-making than Hu has had over the last decade After the party suffered humiliating embarrassment from the purge of Bo Xilaithe former party chief of Chongqing municipalityit probably has no desire to inflict another wound on itself Purging an heir apparent on the eve of the scheduled transfer of power may have been routine when the supreme dictatorMao Zedongran the show But todaysuch an act is too horrible for the partys own sake even to contemplate What is illuminating about this episode is the fragility of political power in contemporary China FirstBeijings handling of this incident shows a regime not only out of touch with reality but also deeply fearful of the potential consequences of revealing the truth Facing an onslaught of media attention and public curiositya government that is confident and capable should be forthcoming about the unexplained absence of one of its most powerful officials After allXi is a human being and thus vulnerable to physical hazards as everyone else But Chinese authorities reacted with behaviour and language reminiscent of a sclerotic late-Soviet type communist systemadmitting nothing and denying almost everything The result is predictable Instead of effectively calming the anxieties of the Chinese people and the international communityBeijing allowed a relatively minor incident to mushroom into a crisis of confidence and a frenzy of rumour-mongering Another point one may make about this episode is about the lack of political security for the occupants of the highest office in China Granteda top leaders health is a legitimate topic of public discussion in any country In a more normal countryleaders have no choice but to let the public know how fit they are and then let the political process decide whether they are fit to govern In an autocracyby contrastthe health of the rulers is a top secret of the state One explanation is thatbecause these systems follow the rule of mennot of lawthe failing health of the top ruler undermines confidence in the regimes stability Another plausible explanation is that any revelation of the health of the top ruler or heir apparent can cast doubt on the legitimacy of the rulers In the case of Xiopening up his medical record to the public will most likely set off a spirited political debateboth inside and outside the party The debate might centreinitiallyon his physical fitness for occupying the top slot in the Chinese government This discussionhowever innocent of political malicewill soon touch on the most fundamental issue: the legitimacy of the succession process itself Such a discussion will put the party on the spot it will have to answer very difficult questions about Chinas secret succession process If there is one thing we know about autocratic regimesit is their dislike of impertinent questions But we now live in a world in which rulers must answer difficult questions Based on Beijings response to ours regarding Xis whereaboutsone has to wonder whether the ruling elites of the largest country in the world are
