He also demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should come to the House and clear his government's stand on the issue. Hindus are even killing Hindu, Muslims are killing Muslims in Jammu and Kashmir. However, Opposition parties like the Congress, Trinamul, Left and AIMIM accused the BJP-led government of encouraging groups behind the violence by cow vigilantes.

Kharge said "Hindustan" should not be allowed to become "lynchistan", replying that violence in the name of religion and cow protection began only after BJP assumed power.

He alleged that the Modi government was against minorities, Dalits and women, saying these sections had borne the maximum brunt of mob violence.

He said, Prime Minister has repeatedly condemned the incidents and warned of stern action against the guilty. "The government keeps saying it wants Congress-free India, I want to ask, do you want to make a Muslim-free India as well", Roy said, provoking protests from BJP members.

He accused the opposition of politicising mob lynching and communal violence and its vocal MPs of adopting double standards by remaining silent on instances that took place in their own parties-ruled stated.

Minister of state for home affairs Kiren Rijiju said it is the responsibility of state governments to deal with such crimes.

The debate was taken up on Monday after a meeting of the Business Advisory Council on Thursday.

Kharge said organisations such as the VHP and Bajrang Dal were involved in such incidents that would become a major threat to the nation's integrity, and alleged that BJP-ruled Jharkhand and Madhya Pradesh had become centres of mob lynching. This money could be their seed money to get another loan, but now you have totally damaged rural economy.

When asked by opposition members whether government has set up "concentration camps" for them, he said no concentration camps have been established by the government but the refugees themselves have concentrated themselves there.

Accusing Hindutva outfits of being behind the incidents, Mr. Kharge sought to know what the Prime Minister would do to stop them. He said, the House should unanimously pass a resolution condemning all such incidents. "The more you malign us, we become stronger".

He said the lynchings were "planned", and mentioned Pehlu Khan, who was killed in Rajasthan in April when he was transporting cows with all valid documents, and other victims of mob lynchings. "If we can't raise it in Parliament then what are we doing here?"
