An Al Jazeera video on cow vigilantes (Hindutva nationalists) in India attacking & killing Muslims. The video is not straightforward enough in pointing out that the motivation is not the welfare of cows but the persecution of Muslims. In the US under Jim Crow (the US form of apartheid), lynchings of Black men were widespread ostensibly to protect white women from allegedly sexually rapacious Black men but there was no noticeable improvement in the violent & misogynist treatment of white women by the lynchers. It wasn’t about the women & it isn’t about the cows. It’s about justifying persecution.
