Muslim men accused of transporting cows for slaughter killed in India

Muslim men accused of transporting cows for slaughter killed in India
 
At least 10 Muslim men have been killed in attacks by mobs over suspicion of eating beef or smuggling cows since 2015 Sanjay Kanojia/AFP

In India, cows are protected by the constitution -- inline with many Indian religions which hold cattle tobe sacred. In some states, it is illegal to kill or eat cows, in others it’s allowed, and in others it’s carefully regulated.

But in the past two years, over a dozen people have been killed and scores have been injured as mobs attack people, usually Muslims, who are accused of transporting or killing cows.

Murali Krishnan reports from northern India on the country’s cow vigilantes.
