Following the footsteps of the BJP, the newly formed Congress govt in Madhya Pradesh has invoked the National Security (NSA) Act against three Muslim men accused of cow slaughter.
The act, which is meant to be used against individuals suspected to be a threat to national security or public order, is now being used against those accused of cow slaughter.
Is cow slaughter a threat to national security? Is this how Congress is ‘different’ from the BJP?
