We must guard against growing intolerance in our society and speak out in one voice to condemn these acts of mindless violence, said Rahul Gandhi.

NEW DELHI (IANS) — Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday condemned the lynching of a tribal man in Kerala and said people must guard against growing intolerance in society and speak out against such acts of mindless violence.

“I am deeply disturbed by the savage and cruel lynching of a tribal in Kerala yesterday (Thursday), captured on camera,” Gandhi wrote in Twitter.

“We must guard against growing intolerance in our society and speak out in one voice to condemn these acts of mindless violence,” he added.

The Kerala Police on Saturday said it has arrested nine more persons in connection with the murder of a 27-year-old “mentally unfit” tribal man, who was attacked in a forest near Palakkad by a lynch mob for alleged theft.

Madhu, who was attacked by the mob on Thursday evening, later succumbed to severe injuries in the head, ribs and chest.
