The Quint| Parliament Reassembles; US Killings & Lucknow Encounter Rock LS

Members in the Lok Sabha today expressed grave concern over hate crimes against Indians in the US, with opposition parties questioning PM Narendra Modi’s “silence” on the matter and the government saying it was being “viewed seriously”.
In the recent weeks, at least two Indians have been killed in suspected cases of hate crime in the US.
Leader of Congress Mallikarjun Kharge accused the government of “failure” in raising the issue with the US, saying the recent spate of racial attacks was deeply disturbing and Modi and his government had “failed”, as neither have they condemned the incidents, nor taken up the issue with the US at a high level.
Saugata Roy (Trinamool Congress) said the government does not seem to be interested in protecting the interests of Indians in the US.
Both Kharge and Roy said hate crimes have seen a rise since Donald Trump took over as the US President.
Members thumped desks when the Home Minister Rajnath Singh lauded Saifullah’s father Mohammad Sartaj for his refusal to accept his son’s body saying “if he could not be loyal to the country, how can he be ours”.
“The government is proud of him and I am sure Parliament too is,” he said.
