    Is that a verified statement though or the imagination of someone who doesn't understand the judicial system? Rape / assault victims end up having to go through the courts (which in India is a huge pain), while vigilante "cow-protection" attacks end up killing or severely injuring people. Even in the case that it has to go through courts, there isn't a special "cow-killing" line that takes precedent over other cases, AFAIK. So then, is Ghosh advocating for mob attacks on the perpetrators of rape and assault crimes because that won't result in quicker justice either. I don't know, the statement feels ignorant.

    Quoting one of the models from Ghosh's IG post:
    Not necessarily. There are tons of Goddesses that are respected, revered, and worshiped daily in India . Nonetheless, rapes still happen. Also, "Hindus" aren't the only group responsible for crime. Try wearing a Muhammad head, and get ripped apart by the extremist-Islamic community. Try wearing a Jesus head, and see where that leads you (some Christian Indians are very nasty - just saw some news the other day of a father assaulting his son because he refused to convert to Christianity). Women (and men, and children) get assaulted, raped, and harassed. It's not a religious thing.

    Cow protection / the ban on killing cows existed under Akbhar of the Mughal Dynasty's rule, under the British East India Company, and among various rulers regardless of faith. Things have been getting out of control and it's a shady area to handle given that it can piss off the majority if misunderstood.

    That all being said, I don't accept this vigilante mob justice crap regardless if it was a human or a cow. Seriously, these so-called Hindus need to stop now.
