From the Editor's Desk defines 'to lynch' as 'to put to death, especially by hanging, by mob action and without legal authority'. While technically correct, Indian media has done everyone a huge disservice by referring to recent 'cow related' murders as lynching, a term that somehow understates the fact, that such killings are nothing but murder! The #NotInMyName movement is a sign that occasionally people can come together and show the right direction, when both ruling and opposition parties have failed to understand what really matters. Stop killing our countrymen!
