Lynchings

Although mob lynchings were considered barbaric in 1800s America and India, the difference is that they somewhat subsided in the former and not so much the latter. Lynch mobs have been always been common against Dalits violating the status quo of the caste hierarchy or Muslims for simply being Muslim.

Although in 2014, they have been occurring rather frequently and instead been used to constantly instill fear in many citizens. Because after a riot, within six months to a year, the fear dies down whereas a frequent yet unpredictable lynching of one single person keeps everyone on their feet.
