Abstract

Lynching as a phenomenon is not new but deep rooted in different civilizations. Lynch law is believed to be enacted in 1782 in America by Charles Lynch in the village Lynchburg (Virginia). But this issue being as old as the law which might have been persisted long before than the law itself exists and has been a matter of discussion not only in America but in different countries like Israel, Afghanistan, Europe, South Africa etc. In India, several such incidents have been noticed but such lynching has spiked in the recent times. By observing several incidents and by drawing a comparison in America and India; where the cases of lynching in America is due to the race alone. In India, the reasons vary from race, religion, case or as fickle as a widely spread social media post.
