Terming the incidents of lynching and rapes as acts against humanity, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today urged states to take stringent action in such cases.

Alluding to mob-lynching while replying in the no- confidence vote, Modi said "the incidents of violence are against the basic principles of humanity. I once again urge the states to take strict action in such cases," Modi said responding to the opposition charges during the debate on the no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha.

The government came under considerable fire over the incidents of mob-lynching, especially in the name of cow, across several parts of the states.

Earlier in the day, Home Minister Rajnath Singh, while speaking on the lynching incidents, said the Centre will provide all assistance required, but the state governments should take stringent steps to curb such incidents.
