#NotInMyName: Indians protest against 'beef lynching'

Thousands of Indians are due to protest against rising attacks on Muslims and Dalits by vigilante cow protection groups. Protests are being held in 16 Indian cities and also in London, Boston, Toronto and Karachi, protest organiser Saba Dewan told the BBC.
