The Mob attack on MLA Rumi Nath in Assam.

Who is Rumi Nath? Why was she attacked so badly along with her husband by a band of 100 odd muggers? Apparently, according to reports she was attacked as she had married a Muslim Jaki Jakir   (her second marriage). Rumi represents the Congress party from Borkhola assembly. Both of them were attacked in a hotel at Karimganj town in Assam,on Friday night, where they were staying after Rumi married her current second husband Jaki with whom she is now pregnant too, without divorcing her first husband Rakesh Singh.
This however doesn't mean that the mob fury takes over and people start dictating terms on morality on the couple and start to beat and 'try and lynch' them. Who are these people trying to get even with an elected representative of the people. Her personal life is 'hers' and nobody let alone a mob of rowdies have any right to comment on it, much less take law in their own hands.
Both of them have received extensive injuries, and are now being escorted to Gauhati to safety. Although police complaints have been lodged only 5 people have been arrested so far. Rumi has alleged that people tried to rape and kill her. So much for the moral brigade.
As Rumi was earlier elected to the Assembly in 2006 on a BJP ticket, there is apprehension she might have been attacked by people belonging to BJP party. Speculation is also there she was attacked by a Congress faction.Whatever the truth maybe, it's atrocious. All said and done, this kind of rowdy behavior is neither tolerable nor in the interest of anyone. Should be condemned by one and all and strict action needs to be taken by the State Govt in Assam against the mob who attacked the couple.
