Ahmad also urged Singh to ask states to handle such

situations with "heavy hand" to enforce sense of security among the minorities in all seriousness.

Meanwhile, Poonawalla, who had filed three petitions before NCM over incidents, involving cow vigilante groups in Mewat and also Gujarat, today appreciated the Commission for taking up the issue before the Centre.

He also demanded the NDA government to act "decisively against such groups" which spread terror among Dalits and Muslims.

Listing such incidents including the mob lynching of a Muslim person for allegedly consuming beef in Dadri last year, Poonawalla demanded the Centre and state governments to ban them "like any other terrorist group".

"If the BJP government protects these groups as they are affiliated to Sangh Parivar, I will approach Supreme Court to do the same," he said.
