They’re called “cow vigilantes” – and no, they are not Lone Ranger wannabees roaming Wyoming in search of cattle rustlers. They’re fanatic Hindu fundamentalists in India, hunting Muslims suspected of killing cows.
You haven’t read anything about “cow vigilantes” in the western mass media, because American journalism -- so derided by Donald Trump as the “fake news” media – are just as single-mindedly focused on “America first” as he is.
Canadian media (and, I suspect, the European and British media) take their cue from the American media about what’s newsworthy and what isn’t.
India simply doesn’t show up on their radar, unless there’s a flood, an earthquake, or a refugee crisis.
