Anti-Muslims riots in Delhi were planned, states Minorities Commission report
July 18, 2020
NEW DELHI (92 News) – The Delhi Minorities Commission’s fact-finding report on the Northeast Delhi Riots has stated that the violence against Muslims was planned and targeted. The report says that the police was also involved in the massacre of Muslims and damage to their properties. During the violence, houses, shops and vehicles of the Muslims were targeted. Eleven mosques, five seminaries and a shrine were desecrated during the violence. The report also states that the police had helped the extremists flee after the riots. At least 53 people, mostly Muslims, were killed and more than 200 were injured in the worst communal violence in the Indian capital since more than 3,000 people of the Sikh minority community were killed in 1984. The report says: “There was ‘repeated incitement to violence’ throughout the Delhi Assembly poll campaign from December 2019 to February 2020, and there were ‘a number of speeches by BJP leaders inciting people to violence against anti-CAA protesters.” The report stated that violence broke out in different parts of Northeast Delhi after “BJP leader Kapil Mishra’s speech at Maujpur, in which he openly called for forcefully removing the protesters at Jafrabad in Northeast Delhi. The violence… was clearly preceded by a number of speeches by BJP leaders openly maligning anti-CAA protesters… making derogatory remarks laden with communal undertones and open threats of violence, and to cast the Shaheen Bagh protests in a negative light to build an ‘anti-Shaheen Bagh’ narrative," it added.
