#HindutvaBurnedDelhi #DelhiPogrom

"They burnt our mosques, they burnt the Quran and even drank liquor inside", said a visibly moved Farhana. No one could hold their tears. Everyone kept crying in the hall. It was the third day of our relief at Mustafabad.
The next day I went to Madina Mosque at Shiv Vihar. The visuals were as if a wrath has been unleashed by monsters. The hindutva goons blasted the mosque with gas cylinders, even the fans melted down with the heat. After the fire cooled down, they came again to drink liquor there.
Empty liquor bottles and burnt pages of Quran lied everywhere on the floor. I took a burnt Quran with me as a grim reminder of what secularism does to minority in the country. This picture narrates the hypocrisy of the secularism of the country we reside in.

Deadly violence in India’s capital.. hasn’t ended with the anti-Muslim pogrom that it was. It continues in the politics of being termed a riot, an old tactic of flattening the gigantic power inequality between the country’s Hindus & Muslims @IrfanHindustan thepolisproject.com/violence-after…

"It was a nest I finally built for my wife and six children after a lifetime of struggle," says Mr Munazir. "It was the only thing I wanted in life, it was my only dream come true."

The dream ended in flames on a bright, sunny Tuesday morning last week.
#HindutvaBurnedDelhi
Munazir's house was looted and torched by a mob of masked and helmeted young men, who swept into the mixed neighbourhood. They were armed with staves, hockey sticks, stones and bottles filled with petrol, and were chanting "Jai Shri Ram".
Millions of dollars worth of property was destroyed. And there's mounting evidence that Muslims were targeted in a planned manner, with numerous well-documented examples showing some police aiding the rioters, or simply looking the other way.

North East Delhi state sponsored Pogrom.
Where majority Muslims martyred.
One of my friend was is Delhi (Shiv Vihar). Where he witnessed the ravage done to the Ms homes, shops.
#HindutvaBurnedDelhi #DelhiPogrom
So the Hindutva group's sorrounded the Ms area (Galli), from all sides. And they entered from each side so that no one would escape from there. And they all were carrying rods, sticks, stones and petrol bom.t
They all had the support of Delhi Police. Even if Ms called out for help to the Police, they were disregarded.
My friend went to one hospital to look for someone. When he got there, there were many people injured and critical too.

Speaking at @UCLA about #RSS, its importance, its violence & its origins:

"Violence in which RSS is implicated includes assassinations, bombings & even pogroms against Christians, Muslims, & anyone who stands up against its xenophobic agenda."

Full vid:
@UCLA "It’s no surprise that the #RSS is responsible for such shocking violence considering its ideological ties to European fascism.... The correlation between fascism in the West and Hindu nationalism in the East traces all the way back to the paramilitary’s origins in the 1920s."
@UCLA “'Traditional muscle power of the #BJP has always been the #RSS,' said a former US ambassador to India. Its role is much broader than that, tho. Today, the RSS doesn’t just provide boots on the ground to help win elections — it pulls the strings of the party’s elected officials."
