2. Police inaction in JNU,
3. Police hyper-action in the case of Jamia, AMU
4. Volatile communal speeches made by top leaders of the ruling party in the course of the election camPaign,
5. Infiltrator enter’s Shaheen Bagh n threathens
7. Ultimatum by BJP leader to DCP,
8. Truckloads of bricks and stones ferried to different locations of the area.
9. Tense communal situation irrupts,
10. Areas of Delhi engulf in communal violence,
11. Part of Delhi burns for 3 days,
12. A particular religious minority been targeted,
Now let’s peel through layers of facts,
1. The area engulfed by communal violence is actually quite small in begining.
2. Shoot-at-sight orders were passed, Could this not have been done on the very first day,
3. A police DCP stood next as BJP leader provocation was being Uttered, an alert officer
4. Police was expected to keep a sharp eye out for any signs of potential communal trouble. The stocking of bricks and stones falls in this category.
5. Ankit Sharma a driver employed by IB
6. Similarly, the death of a policeman on duty- whether in stone-pelting or on account of a bullet fired is still not clear.
7. A man purportedly a Muslim now in custody, running about with a pistol in hand
8. Similarly, a Muslim individual picked up name being bandied about in a section of the media as the riot-maker in- chief? This individual may have well played a negative role,
9. No prominent non-Muslims are presumed to be under investigation so far.
Was the police really fooled? Or, did it pretend to be fooled?
