This picture will always stay with me. I'd found this page of a burned Qur'an last year in a mosque at Shiv Vihar. It is from Chapter 2, Al-Baqarah. It seems like these verses themselves respond to armed mob that burned down this mosque.
It seems like they are saying to them that you've done what you had to do and now, you'll be dealt in the assembly of almighty Allah, who will do the justice, as their English translation says:
There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut (false gods) and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
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. #DelhiPogrom
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.
