So here is a brand new #ThinkinThread with some interesting dates and facts. The dates of Rajiv Gandhis Assassination and The founding of the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation.
Rajiv Gandhi died on 21 May 1991
Rajiv Gandhi Foundation founded 21 June 1991
It was a very shocking and tragic death, and it shook the entire nation. I can only imagine the shock the family might have been under. Yet in 30 days there was a trust in place.
In those days, any Trust or Section 25 Company (now it is Section 8 Company) took more than a month to be founded. It is possible that due to the name and influence that it carried, Rajiv Gandhi Foundation would have taken a bit lesser, but not less than 20-25 days.

When you know the people and the faces behind the so-called protest you also know about what is the motivating factor behind them trying to burn the city down. #HinduphobicJamia
Now that you know who they are, do these graffitis make more sense to you? Along with the arson?
