The world must know the truth: Delhi unrest was a genocidal anti-Hindu riot, not the other way around By Radhika Singh

Jihad Watch : With a death toll of fewer than 60, the Delhi unrest has been exalted
as a Muslim “pogrom” by politicians and comedians alike.
anti-Muslim mob violence,” says Bernie Sanders. India’s Prime Minister

So it’s about time the world knows what went down in Delhi from
February 23 to March 1, 2020. In November 2019, the Indian government
formulated the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), a law to grant
citizenship to persecuted Hindus who have taken refuge in India from
neighboring Islamic countries: Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan
(which were once part of undivided India).
This act of kindness was not perceived well by the Muslims who
constitute about one-third of the country’s population. Violent
demonstrations flooded the roads, railway stations were attacked, trains
wrecked, buses set afire. Muslim youth such as Sharjeel Imam encouraged
his followers to cut off Northeast India from the mainland. Muslim
politicians such as Waris Pathan, in communally charged speeches, said
“15 crore Muslims were more than a match to 100 crore Hindus.” Still,
the Hindus didn’t reach for weapons.
In Delhi, an ocean of Muslim women and rabid anti-CAA demonstrators
blocked a Muslim-dominated neighborhood, connecting the city’s major
areas. They demanded the rollback of CAA, a law that didn’t alter the
status of Indian Muslims in any way, shape or form.
This prolonged gathering made the lives of daily commuters
insufferable. 44-year-old Mayawati’s critical condition deteriorated
further as protestors didn’t let the ambulance pass through Shaheen
Bagh. Imagine the busiest thoroughfares of your city being blocked for
months, cutting you out of your workplace, schools, hospitals, and more.
That is what Delhiites were being put through.
On February 23, BJP leader Kapil Mishra gave a verbal ultimatum to
women who had been squatting at Shaheen Bagh in Delhi for over two
months. The next morning, a pro-CAA crowd arrived at the site and
refused to move until the anti-CAA mob disbursed. The scuffle gradually
led to, what should be known as, the genocidal anti-Hindu riot in Delhi.
But there is something about the way they have mastered the art of
attacking, and then playing that famed victim card. Every genocidal
attack on the Hindus in this part of the world, by their Muslim fellow
citizens, has attracted massive sympathies for the latter. It happened
in Gujarat, in Kashmir, and now it was happening in the national
capital. Reckoned as a “Muslim Pogrom” by liberal media worldwide, the Delhi
unrest was actually an anti-Hindu riot orchestrated by Muslims for days,
if not months of calculative planning. Muslim mobs baying for Hindu
blood were out on the streets; they came prepared with weapons.
A gun-wielding rioter, Mohammad Shahrukh, opened 8 rounds of fire and
stood firm, pointing his pistol in the face of under-equipped police
personnel. After his pictures went viral, a senior journalist from the
liberal camp, Ravish Kumar, tried to sell him as a Hindu, Anurag Mishra.
But alas! He was arrested, and his identity was revealed also. One of the first victims of these mobs was 20-year-old Dibar Singh
Negi, who worked in a sweet shop. After his hands and legs were chopped
off with swords, he, still alive, was tossed inside the shop already set
aflame, to be charred to death. American politicians don’t care about
this unspeakable brutality, because it was done to a Hindu by the
On February 25, the dead body of 26-year-old Intelligence Bureau (IB)
officer Ankit Sharma was recovered from a sewer. As per postmortem
reports, Sharma was stabbed 400 times over a period of 4 to 6 hours, by
multiple people. His intestines were torn apart. Forensic doctors
shivered, saying they had never seen such mutilation in their lives.
Eyewitnesses state that a ferocious Muslim mob had dragged Ankit to the
house of a local Muslim leader, Tahir Hussain. Video proofs of Hussain’s
rooftop littered with stones, petrol bombs, acid emerged soon after.
An unruly Islamist mob sheltered at Hussain’s house attacked
neighboring Hindus with stones and country-made bombs, vandalized a
Shiva temple, and ruined the wedding ceremony of a Hindu girl who would
address Tahir as “Bhaijaan” (elder brother). They tried blowing up the
house by setting fire to a gas cylinder, didn’t succeed, and resumed
hurling petrol bombs at people.
Hussain, who is now in police custody, has the full support of his
brethren. While the radical Islamist outfit Jamat-e-Islami backs him
unequivocally, the eminent writer-lyricist of Bollywood Javed Akhter
pulls out the victim card, asserting that the accused murderer was being
targeted for being a Muslim. The naked truth, however is that the
barbaric killing of IB Officer Sharma wins no liberal sympathy, because
he is a Hindu.
The fear among the Hindus was so intense that they cut off their
kalawas (holy string tied around the wrist by the Hindus) and removed
the “Jai Shree Ram” stickers from their vehicles to conceal their
religious identity, after Vinod Kumar of Maujpur was mercilessly beaten
to death for bearing a “Jai Shree Ram” sticker on his bike, by a
homicidal mob chanting “Allahu Akbar, Nara e Taqbeer”. His lifeless body
was dragged away from the spot, while his bike went up in flames.
Hindu establishments and properties were blown to smithereens by
Muslim mobs that came in thousands. Muslim women armed with acid and
stones attacked the city police, which had its hands tied with law and
formalities. Feroz Khan, who runs the acid factory, Deepak Bund, is
suspected of have supplied acid during the riots.
The Hindu-owned DRP school in Shiv Vihar was turned into a bonfire by
Islamist rioters, who used the Rajdhani Public School, merely 10 meters
away, as its war base. Owned by Mohd. Farooq, the rooftop of Rajdhani
school was supplied with improvised slingshots for launching petrol
bombs, and huge containers of rocks and acid. Radicals entered DRP
school through ropes connected from Mohd. Farooq’s school and ran a mad
rampage in the property, leaving classrooms, toilets and furniture of
DRP completely gutted, and an unarmed Hindu man, Dinesh Kumar, killed.
What swept India’s national capital in February 2020 was an outburst
of Islamic supremacists’ rabid odium for forces that obstructed the
establishment of an Islamic caliphate in India. There is no other
explanation of this violence wrongly attributed to the CAA, a law which
has not stripped a single Indian Muslim of his citizenship.
riots were a genocidal attack on the Hindus, and must not be propagated
