NE Delhi Violence: Conduct An Independent Comprehensive Inquiry And Bring The Real Culprits To Justice – SDPI

Mohammad Shafi, national general secretary of Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) asked the authorities to conduct an independent comprehensive inquiry into the North East Delhi violence in February 2020 and bring all the culprits to justice.A charge sheet filed by the Delhi Police has brought out a WhatsApp group discussion of the perpetrators arranging weapons and ammunition to kill Muslims, and proudly declaring that Muslims were killed and thrown into drain.The violence in Delhi was triggered by the provocative speech by BJP leader Kapil Mishra. Several other BJP leaders including a Union Minister and a Woman leader had fuelled hatred towards Muslims, before and during the violence.The Union Government, instead of booking the perpetrators, have been indiscriminately arresting Muslims, the real victims of the violence, and the anti-CAA activists and Muslim students accusing them of planning the ‘riot’; and slapping the draconian UAPA on them. At the same time the real perpetrators were provided high security and personal protection.Mohammad Shafi demanded that based on the clinching evidences of inciting and executing Muslim genocide in Delhi, the real culprits be arrested and prosecuted and the fake cases of riot-planning against the anti-CAA activists and Muslim students be withdrawn.
