Chandigarh: Dal Khalsa on Monday condemned Delhi Govt for arresting Jamia Millia Islamia University students and activists, who spearheaded protests against the amendments to the Citizenship Act, and demanded from the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to instruct the administration to not indulge in witch-hunting.
Joining issue with the PM that the corona virus knows no religion, caste, the organization said the BJP generated communal virus do knows and accused PM Modi of double speak only to hoodwink the international audience.
Notably, Northeast Delhi witnessed attacks on Muslims between February 23-26, killing 53 people and injuring hundreds. The police were accused of either inaction or complicity in the violence mainly against Muslims.
Jamia students Meeran Haider and Safoora Zargar, have been arrested by the police for their alleged role in provoking violence while organising protests against the CAA.
“The country right now is reeling through a grave crisis as a result of the novel coronavirus and nearly a month long lockdown,” said the party spokesman Kanwar Pal Singh. He further said they have learned that over 50 students’ from Jamia have been served notice by Delhi Crime branch in connection with the violence.
This is pure act of vengeance on part of the Home Minister Amit Shah, who controls the reins of the police force in the national capital. The Govt is punishing and jailing all democratic voices across the country during lockdown, said he.
He said there’s a clear design behind the arrests as the Govt knows in its guts that there would be no public backlash from any quarter because of the nation-wide lockdown.
“While people of the country were being asked to stay home in order to break the chain of the deadly virus, we are shocked to know that in the midst of such a grave situation, the Delhi Police arrested two students of Jamia Millia Islamia and detained several activists from localities of North East Delhi who participated in peaceful protests against the CAA.”
