Another wave of anti-Muslim attacks struck India again committed by Hindu extremists by attacking and destroying 800 homes and two mosques in Assam, including eliminating India’s Muslim leader Ali Ittehadul Assaduddin Owaisi in New Delhi.
The residence of a member of the Indian Parliament (MP), Assaduddin Owaisi, in New Delhi was vandalized on Tuesday evening by a group of Hindu Sena men. On Wednesday, the perpetrators reported on Indian Express broke doors and windows, damaged the nameplate, threw an axe at the house, and called the Parliamentarian a jihadi.
Owaisi accuses the Hindu Sena radicalization of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to be responsible for this.
According to the New Delhi deputy commissioner of police (DCP) Deepak Yadav, five people have been arrested at the crime scene. All of them are from the northeastern area of Mandoli city.
The head of the Indian-Marxist Communist Party (CPI-M), Sitaram Yechury, expressed his concern over this incident in a tweet and saying that this must end.
The Indiana Express report said that at least 800 Muslim families in Assam’s Darrang district were evicted due to the state government’s efforts to fight “illegal encroachment”.
After the BJP-led Hindutva government destroyed their homes, these displaced families, consisted mainly of the elderly, women, and children, are now evacuating by setting up tents on the banks of the Brahmaputra river.
Two mosques were also martyred in this inhuman incident.
Violence also broke out in the city of Mewat, Haryana state, where a young Muslim man was beaten with an iron rod after refusing to shout the slogan “Jai Shri Ram.” He was later accused of lying while trying to report the incident at the police station. The young man was also forced to file a statement that he was under immense pressure to file what the police called a “false report.”
