“Another update of the disgraceful act, vandalising a mosque!” the president said in a tweet posted hours earlier. “It seems to be a reminder to Muslims of the Babri Masjid episode.” said the President in his tweet.
He further questioned the world’s ignorance over ‘this serious degradation of India’, saying that the Indian government is ‘surely moving towards genocide’.
“Stop this,” Alvi stressed. “Modi’s RSS/BJP Hindutva fascists are on a rampage against minorities particularly Muslims destroying their mosques, killing innocent people and burning their homes.”
How bad is the situation?
At least 19 people have been killed in the Indian capital during clashes between opposing protesters over a new citizenship law.
“There are 15 patients in critical condition,” the hospital official from the Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital told reliable sources, adding that a total of 19 people had now died at the facility.
The clashes, which coincided with a visit to India by US President Donald Trump, erupted early this week between thousands demonstrating for and against the new citizenship law introduced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist led government.
Critics say the law is biased against Muslims and undermines India’s secular constitution.
