OPINION: Delhi Muslims refuse to be provoked by multiple shooting incidents by right-wing Hindus ahead of elections, determined to defeat BJP gameplan

By Danish Ahmad Khan

New Delhi: With only four days to go for Delhi assembly elections, right-wing Hindutva party BJP is leaving no stone unturned to polarize and provoke Muslims in the national capital through multiple shooting incidents in Okhla suburb by its footsoldiers.

Multiple shooting incidents recently took place in Delhi’s Okhla constituency, where the prestigious Jamia Millia Islamia university and Shaheen Bagh, face of common Indians’ outrage against the recently passed CAA and proposed NPR-NRC, are located. 
Apparently buoyed up by the hate speeches of Central minister Anurag Thakur and a BJP parliamentarian Parvesh Sharma directed at Shaheen Bagh protestors in the Jamia Nagar area, the Hindutva agent provocateurs indulged in a series of shooting incidents. In as much as 4 days at least 3 shooting incidents took place in quick succession. The shooters said that they will teach Shaheen Bagh protestors a lesson and prevent Kashmir-like situation in Delhi. 

Middle-class and marginalized section of the vast Indian populace are in open rebellion protesting against the discriminatory Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) passed by the Parliament on December 17 last year seeking to offer naturalized citizenship rights to non-Muslims from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan, while excluding Muslims on religious grounds.

Delhi Muslims refuse to be provoked

Delhi Muslims at the Shaheen Bagh protest site say that this is nothing but a devious gameplan by the ruling BJP at the Center to win Delhi elections by polarizing the society by dividing Hindus and Muslims. Despite multiple shooting incidents, Delhi Muslims have said that they are not going to be provoked by such mischief and fall into BJP trap. In fact, one of the protestors told Indian Muslim Observer that BJP’s gameplan will be foiled and Aam Admi Party (AAP) will once again be voted to power.
A political analyst said that BJP wants Muslim votes to be divided between Congress Party and AAP. But, Congress Party is currently weak and nowhere in the race. Even the voters of Congress Party are highly likely to switch sides at the last minute and vote in favour of Kejriwal’s AAP, which has done remarkably well for the welfare of the people of Delhi during the 5-year stint in power, particularly on electricity, education and healthcare fronts.

‘Civil War in the offing’

Meanwhile, senior Congress Party leader Digvijay Singh said that India is being allegedly pushed towards a Civil War after the rancour and hate speeches against Muslims by top BJP leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

He said that while the Hindutva goons are allowed to roam and shoot freely at the people in Jamia Millia Islamia and Shaheen Bagh protest sites, Delhi Police remains a mute spectator to the utter lawlessness. He also slammed Delhi police for 'inaction' on the multiple shooting incidents, and asked government to take remedial steps before it is too late.
