A brave Hindu man shares the horror he experienced at the hands of muslims in the Delhi riots in India.
Vikas was distributing wedding invites when his brother got shot by a muslim mob. As he ran to his escape, around 400-500 Muslims pelted stones at them. He received multiple stitches on his face.
Muslims claim to be rioting against Modi’s Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which fast tracks citizenship to non-muslims being persecuted In neighboring islamic nations. However, turning India into an Islamic country is the real goal or the Delhi rioters.
“U.S. Media Covers Up Muslim Atrocities Against Hindus in Reporting on Delhi Riots”, by Robert Spencer, March 2, 2020;
Fake news is international. “Over 200 million Muslims call India home,” Bernie Sanders tweeted Wednesday. “Widespread anti-Muslim mob violence has killed at least 27 and injured many more. Trump responds by saying, “That’s up to India. This is a failure of leadership on human rights.” Bernie is, as usual, wrong. His tweet reflects the American establishment media’s position that the riots in India over the last few days are examples of Hindu violence against Muslims, but they only maintain that position by an extremely selective, misleading, and inexcusably irresponsible presentation of what is going on in India.
The disinformation begins with the establishment media description of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which is the cause of the rioting. In an article entitled “Trump declines to condemn India’s anti-Muslim law,” the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday that President Trump had “declined…to condemn India’s controversial new citizenship law, which discriminates against Muslims.” The law, said the Times, “excludes Muslims and has helped fuel a new wave of communal violence….The law passed by India’s parliament last year prioritizes citizenship for Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians while excluding Muslims.”
That’s partially true. Gulf News is closer when it says that “the Citizenship Amendment Act allows for the fast-tracking of applications from religious minorities including Hindus and Sikhs from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, but not Muslims.” Why would these religious minorities be given preferential treatment? Because they are being persecuted in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh. Who is persecuting them? Muslims. So the Citizen Amendment Act offers refuge to these persecuted minorities, and not to people among whom may be their persecutors.
What exactly is wrong with doing this? Are non-Muslims not actually being persecuted in those three Muslim countries? They are, and as The History of Jihad shows, the Islamic jihad against Hindus is a 1,400-year-old war. The LA Times’ headline shows how the charge of being “anti-Muslim” is used to intimidate and silence anyone who dares stand against the jihad or with its victims.
In reality, every nation on earth should offer a similar refuge. Muslims in India made that abundantly clear as far back as December, when they first began rioting over the CAA, throwing stones and torching vehicles. The riots got a new impetus when President Trump visited India; apparently the Muslims in India determined that the best way they could show that there need be no law protecting victims of Muslim persecution was by brutalizing innocent non-Muslims. The rioters don’t seem to be aware of the irony.
But you’d never know any of this from the media in the United States. One telling incident took place on Monday night, when a 51-year-old Hindu named Vinod Kumar was murdered by a Muslim mob in Delhi for the crime of having a sticker reading “Jai Shri Ram” on his motorcycle. The whole thing was captured on a video that went viral, featuring a crowd screaming “Allahu akbar” as Kumar is killed. But the tragic story of Vinod Kumar has not been reported in the Western media; nor have the stories of other Hindus who have been murdered by rampaging Muslim mobs.
Even worse, there appears to be a concerted effort to conceal such stories. Wikipedia has a page on the Delhi riots, but it has been systematically scrubbed of any mention of Muslim-on-Hindu violence. Compounding the impression that the violence has all been against Muslims, the Wikipedia entry on the riots features a photo not of the riots themselves, but of a Hindu leader.
Even worse, the Wall Street Journal reported that the brother of one of the people who was killed in the riots, Indian official Ankit Sharma, was killed by a mob that was chanting “Jai Shri Ram.” This was implausible on its face, because Ankit Sharma was not a Muslim, but it perpetuated the media narrative that Hindus are entirely at fault for the violence – that is, it perpetuated that narrative until Ankit Sharma’s brother himself denied the Wall Street Journal report and accused the WSJ of lying.
Maybe the Journal was just following the lead of the Leftist Indian media outlet NDTV, which was caught having edited out of its riot coverage images of a pile of stones, ready to be used as weapons, on the rooftop of a mosque. Or on the other hand, it could be that NDTV figured that if the venerable Wall Street Journal could do it, so could they.
In light of all this, it’s no surprise that Bernie Sanders would not have all the facts and rush to condemn those who are being attacked. But Bernie is not excused from the responsibility to be better informed; nor is anyone else. The establishment media is inundating us with fake news about India. Don’t take their bait.
Video transcript: many thanks to Bose for the translation:
My name is Vikas. I live in Ghonda Assembly. My brother is getting married on March 2.
We were coming back after distributing the wedding cards. My elder brother got shot. The moment we got to know our brother got shot, after we stepped out of the house, 400 to 500 Muslims were there. They were coming from the other side. They started throwing stones and firing at us.
We told him: Please, brother, don’t do this. We are innocent. We are only your neighbors. You live here; we live here. We have to live together here. But they didn’t listen. They continuously fired at us and threw stones at us. —
Did you feel that they targeted you selectively because you were a Hindu?
Yes, they were doing all the attacking, lynchings against Hindus only. There is a Temple of Lord Shiva next to my house. They came to destroy that temple, too, very near to my house. They came to destroy that temple, but they weren’t able to attack the temple fully, and then they saw us… said, “They are Hindus,” then they started firing, throwing stones.
Neighbours learned about this. Everybody came out of their respective houses. Then the situation got under control. Then we went to hospital. After that we don’t know anything about what happened.
How did you feel after watching the crowd?
The crowd really looked dangerous, like goons. Somebody was wearing a helmet; a few covered their faces with masks, looked very strange; don’t know what’s happening. We were all so afraid for our lives.
