Modi’s Gujarat Model Reaches Delhi: Mosque Set on Fire, Hanuman Flag Hoisted on Minaret

13 people including a policeman have been killed and at least 150 injured since violence erupted in Delhi clashes amid Trump’s visit, according to CNN.

DESPARDES — A mosque  was set on fire and  Hanuman flag was placed on  its minaret late Tuesday afternoon in Ashok Vihar locality of North East Delhi — India’s capital.

A mob shouting “Jai Shri Ram” and “Hinduon ka Hindustan [India of Hindus]” paraded around the burning mosque, and a “Hanuman flag” was placed on top of the building, according to the TheWire.

Commenting on the incident, India watcher Khaled Almaeena, a Saudi Political and Media Analyst said “the act of entering a place of worship and desecration is vicious. The RSS thug who brazenly and with police protection goes up and cheered on by a murderous crowd has defiled Ghandij’is philosophy. Modi and others have shown the true face of the BJP government. It also proves who were behind the Gujarat massacre”.

“India is on the brink of disasters which it may never recover..I truly hope secular Hindustan will resist this fascism”, Almaeena added.

Police personnel could not be seen in the locality. Residents alleged that police had removed members of the Muslim community from the locality.
