✍By M.K. Venu, The Wire (http://buff.ly/2on7GBu):"On Saturday a group of men drawn from militant Hindutva parivar outfits like the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Bajrang Dal and Hindu Yuva Vahini, which was founded by Adityanath himself, attacked the Fatehpur Sikri police station in Agra, pelted stones at police personnel and slapped the deputy superintendent of police who had filed an FIR against some of their activists (terrorists) for assaulting and robbing a Muslim vegetable vendor.
Local BJP leader, Hemant Tiwari, was also present. The audacious attack by Hindutva [terrorists] shows how emboldened the right-wing forces have become after the BJP’s landslide victory in UP.
Ironically, this incident happened just after the new director general of UP police, Sulkhan Singh, took over on Saturday and warned of tough action against cow vigilante groups who break the law.
What happened in Fatehpur Sikri is not an isolated incident. Just two days earlier, on April 20, a communal riot broke out in Saharanpur in which dozens were injured and the house of a senior superintendent of police, Luv Kumar, was attacked by a mob led by a local BJP MP.
The senior superintendent of police (SSP) told the TOI on record that BJP MP Raghav Lakhanpal Sharma had led the mob to his residence and incited them to vandalise the place. The police officer’s family was still inside the house and in a state of panic when this happened. The mob vandalised the property and broke the name plate and CCTV cameras installed outside the SSP’s house. The BJP MP has been named in the FIR.
How do these two incidents square with the BJP’s claim that Adityanath is very strong and resolute on the law and order front? Will Adityanath proceed against the members of the BJP, Bajrang Dal and Hindu Yuva Vahini who have been named in the two serious cases of mob violence which occurred in the past one week?.." 🔽 CONT'D IN THE COMMENTS BELOW 🔽
