“Prayers with Muslims of Delhi who are facing Islamophobic Hindutva mobs along with highly communalised police force just because they are demanding the equal citizenship rights, dignity and justice.

Kejriwal is an emerging soft Hindutva icon, so it is futile to expect anything from him apart from passing the buck.

This “both sides” bullshit propounded by some journos is a hypocritical device to deny the elephant in the room: hatred against Muslims has become mainstream in India and is an existential threat to them.

There are stories though of Hindus in some areas protecting their Muslim brothers and taking out joint peace marches which fills one with hope, however bleak, about the future of humanity in this region. More such efforts need to be made and encouraged.

It is not the time of equating victims with aggressors, it is time to stand for the oppressed especially if you belong to the majority community. One hopes and prays that the designs of hate mongers come to naught and humanity lives another day. Aameen.”
