Inflammatory slogans at Jantar Mantar: Was this why Rakesh Asthana was made the police commissioner asks Congress Digvijay Singh
On Sunday (August 8, 2021), allegedly provocative slogans were raised in Delhi’s Jantar Mantar area. There they raised anti-Muslim slogans during a march “against the laws of the colonial era”. Some videos related to the sloganeering have also surfaced, in which some people were raising slogans with threats related to harm to Muslims.
The rally was called on the call of Supreme Court lawyer and former Delhi BJP spokesperson Ashwini Upadhyay under the banner of “Bharat Jodo Abhiyan”, in which hundreds of people attended. Shipra Srivastava, media in-charge of the Bharat Jodo Movement, said, “The colonial laws used by the British to suppress Indians were opposed, which still exist. We were there against those laws and Uniform Civil Code because we demanded that there should be one rule in one country.”
He claimed, “To my knowledge there was no such (provocative) slogan… there were 5,000 people and if five-six people are shouting such slogans in any corner, we distance ourselves from them.” At the same time, a senior police officer of New Delhi district said that after being told about the DDMA guidelines, we had refused permission. Later it was revealed that Upadhyay was searching for a place for the event in a closed space. The police arrangements were complete, as we had thought that 50 people would come, but slowly small groups started gathering. They were protesting peacefully, but when they parted ways, they started raising slogans.
New Delhi DCP Deepak Yadav said about all the videos related to sloganeering, “We are investigating the clips.” Meanwhile, sharing some videos related to sloganeering on social media, some people said that there is a conspiracy to throw Delhi into riots again. Poisonous slogans against Muslims were raised near the Sansad Marg police station. The most dangerous is that the police have not taken any action. The media is also silent. On this, Congress leader Digvijay Singh said, “Is Rakesh Asthana made Delhi Police Commissioner because of this?”
Delhi Police officials have registered a case under relevant sections of the law after allegedly raising provocative slogans in the form of an event titled “Make Colonial Law and Uniform Law” near Jantar Mantar in Delhi yesterday, Delhi Police officials told news agency ANI. Went.”
