Arvind Kejriwal shouldn’t link everything with religion: Vivek Tiwari’s wife on Kejriwal’s ‘communal twist’ to Lucknow murder

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal today took to Twitter to express ‘condolences’ on the death of Lucknow resident Vivek Tiwari, who was allegedly killed by a bullet injury, fired by Uttar Pradesh Police on the intervening night of 28th and 29th September.

In the first tweet tweeted at 6:40 am, almost 24 hours after the incident took place, Kejriwal said, “Vivek Tiwari was a Hindu, then why kill him? BJP leaders are freely raping girls across the country? Open your eyes, BJP is not a wellwisher of the Hindus. To get to power, they will not think twice before murdering all Hindus.”

Kejriwal’s tweet came almost 24 hours after the UP Police had filed a case of murder (under section 302 of the Indian Penal Code) against the two policemen who shot Vivek Tiwari, who later succumbed to injuries.

A Special Investigation Team (SIT) had also been formed under the SP Crime of UP Police for a magisterial inquiry into the incident.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath also condemned the incident and said that if needed, a CBI probe will be ordered into it.

Tiwari’s death was condemned by authorities and action had been initiated against the policemen involved within hours of the incident, but Arvind Kejriwal chose to ignore all this to give it a ‘religious’ twist and take a dig at Yogi government. He then went further with the allegations and quoted Rohini Singh who is associated with The Wire, and said that the BJP does not ‘protect the interest of the Hindus’.

Rohini had tweeted at 12:45 am on 30th September, questioning whether there will be a proper investigation in the Vivek Tiwari murder, hours after the case against the two policemen who had shot at Tiwari was registered by the Uttar Pradesh Police and action has been initiated against them.

Even when Singh was questioning the Uttar Pradesh Police, Kejriwal took this opportune moment to again bring a religious twist to it. Kejriwal, however, got called out by Twitter users who pointed out his insensitivity and an attempt to communalise a crime. AAP rebel leader Kapil Mishra asked Kejriwal to get himself checked by a doctor since he seems to have gone mad in attempt to be anti-Modi and anti-BJP.

He was also reminded how many Hindus (since Kejriwal was quick to point out Tiwari’s death), are also killed in West Bengal, where Mamata Banerjee is the chief minister, whom Kejriwal refers to as ‘didi’ (elder sister).

Saner voices came together to call out Kejriwal on this.

Some even questioned whether he meant that killing of Muslims was okay?

That he threw in rape casually in a tweet to communalise and politicise a murder was also got called out.

An Aam Aadmi Party volunteer, Soni who had committed suicide in 2016, was reportedly adviced by Arvind Kejriwal to ‘compromise‘ when she complained to him about an AAP worker of sexually abusing her.

Kejriwal then tweeted how he had ‘spoken to his wife on phone’ just now.

Tiwari’s wife, however, was upset at Kejriwal’s attempt to link religion to her husband’s death.

Kalpana Tiwari, Vivek’s wife, even in time of grief could see Kejriwal’s attempt to communalise her husband’s death, but some media outlets couldn’t.

India Today published a story titled ‘Murder of #VivekTiwari: Arvind Kejriwal hits out at Yogi Government’, giving a free pass to Kejriwal to spread religious divide.

After being called out on social media, India Today quietly changed the headline and edited the article.

Other media houses, too, instead of calling out Kejriwal’s dirty, divisive politics, chose to highlight Kejriwal’s communal tweet.

It is unfortunate that the political discourse in India has come down to such a level that chief minister of a state, an elected public representative, who is an IIT alumnus and also served as a bureaucrat, has stooped to such a low level that he has chosen to communalise a murder and instead of questioning the police administration, is discussing the religion of the deceased.
