‘Congress ko aane do, phir batayenge tum logo ko’, placard activist threatened for ‘Modi Once More’ sticker on car

Madhur, an activist who raises awareness through placards, was surrounded by some unknown men at a traffic signal in old Delhi and threatened for having a pro-Modi sticker on his car.

Sharing a shocking incident showcasing violent hatred against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his supporters, a Twitter user named Madhur has claimed that he was attacked and threatened by some unidentified men at a traffic signal in Delhi on Wednesday.

Narrating the incident on Twitter, Madhur said that he was driving through Daryaganj area of Old Delhi in his car which had a “Modi Once More” sticker on it. As he stopped at the Daryaganj traffic light that had turned red, around 3-4 people came and started banging the widows of his car and hurled abuses.

These people threatened him saying, “Congress ko ane do **, phir batayenge tum logo ko” in Hindi, which means “let Congress come to power, we will teach you folks a lesson”.


Fortunately the signal turned green and Madhur was able to escape without harm.


Later talking to OpIndia, Madhur said that he could not identify the people and fled the place as soon as the signal turned green as it was a Muslim dominated area and he did not want things to get worse, given how Modi supporters are branded “anti-Muslim”. He feared that had he protested their behaviour, the men could have vandalised his car or attacked him with knives.

“I knew that is a ‘sensitive’ area that’s why I stayed calm and didn’t react or try to record any video of the men”, he said, “It happened in the region where earlier there was a ‘lohe ka pul’. I had stopped at red signal as per traffic rules, and suddenly I heard a bang.”

“I heard them abusing me, they used ugly abuses, and then they abused Modi and his mother”, he added.

Later Madhur also posted a video of his car which showed that the vehicle was scratched by the miscreants at the traffic signal.


Madhur said that he was scared as being a placard activist his identity is not unknown. He said that he has received a lot of online threats for his placard activism. Once he requested people, through placards, to donate money to Kerala flood victims instead of spending those on buying animals to sacrifice them, and he received threats from people ranging from Kerala to Kashmir.

He suspected that such incidents (threatening people by surrounding them) were common in the area which, according to him, was evident from the fact that other people waiting at the traffic signal were silent watchers to what was happening.

“I couldn’t have gone to the local police station and risked being followed and attacked on my way. I’m lucky I could escape on time,” he said.

India refuses to endorse joint communique favouring Ukraine: How India has been advocating for dialogue and diplomacy rather than one-sided bullying

It is rather ironic that 80+ countries adopted a joint communique for lasting peace in Ukraine without inviting the other party in the conflict—Russia—to the Summit. It seemed like the only agenda of this communique was to build a consensus that peace in Ukraine must not be at the expense of territorial integrity.
