Chandni Chowk MP Dr Harshvardhan directs police to take strict action against the miscreants who desecrated the Durga temple

A witness has alleged that the AAP MLA Imran Hussain was also amongst those supporting the Muslim mob which targeted the temple.

Union Minister and Chandni Chowk MP Dr Harshvardhan visited the the site where Durga temple was desecrated this morning to take stock of the situation. Condemning the incident, he appealed for peace. The Union Minister has directed the Delhi police to take stringent actions against the miscreants who desecrated the Durga temple.

In his tweet, this morning the Union Minister said that he was disquietened seeing the idols vandalised during his visit to the temple and has assured that the miscreants would not be spared.

He said he has met the DCP and other police officers and directed them to take vigorous actions against the anti-socials who executed this sinful act. Dr Harsh Vardhan said that he could not visit the site before, as some parliamentary commitments had kept him busy, but he was continuously in touch with the police officials who kept him updated. The police have assured that perpetrators would be caught in the next few hours.

The Delhi police have, for all this while, chosen to refer to this incident of communal attack as “altercation and scuffle over parking issue”, but now, this acknowledgement by the Union Minister might compel the Delhi police to portray the incident in the right perspective.

According to locals who posted videos of the temple on social media, at around 12 am, the Durga Mandir was attacked by 300-400 people belonging to the Muslim community. Along with the temple, the houses belonging to Hindus in the neighbourhood were also targeted by the mob, the locals alleged. As of now, police has detained a few suspects, one of whom is a juvenile.

However, according to police sources, this was triggered by a skirmish caused by an argument over parking. When the argument over parking in the area became intense, some people started pelting stones. Later in the night a mob entered the temple and vandalised it. The police have confirmed that Muslim youths in the area attacked the temple.

Moreover, in the latest, a witness has claimed that the AAP MLA Imran Hussain, was also amongst those supporting the Muslim mob which targeted the temple. The witness alleged that the AAP MLA extended his support to the miscreants but no one helped them in their efforts to save the temple.

However, what is surprising is that, though the tension prevailing over the temple vandalisation moves into its third day, the Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal is yet to come out and make any statement. He has until now, maintained a stoic silence over the Chandni Chowk temple desecrating incident.
