Congress leader and Delhi municipal councillor Yasmin Kidwai has chosen to overlook the crimes allegedly committed by a Muslim mob in Delhi and attempted to whitewash the desecration of a temple in Hauz Kazi, Chandni Chowk in Old Delhi by stating that there was no attack on the temple.

On Tuesday, following the unleashing of terror by the Muslim mob on the temple, self-proclaimed ‘journalist’ Saba Naqvi surprisingly condemned the attack allegedly committed by a Muslim mob. She further stated that such acts put an entire community at risk.

Reacting to her tweet, the Congress leader claimed that there was no attack on the temple and the incident should not be communalised but should definitely be condemned and people should unite to help repair the temple.

This was a completely false assertion as photos and videos shared by people on social media clearly show that the temple was vandalised, its idols and fixtures were broken and curtains were burnt by the mob following a skirmish over parking.

As Yasmin Kidwai resorted to propagating false news and absolve the mob from their crimes of desecrating the temple, social media users schooled Kidwai with facts stating that there was enough evidence to prove that the mob had in fact destroyed idols inside the temple.

Additionally, social media users posted images and video evidence which indicated there was indeed an attack on the temple and destruction of idols had taken place inside the Durga Mata Mandir in Lal Kuan in Chandni Chowk area.

Further, social media users attacked Yasmin Kidwai for propagating fake news and deliberately forgiving the accused from their crimes as they were allegedly Muslims.

A day after the incident, startling reports have now emerged pertaining to the details of the temple attack. On July 1, a mob of 300-400 men barged into Durga Mata Mandir in Lal Kuan in Chandni Chowk area and had desecrated idols present inside the shrine.

Reportedly, the tensions in the area had increased after local Muslims supported and gathered in large numbers, who shouted slogans in favour of a fellow Muslims, who allegedly attacked and broke idols inside the temple.

One of the witnesses had even stated that few intoxicated Muslim men had gathered in their house. As people around the temple stopped them, they brought in more than 300-400 men to attack. He further alleged that Imran Hussain (AAP MLA) came and supported the Muslim mob but no one came in their support.

The priest of the temple was also heard stating that the Muslim mob would have killed them had they not closed the door of the temple from inside. The priest also alleged that the mob even abused them.
