Ahead of the much anticipated Supreme Court judgement on the Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid dispute, there are attempts being made by radical Islamists to incite the Muslim population by making provocative statements.
Rana Ayyub, an Islamist troll masquerading as a journalist had on Friday resorted to inciting the Muslim populace of the country by fear-mongering ahead of the Supreme Court of India.
Ayyub, who is notoriously known for her fake news peddling and constant anti-Hindu anti-India narrative, tweeted that Babri Masjid was a ‘monument of faith’ for Indian Muslims, which was ‘demolished’ on 6th Dec 1992, by ‘those in power today’, implying that BJP was behind it. Furthering her hate-mongering, she claimed that demolition of Babri Masjid changed her life and a generation of Muslims who were ‘othered’ overnight.
“I hope my country does not disappoint me tomorrow”, said Ayyub in an attempt to divide the Muslim community and incite them on the eve of Supreme Court’s judgement.
Tomorrow is a big day for India. The Babri Masjid, a monument of faith for Indian muslims was demolished on 6th Dec 1992 by those in power today. It changed my life and a generation of Muslims who were ‘othered’ overnight. I hope my country does not disappoint me tomorrow.

The Uttar Pradesh Police which has been on high alert to clamp down on social media posts which trigger law and order situation took notice of the hate-mongering post of Rana Ayyub and asked her to delete the ‘political’ comment she had made. The Amethi police also warned her of action, if she fails to delete her post.
Rana Ayyub who often preaches morality and democratic values on social media did not delete her hate-mongering tweet. However, Amethi Police did get a lot of trolling by the so-called ‘secular liberals’ for asking Ayyub to delete her tweet.
What section of the IPC prevents @RanaAyyub from making a “political comment”?
By this measure all ‘political analysts’ on tomorrow’s tv “debates” better beware https://t.co/EsDoJiBh67

This verified, state sanctioned account is trying to intimidate journalist @RanaAyyub and is emboldening trolls to go after her.
Will you sit by and watch or take action? https://t.co/1IFMkBwNOX

This tweet is being inundated with overtly genocidal responses, and the Amethi Police station is openly threatening the journalist. It’s getting seriously dark on Twitter. https://t.co/dZCSLQSJcb https://t.co/p1fCgVVC5P

While Rana Ayyub seemed unperturbed by Amethi Police’s request to delete her tweet, their social media handle went ahead and deleted their own tweet. If that was not enough, Rana Ayyub further shared a screenshot showing that she had been blocked by Amethi Police. Why would an official social media handle of a District police administration block a journalist, especially one they had just asked to delete her tweet citing law and order issue, is not clear yet.
Instead of Rana Ayyub deleting her tweet, @amethipolice has deleted their own tweet. LOL
Also they blocked her & now @RanaAyyub trolling Amethi Police ??

While Rana Ayyub is still claiming victimhood over the Amethi Police’s tweet, continuously retweeting tweets of her supporters slamming the Amethi Police for ‘threatening a journalist’ it is indeed puzzling why they had first warned, then deleted the tweet and have now blocked her.
