Radio Mirchi RJ Sayema took to Twitter to incite a mob to take to protest outside the Delhi Police headquarters. She incited people on Twitter to gather in large mobs outside the Delhi Police headquarters to ‘protest peacefully’ against ‘violence by Delhi Police’.
Delhi Police had to resort to violence after protestors at Jamia Nagar, where Jamia Millia Islamia university is located, set buses on fire and raised communal slogans.
She later clarified that the mob needs to gather outside the old headquarters of Delhi Police at the ITO.

Following the tweet, netizens asked the radio channel Radio Mirchi whether the company also endorses her views.
Hey @RadioMirchi, please clarify if this is your official stand. If not, immediately sack this Bigot organising mob for violence.
