ABP journalist expresses concern for anti-CAA rioters, wonders how will poor rioters pay for damaged public property

Deputy CM Maurya also attacked Congress and Samajwadi Party for supporting the violent mobs in the state during the anti-CAA protests. Maurya also said that anti-national elements will not be allowed to commit violence in the name of students and accused radical Islamic organisation PFI of instigating riots in the state by disguising as 'protestors'.

The desperation of media to whitewash the crimes committed by Muslim mobs during the anti-CAA riots by humanising them was once again on display after ABP journalist Shobhna Yadav questioned UP government’s decision to make rioters pay for damaging public properties and referred them to as ‘poor’.

On Thursday, at ABP Shikhar Sammelan 2020, Uttar Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya spoke on the anti-CAA riots that took place in Uttar Pradesh in which Muslim mobs unleashed extreme violence on police officials and damaged public properties.

Responding to the allegation of the police excess against the rioters in the state, UP Deputy CM Maurya said that the police of Uttar Pradesh showed restraint despite they were attacked by the rioters. He reiterated that the government will not accept any kind of violence. The innocent will be treated with respect and anyone who has indulged in violence will not be spared, he added.

However, the ABP journalist was quick to humanise the Muslim mobs by stating that the rioters belonged to ‘poor’ families and could not afford to pay for damages. She questioned the government on how will they make those ‘poor’ pay for damaging public properties in the state.

Responding to this, Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya shot back to say that that Uttar Pradesh will not discriminate between rich and poor while adding that the government intends to make the rioters pay for the damage irrespective of their financial background.

Keshav Prasad Maurya also reiterated that the Muslims of the state are not afraid and stated that they have full faith in PM Narendra Modi and CM Yogi Adityanath. Maurya also added that the Muslims are being benefited by the schemes rolled out by the BJP government and they will continue to receive benefits without any discrimination.
