Anti-BJP ecosystem including journalists spread edited CCTV footage to claim police attacked students in Jamia library

By pinning the blame on the Delhi police and the Modi government by using purported videos, the 'liberal-secular' media and left-wing establishment tried to absolve Muslim mobs for the crimes they perpetrated on the police during the anti-CAA riots.

On Sunday, the Jamia Coordination Committee (JCC), which includes students and alumni of the Jamia Millia Islamia, released a purported CCTV footage in which some people with police uniforms were seen caning students allegedly in the library on December 15 during the anti-CAA riots that took place inside the university campus.

The 49-second video purportedly shows some seven to eight people alleged to be police personnel entering the Old Reading Hall and beating ‘students’ with lathis. The video was released by the JCC in the early hours of Sunday.

Interestingly, Jamia coordination committee, which has released the video on twitter is not even an officially elected body. It is formed after the December 15 riots and has been forefront at organising anti-CAA protests inside the university campus as well as at Shaheen Bagh, Khureji and other places.

As seen in the above video, the ‘students’ are sitting with closed books on the desks when police personnel are seen entering the library. The ‘student’ on the right suddenly puts up a handkerchief mask (20 seconds into the video) on his face just before the police enter the library. The ‘student’ on the top left corner is also wearing a handkerchief across his face while standing against a wall.

As soon as the JCC released the purported video, the ‘liberal-secular’ journalists jumped on to the scene to spread their false propaganda by claiming that it was Delhi police who first attacked the students resulting in further provocation inside the campus. By pinning the blame on the Delhi police and the Modi government by using purported videos, the ‘liberal-secular’ media and left-wing establishment tried to absolve Muslim mobs for the crimes they perpetrated on the police during the anti-CAA riots.

CJ Werleman, known for his anti-India and anti-Hindu propaganda used these edited videos to further is false agenda against the Narendra Modi government.

RJ Sayeman, known anti-Hindu propagandist and fake news purveyor, also took to Twitter to absolve the crimes of Muslim mobs at Jamia by pinning blame on the Delhi police.

Many ‘journalists’ echoed these sentiments.

Patanjali Varadarjan alias Tunku, Editor, Hoover Institution, too, took time off to abuse the Delhi Police.

Another lady named Smita Sharma, who claims to be both ‘independent’ and ‘journalist’, could not hold up her excitement as she began to foul mouth the Delhi police. She claimed that Delhi Police have permanent blot and declared that there can be no justification for the so-called brutality.

Rana Ayyub, the Islamic troll masquerading as a journalist, went a step ahead and edited out the masked ‘student’ on the left side of the video altogether.

However, the video which is released by the JCC has been carefully edited out and is being spread across the social media to peddle half-truths against the Delhi police personnel.

Meanwhile, another video has come to the fore where anti-CAA rioters could be seen setting a bike on fire.

At around 4 seconds in the above video, one can see a man in blue-black sweater with red and white stripes on his sleeves set a bike on fire and run away. In the video released by Jamia Coordination Committee, a man wearing similar sweater hides his face with a handkerchief. He appears like the same man on the extreme right which Rana Ayyub has meticulously cropped out in her video.

Anti-CAA riots in Jamia Millia Islamia university:

The controversial Jamia Millia Islamia University in Delhi had emerged as one of the epi-centres of the anti-CAA agitations being perpetrated in the name of ‘peaceful protests’. The students and Muslim mob associated with the Jamia Millia Islamia University had unleashed violent protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act.

In December, the protests against CAA and NRC had turned violent amidst chants of Allah-o-Akbar and Naara-e-Taqbeer. The Muslim mobs had burnt four DTC buses, 100 private vehicles and 10 police bikes and pelted stones, injuring several policemen.

Following the riots, the Delhi police had registered an FIR against six people including four local politicians and a former Congress MLA was also named as suspects related to Jamia violence. The Delhi Police had named former Congress MLA Asif Khan as one of the accused in its FIR.

The other six accused persons were identified as local politicians Ashu Khan, Mustafa and Haider, Kasim Usmani – a member of the CYSS, the student wing of Delhi’s ruling Aam Aadmi Party, AISA member Chandan Kumar, SIO member  Asif Tanha, a member of the Students Islamic Organisation of India.

The Delhi police had also arrested 10 people with criminal background in connection with the Jamia Nagar riots that took place in the national capital. The ten arrested people were identified as – Mohammad Hanif, Danish alias Jafar, Sameer Ahmed, Dilshad, Shareef Ahmed, Mohd Danish, Yunus Khan, Jumman, Anal Hassan, Anwar Kala.
