Days after Harsh Mander’s video of openly inciting the Muslims to hit the streets to protest against the court and government went viral, the controversial activist has now categorically asked the Shaheen Bagh protesters to end their stir. As per a report in Times Now, Mander asserted that Shaheen Bagh protest needs to be withdrawn as it was used as a trigger by RSS and its affiliates to perpetuate hate campaign against the Muslims, of which the Delhi riots was the direct consequence.

According to Mander and company, Shaheen Bagh protests have become a tool for the RSS and their affiliates who are using it to propagate ‘hate against the Muslims’. The Times Now report says that in a video released on 27 February, Mander has asked the Shaheen Bagh protests to withdraw their demonstrations, claiming that the protests which caused a massive inconvenience to people in Delhi were exploited by Hindu groups to peddle their hate against the minority community.
Another ‘secular-liberal-intellectual’ Saba Naqvi has also just tweeted that all protests must be withdrawn due to the coronavirus scare.
Due to the need to be safe and avoid crowds this is the right time to withdraw all protests. Thank you. #AntiCAAProtest #CoronaAlert— Saba Naqvi (@_sabanaqvi) March 13, 2020
The ED has been probing the funding behind the Delhi riots and Shaheen Bagh protests. It was already reported that radical Islamist organisation PFI had collected over 120 crores to orchestrate anti-CAA protests. Recently, PFI Delhi president and secretary were arrested in this regard.
Days after the Delhi riots, as media focus shifted to riot-affected areas of Delhi and Delhi police action, Shaheen Bagh started losing steam. As media attention dwindled, the protest site started losing the crowd.
It is notable here that despite the Muslim mob blocking a busy highway for months, descending onto the streets damaging public property and injuring, killing people, ‘activists’ and the leftist media cabal has been trying relentlessly to portray Muslims as the victims. Harsh Mander’s NGO Karwan-e-Mohabbat has been linked with Shaheen Bagh protests and has called people to join the protests in the past.
The Delhi riots were orchestrated by groups with a vested interest to time it with US President Trump’s visit to the city. Many reports have found extensive preparations, hoarding of stones, petrol bombs and mass mobilisation among the Muslim community to attack Hindus in their neighbourhood. The Delhi police and ED are already probing the links between culprits and their financiers.
Earlier, Harsh Mander, a controversial left-wing ‘activist’ was seen inciting mobs to hit the streets to protests against the country. In what appears like an attempt to create anarchy and violence on the streets of the country, Mander said the time has come to decide our fate on the streets as he indirectly called for the dismantling of public institutions in the country.

In an undated video, Mander was heard saying how there is no scope of secularism in Supreme Court, especially after the Ayodhya verdict. Speaking to a gathering in Delhi, the foreign-funded activist was seen inciting the mob, calling them to descend on streets to decide for themselves based on the show of the strength. Mander claimed that time has now come for people to hit the streets as both the Supreme Court and parliament have failed them. The apex court had then taken suo moto cognisance of Mander’s provocative speech.
