BJP leader Kapil Mishra, who kickstarted a fundraising campaign to collect funds for the families who were impacted in the recent anti-Hindu Delhi riots, has managed to collect Rs 1,11,08,060, according to the figures updated on the official website of the fundraising portal Milaap.

Kapil Mishra has taken to Twitter today to reveal that the target of his fundraising campaign, which was to collect Rs 1 crore, has been achieved and that no more donations after 6 pm today would be accepted.

On March 1, the BJP leader had taken to social media to kick-start a fundraising campaign to help families who lost their loved ones in the Delhi riots. Mishra has set a target of collecting one crore while hashtag over the same #1Crore4DelhiHindu was seen trending on social media with many sharing the screenshots of the donations made.

A total of 15,483 persons made donations for the campaign with various amounts. While most donations range from few Rupees to few hundred Rupees, film producer Manish Mundra made the highest donation of Rs 10 lakhs.

As mentioned on the fundraising portal’s website, initially the goal of the campaign was to disburse Rs 15 lakh per affected family. An updated note dated March 16 on the website states that it was revised and now the initial Rs 50 lakhs collected would be transferred to the families of the deceased victims, and the amount collected beyond the Rs 50 lakhs will be distributed among the victims whose homes or businesses were damaged in the riots.

On this note, the leader stated that the campaign and the respective account will be managed by Dharma Kosh, a group of Dharmic volunteers and Kapil Mishra’s team.

Violence and anarchy had broken out in Delhi over the riots against the Citizenship Amendment Act. The violence was of communal nature and Hindus had been murdered and their property had been set on fire amidst chants of ‘Allah Hu Akbar’ and ‘Nara e Taqbeer’.

Furthermore, a gun-wielding man who fired shots at the Police was later identified as one local named Shahrukh. He had since then been arrested. However, despite all evidence to the contrary, the usual suspects on Twitter had tried hard to blame ‘Bhagwa terror’ for the ruckus. One person in particular who had come under fire from assorted liberals, political hacks and Islamists was BJP leader Kapil Mishra. They had claimed that Mishra’s speech instigated the riots at the national capital. And now again the leftist propaganda media outlets like The Print, The Quint and The Wire have advanced to target the BJP leader by insinuating that his efforts to help the victims of the Delhi riots are divisive and religion-specific.
