Responding to the allegations, the Delhi police Tweeted that Sudarshan TV has been spreading total falsehood to justify their “illegal assembly”. The Delhi police claimed that the channel was advised to organize the protest only at the designated place at Jantar Mantar to which they agreed. However, the channel went ahead to surreptitiously assemble at Mansingh Road near India Gate in violation of prohibitory orders under 144 CRPC and DDMA guidelines. “In the discharge of lawful duty, Delhi Police detained a few protesters and removed others from illegal Dharna”, wrote Delhi police.

‘Where were you during Shaheen Bagh protests’? ask netizens

Delhi police’s excesses on Hindus gathered at India Gate on November 1 to support Sudarshan TV’s cause, left some netizens infuriated. They questioned why the Delhi police had not used similar force on the Shaheen Bagh protestors.

Netizens tore into the Delhi police, accusing them of being biased. Many alleged that while Muslim protestors had blocked roads for months in Delhi Shaheen Bagh, the Delhi Police did nothing to remove that illegal assembly. They questioned the so-called appeasement policies and the Delhi police’s alleged failure to prevent the Delhi anti-Hindu riots

Netizens asked whether the Delhi police, who were quick to penalize the Hindus gathered for the Janata March, were sleeping when thousands of Muslims had gathered to stage the Hinduphobic Shaheen Bagh protest. One social media user also opined that the Delhi police, who could not catch Maulana Saad, was brazenly attacking the Hindus to hide their mistake.

It is notable here that the recent murder of a Haryana girl Nikita Tomar by a Muslim man named Tousif who was allegedly forcing her to convert to Islam and marry him has sparked a heated debate over the alleged targeting of young Hindu girls. In another case, a young boy named Rahul was murdered in Delhi recently because he was in a relationship with a Muslim girl. The girl’s brothers had beaten Rahul to death.
