Sharjeel Usmani’s hatred against Hindus
Sharjeel Usmani, a known Islamist hatemonger, had used an unfortunate crime in Haryana to peddle hatred against the Hindu community. Usmani had attempted to communalize an ordinary crime in Haryana and had used derogatory words against Lord Ram, saying people who chanted ‘Jai Shree Ram’ were nothing but terrorists.
In a tweet, Newslaundry columnist Sharjeel Usmani had said that Hindus who chant “Jai Shri Ram” are most likely terrorists.
The crime which Sharjeel Usmani used to defame Hindus is suspected to be a case of personal rivalry. One Asif was murdered during a clash between two groups. Only recently, the group Asif was associated with had attacked members of the other group. However, Usmani not only peddled misinformation by communalising the incident but also hurt the sentiments of Hindus by using derogatory words against Hindu slogans.
Sharjeel Usmani has a record of instigating communal passions and hatred against the Hindu community. He had earlier celebrated the death of Aaj Tak news anchor Rohit Sardana.
