New Delhi: Politics has been hot in Mangolpuri area of the capital after the killing of Bajrang Dal activist Rinku Sharma late on Wednesday night.
Chief spokesperson and MLA of Aam Aadmi Party Saurabh Bhardwaj has alleged that Hindus are also no longer safe under BJP rule. There were apprehensions about security within the Muslim community earlier under the BJP rule, but now Dalit, Sikh and Hindu society is also feeling insecure.
Saurabh Bhardwaj said that the Union Home Minister is allowing the killings of Hindu children for his political gains. This is very embarrassing. Amit Shah should resign from his post taking responsibility for all other incidents including the Rinku Sharma murder case. At the same time, the Aam Aadmi Party demands that all the culprits should be punished with the harshest by exposing the mindset that is behind this whole conspiracy.
Saurabh Bhardwaj, while addressing a press conference at the party headquarters on Saturday, said that inside Mangolpuri area in Delhi, some people attacked a family and brutally murdered their young son Rinku Sharma.
“Many questions arise in this. As an MLA and a resident of Delhi, a lot of worries come out in my mind. Our Delhi was not like this, what has happened to this Delhi. When BJP came into government, Muslim society often thought that we are not safe under BJP rule. Now their rule is getting 6 years and now there are hundreds of examples that Dalits are not safe. There are hundreds of examples of this in other states including Gujarat and Delhi,” Saurabh Bhardwaj said.
“If the daughter of a Dalit is raped inside Uttar Pradesh, then the entire Yogi government stands with the rapists. The daughter of that Dalit does not get so much respect that her family members burn her funeral pyre. His corpse is burnt at night with petrol. His brother is charged with murder. In such a situation, there was a big concern within the Dalits that we too are no longer safe under the BJP rule,” he added.
“Over the last 1 month, in January and February, the BJP has shown hatred against the Sikh community. The way in which BJP workers have attacked Sikhs and farmers, they have been termed as traitors and extremists. Many Sikh people living in my assembly say that these people will riot, we can get them killed. We will target people.”
Referring to an incident hat happened a few months ago, he said, “Rahul Rajput used to teach tuition inside Adarsh Nagar. He was brutally murdered in this manner. I also met him at his house. The lady friend who was with Rahul Rajput belonged to another community. Rahul was killed in front of that girl.”
