Canberra: Pakistani High Commissioner to Australia Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri this week criticized India for denying human rights and imposing Hindutva in the country.
“Credible voices even from within India are increasingly pointing to this ‘dangerous transition’. Indeed the international community can’t look the other way,” he tweeted.
he said though the Indian ruling party suspended two of its leaders over derogatory remarks to show its contrite face to the world, yet the Narendra Modi regime contrarily continues to demolish Muslim activists’ houses to pursue its ideology of Hindu supremacy.
Following the blasphemous remarks in a television debate by the BJP leader Nupur Sharma, the Muslims have taken to the streets across India. The protesters demanding stricter action against Sharma had to face police cases, arrests, and violence.
The most disturbing visuals of the police repression of Muslim protestors came from the state of Uttar Pradesh where the bulldozers were used to demolish the homes of the activists accused of organising the protests.
Owing to the massive use of the bulldozers to demolish Muslim properties in Uttar Paradesh, the state Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has been nicknamed ‘Bulldozer Baba’.
Among those whose houses were demolished, also included Afreen Fatima, a Muslim activist who had risen to prominence during the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
Fatima told media that her family didn’t get a chance to even save their belongings. She spotted drawings – cards made by her for family members – lying on the crushed slabs and chunks of concrete.
