Jagmeet Singh, leader of Canada’s New Democratic Party on Thursday expressed his concern about the rising threat of violence against Muslims in India, after the Ramnavami celebrations led to violence and rioting.
The Ramnavami celebrations this year turned into grave incidents of communal violence in almost 9 Indian states.
In a tweet, Singh said: “I am deeply concerned about images, videos, and targeted threats of violence against the Muslim community in India. The Modi govt must stop stoking anti-Muslim sentiment. Human rights must be protected. Canada must play a strong role in working towards peace everywhere.”
During the Ramnavami celebrations, minorities (Muslims) were mocked, harassed and beaten by the Hindu devotees. Petrol bombs were hurled in the Muslim areas. Several mosques were targeted while mobs played high-decibel songs while passing the places of worship.
Violence was reported from MP, Gujarat, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Goa, Mumbai, Delhi and other states of India.
In Madhya Pradesh’s Khargone area, the Mosques and religious shrines were set on fire while police remained a mute spectator.
A day after the Hindus attacked and demolished the homes, shops and other religious properties of Muslims, the authorities conducted a demolition drive in Khargone.
