Delhi: The Delhi Minorities Commission on Saturday claimed, through a notice sent to Commissioner of Delhi police, that a mosque was attacked and burnt in Alipur in North West Delhi on Friday night. It has also issued a separate notice to the commissioner claiming that Muslim boys are being randomly arrested for the February violence in Northeast Delhi.
In a notice issued on the Commissioner of Delhi police today, the chairman of the panel, Zafar-ul Islam Khan stated that the Commission has received a report and a video which says that at around 8 pm on April 3, around 200 people attacked a mosque in Mukhmelpur village under the Alipur police station in North West Delhi while there were two or three persons inside.
The notice said the mob attacked the mosque, ransacked it, burnt it partially and demolished some of its parts, including the roof. The attacker were allegedly shouting that the spread of Coronavirus cannot be stopped until all the mosques were not demolished a local Urdu news daily Inquilab reported. It further said that it was unbelievable that this could happen in the national capital. “The issue cannot be patched up artificially by arranging a compromise where a religious place has been ransacked and partially burnt and demolished. If no proper legal action is taken, this lawlessness will become common,” the Commission cautioned.
