5 April 2020, Delhi: “We will not let any Muslim enter our lanes,” a man, who is also shooting the video on his phone can be heard saying. He is a part of a group of men sitting in a tight circle on a public road that runs through their colony of Shastri Nagar. The group is specially checking each vendor as they pass by, asking their names, seeking Aadhaar cards, and warning the ones they suspect of being Muslim against entering the colony. The video, posted on Facebook has also asked everyone else in the city to follow them and not allow Muslims to enter their neighborhoods. “Request you all not to let any Musalmaan enter your lanes. Ask their names, and if he is a Musalmaan chase them away. They are spreading a mess,” says the man. He then starts harassing an innocent vendor passing by demanding that he returns with his identification papers the next day, “else we will not let you enter this lane, understood?” The scared vendor identifies himself as a Yadav and is told to bring his Aadhaar card as proof. Another is told to get lost from the neighborhood and also return with an Aadhaar card. “Else do not come here, you will get beaten with sticks otherwise,” threatens the man making the hate video. He proudly shares how he “caught'' a vendor who called himself Misra, but “turned out to be Muhhamed Imran. We beat him up and chased him away” he repeats his ‘request’ that others follow his violent example. The local residents claimed initially that they had sought to place a blanket ban on Muslim vendors; however, later it was decided that only known vegetable and street vendors would be allowed to enter the neighborhood.
