25 Feb 2020 Delhi: A group of at least 200 people were gathered around a Muslim cemetery armed with hammers, sickles and axes. This was just 100 metres from the Gokulpuri police station in Northeast Delhi. On one call, all of them raised their tools and struck the building’s boundary wall. The mob that demolished the boundary wall of the cemetery in Gokulpuri was then adamant to go inside and damage the graves.
“Now wait and watch. They have challenged us and we will now show them their place,” one man from the mob screamed.
“Jai Shri Ram,” they said, and struck again. There was not a single policeman in the vicinity to stop them.
A part of the mob then ran across the road and set two shops that had ‘Khan’ written on them on fire. And still no policemen, who were clearly outnumbered, tried to stop them.
