Modi govt at war with Muslims, says Alvi

President Arif Alvi on Monday expressed outrage at the brutal tactics being adopted by the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to crush student protests in the Indian capital New Delhi after a controversial citizenship bill was passed by the parliament last week, sparking riots and violence.

In a message posted on Twitter, the president shared a video of an unidentified girl who narrates the ordeal of a group of girls beaten with sticks by the police on Sunday at a mosque inside the Jamia Millia Islamia university.

Violent protests have spread across India after the successful passage of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019, in the Indian parliament. According to the new law, India will grant citizenship to people of numerous faiths fleeing persecution from neighboring countries, except those who are Muslims.

On Sunday, more than 100 activists protesting against the new law were injured in Delhi as they clashed with police who used tear gas and baton charges to disperse demonstrators. By Monday morning, the protests had spread to several university campuses across India, suggested reports.

In the message shared on Twitter, President Alvi wrote: “Out of 1000s of messages that have come out of India since y/day, I am tweeting this one particularly as this girl cries & narrates the brutal police action on girls inside the mosque at Jamia Milia Univ in Delhi.”

“Modi Govt is at war with Muslims using fascist Hindutva barbarism,” the president added, echoing the comparisons made by top Pakistani leadership to describe the actions of the Indian premier.

Last week, Prime Minister Imran Khan had also compared Modi to former German chancellor Adolf Hitler.
