The extreme right wing government of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in Utter Pradesh has unleashed the state power against Muslims for protesting against Citizenship Amendment act (CAA). The Utter Pradesh government has declared a war on Muslims. The UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath vowed to “take revenge” on people protesting against the controversial Citizenship Amendment Law. He has ordered the police to use the excessive force to crush the resistance and protests against the CAA. The police have targeted the Muslims in a state wide crackdown. The police are acting like a personal force or private militia for Yogi Adityanath who is known for his anti-Muslim views.
The property of each element involved in this violence [protest] will be confiscated, and used to recover compensation for public property which was damaged. All their faces have been identified. They are visible in the videography and CCTV footage. We will take revenge by confiscating their properties, I have ordered strict action,” the UP chief minister was quoted as saying in Indian Express on December 20.
What has followed since the fiery statement in Uttar Pradesh is a widespread and brutal crackdown on Muslims on a scale not seen in recent decades. Media reports have methodically documented arrests, deaths and assaults. The police is harassing the innocent people and making them scapegoat.
According to the local journalists and media, the police are busy in ransacking the properties of Muslims including the shops- vehicles and houses. The police are entering the houses of Muslims without warrants and torturing the females and children. It is a war like situation for many Muslims in Utter Pradesh. The fascist government of Yogi Adityanath has made the lives of Muslims miserable as they are facing state terrorism and persecution.
The Utter Pradesh police have killed nearly 20 people in its violent crackdown against peaceful protestors in different cities. The police fired live bullets directly aimed at the protestors. The police have so far booked thousands of protestors under different sections. More than 5000 people have been detained or arrested in Utter Pradesh. Even the minors have been arrested and booked under emergency laws.
In Kanpur city alone, police have registered cases against 21,500 people, according to Anant Deo, the city’s top police officer. Though, the police have denied firing at protesters but media has shown videos of police officers shooting with pistols. So far, police force have admitted killing only one protester, identified as 20-year-old man called Suleiman, who died after he was shot in the stomach in Bijnor city.
Such protests have broken out across the country after Indian parliament passed the anti-Muslim citizenship law. But protestors are facing the most brutal police response in Utter Pradesh- Delhi and other states run by the BJP chief ministers. In Delhi- the police are under the direct control of federal interior minister. The Trio of Modi- Yogi and Amit shah have loose hell on Muslims and young protestors. The Modi government is showing its real ugly face.
On December 11, the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) passed Rajya Sabha, the upper house of parliament, where the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lacks a majority, by 125 votes to 105. It had cleared, Lok Sabha, the lower house, two days earlier.
The new controversial law offers amnesty to non-Muslim illegal immigrants from three neighbouring countries – Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. This new law discriminates against Muslims. Modi is now doing exactly against Muslims in India what he did in Kashmir. He is whipping up hatred against Muslims as did by Hitler in Germany against Jews.
