The Left parties, in a fact-finding report released on Tuesday, said that the violence that took place in Delhi’s Jahangirpuri on April 16 is part of the agenda of some of the Sangh’s allies to use the religious opportunity to sway religious leaders. Based on its interactions with people from the affected area in northwest Delhi, the team said Hindus and Muslims have been “living together for decades” there and claimed that those who took part in Saturday’s violence were outsiders.
The report said violence broke out when a Hanuman Jayanti procession led by Bajrang Dal activists, armed with pistols and swords, arrived in front of a mosque.
“Then why it was not stopped? Why were they allowed to raise slogans outside the mosque when the fast was over and a crowd of Muslims was expected?” The report asked to hold the Delhi Police responsible for the clashes between the two communities.
The fact finding team included leaders from CPI(M), CPI, CPI-ML and Forward Bloc.

“If the local Muslims had hatched a conspiracy to attack the procession, as alleged by BJP leaders, the attack would have happened earlier,” the report said.

“It should also be noted that the BJP has openly praised the role of the police. In this regard, unilateral arrests by the police mainly of members of the minority community, even though video evidence of provocative behavior is available and the processions The aggressive action is totally unjust and motivated.”
