NEW DELHI - Fresh Anti Muslims Riots and Violence erupt in Indian capital New Delhi.
In India, deadly violence against the Indian Muslim population has claimed at least 20 lives and injured over 150, as rioters unleashed a vicious rampage across several parts of Delhi, torching buildings and vehicles and attacking journalists.
Smoke rose into the sky when Hindu protesters set fruit and vegetable shops and a Muslim shrine on fire in the Bhajanpur area.
A mosque was also set on fire by a Hindu mob who shouted “Jai Shri Ram”, translated to “hail Lord Ram”.
Yet fresh violence was reported from Muslim populated areas such as Karawal Nagar, Maujpur, Bhajanpura, Vijay Park and Yamuna Vihar, while stones were thrown in neighbourhoods such as Maujpur.
