“Conspiracy against Hindu community”: Plea In SC Seeks NIA Investigation In Recent Communal Clashes

Supreme Court

New Delhi: The matter of communal violence during the celebrations of Ram Navami and Hanuman Jayanti has now reached Supreme Court. Advocate Amritpal Singh Khalsa, has urged for an ‘impartial probe.’

Alleging that ‘there is a conspiracy against Hindu community,’ advocate and activist Vineet Jindal has filed a Public Interest Litigation or PIL in SC. He has sought for an investigation into the clashes by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

In his PIL, he has appealed to the SC to investigate possible links of ISIS or any other international organization. in a bid to instigate Hindus to retaliate. The Hindus were carrying out their processions peacefully.

“Events indicate the involvement of terror funding with possible links of the ISIS and other anti-national and international organisations to target Hindus across the country with the intent of trying to dis-balance the social structure of India,” the plea stated.

“Devotees were targeted with gunshots and stones thrown on them. It is a threat to the sovereignty of the country and to instigate the Hindu community to retaliate,” it further said.

The lawyer has also urged the apex court to take Suo moto cognizance of the communal clash in Delhi’s Jahangirpuri on Hanuman Jayanti, in a separate letter petition.

In a two-page letter filed by advocate Amritpal Singh Khalsa, he has urged Chief Justice N V Ramana to constitute a committee headed by a sitting judge of the top court, to conduct an ‘impartial probe’ into the violence.

Khalsa has claimed that Delhi Police’s investigation is highly ‘biased, communal and directly protecting those who were behind the riots.’

“The role of Delhi Police in 2020 riots have belittled them and have weakened the faith of the people in them,” it said.

In Delhi’s Jahangirpuri people from two communities clashed during a Hanuman Jayanti procession. 

Last week during Ram Navami celebrations, communal clashes broke out in five states – Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Rajasthan and West Bengal.
