After the riots in Gujarat communal riots has taken a different mode in the country. Now, instead of rioting at mass level sponsored are made on a small scale. Then used for disturb the communal harmony. Recent trilokpuri incidence was not communal. But it was later given communal color. For this incidence only BJP is not responsible but every one playes his roll in it. Who had stoped the Congress and AAP to handle the situation? And AAP also did not take any platonic stand in this matter.

  • If block 20’s qurrel was not organised then how did it reach in other blocks?
  • Where were the elected representatives (MPs, MLAs and councelers) ?
  • What did Sunil Vaidh say to the violent mob in a short time that took ?
  • 27, 15 blocks didn’t indulge in stoning, then where were the actual perpetrators from, and who were they actually?
  • Why only Muslim’s shops were burnt, if a Muslims mob was instigated by so-called Masjid announcment?
  • Why did police release the miscreant who started all this by creating a fight in Block 20? Who was behind this release?
  • Who is Joint Commissioner Rathore, who spoke to Gaurav Talwar’s brother?
  • What was police doing during the continued arson and why did the fire brigade vehicles reach after two hours?
  • Why did the police not register FIRs regarding the burnt shops?
