Pakistani famous TV personality Hamza Ali Abbasi has urged the international community to take notice of brutality against Muslims in India’s capital New Delhi.
At least 14 people have been killed, including a policeman in Delhi violence that broke out after supporters of Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) attacked anti-CAA protest sit-ins on Monday.
Slamming the Hindutva activists’ atrocities against the peaceful protesters of the controversial citizenship law, Abbasi urged the world powers to take notice of human rights violations in India.
Abbasi, in his tweet, said: “Several Muslims have been murdered on the streets, mosque vandalised, Muslim homes/businesses burned.”
He cautioned that world should take notice of alarming situation, adding, “else this entire fragile region can descend into unprecedented violence.”
