Indian journalist Barkha Dutt says India’s hate policies surfaced during US President Donald Trump’s visit to New Delhi.
In an article by the American daily newspaper The Washington Post, the Indian journalist said that Donald Trump’s official trip was meant to be a spectacular show of India’s soft power. Rather, India’s hate politics were exposed for the entire world to see.
She added that Hindus and Muslims found themselves amidst a bloodbath in a city where they have lived together for years. Law and order ceased and the police was “paralyzed and complicit.”
Barkha Dutt went on to say that although the officials described the conflict as clashes between supporters and opponents of the citizenship law, and a surge of violence reported by groups on both sides, it became obvious that the Muslims were, in fact, being terrorized deliberately.
