  1. A BJP (ruling party) leader gave an ultimatum to Delhi Police to clear out all protesters who were completely peaceful till that point. He had no authority to tell the Police anything.

    Later, Right Wing groups such as Bajrang Dal started bringing in trucks and tractors with rocks in it. This itself sshould have been stopped by the Police department.

    Later they started heckling and attacking anti-CAA Protesters and then they started retaliating. Even the police joined in pelting stones. Right wing groups even attacked Muslim houses.

    The Right Wing groups forced shopkeepers etc. to switch off their CCTV Cameras and they have started marking Hindu households and shops with Orange Flags.

    This same tactic was used in 2002 Gujrat Riots. Non-Muslim houses were marked and then when protests started Muslim Houses and Shops were razed.

    It’s more than obvious that the Police could have easily prevented all of this but they are famous for being biased and giving in to the Right Wing groups’ demands.

  2. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.indiatoday.in/india/story/maujpur-jafrabad-delhi-caa-protests-police-clashes-violence-arson-1649558-2020-02-24) reduced by 92%. (I’m a bot)

    > Protests related to the Citizenship Amendment Act took a violent turn on Monday in Maujpur and Fafrabad areas of Northeast Delhi as pro and anti-CAA protesters clashed with each other for the second consecutive day.

    > A Delhi Police head constable, Ratan Lal, was killed in the stonepelting after suffering a head injury, while several police personnel, including Deputy Commissioner of Police, Shahdra, Amit Sharma, were injured during the clashes.

  3. Violence right before Trump to arrive in New Delhi

  4. For the people who, like me, don’t know what CAA means:

    Citizenship (Amendment) Act 2019.

    The Act seeks to amend the definition of illegal immigrant for Hindu, Sikh, Parsi, Buddhist and Christian immigrants from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, who have lived in India without documentation. They will be granted fast track Indian citizenship in six years. So far 12 years of residence has been the standard eligibility requirement for naturalisation…

    …The petitioners say the Bill discriminates against Muslims and violates the right to equality enshrined in the Constitution.
