Delhi Violence: Breaking The Economic Spine Of A Community

The Muslims in this part of Shiv Vihar were decidedly vulnerable because they were fewer in number and poorer, being relatively more recent migrants from UP. They lost everything: those who had their homes stared on near-empty spaces and seemed reconciled to spending a longer time in a relief camp than what they initially thought.

Indeed, those who lived as tenants in Hindu homes knew they cannot return. Their documents – prized far more than gold and silver – are gone so how will they pass the arduous CAA “proof centered” test?…

Was the Delhi violence a sleight of hand to render the vulnerable Muslims completely defenceless before the state and neutralise the opposition to the citizenship act?
