Kapil Gujjar, the fascist Hindutva extremist who opened fire in Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh area on February 1 was greeted with hugs and music from his sympathisers after he was released on bail by a Delhi court on Saturday.
Gujjar, who belongs to east Delhi’s Dallu Pura area, had on February 1 fired bullets in Shaheen Bagh, which has emerged as a centre of protests against the divisive Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the proposed National Register of Citizens (NRC). Hundreds of women have been peacefully protesting at Shaheen Bagh since December 15.
Gujjar had shouted saying “iss desh mein kisi ki nahin chalegi, sirf Hinduon ki chalegi (In this country, no one but Hindus can have their say),” and fired in the air. The incident had occurred two days after another Hindutva terrorist Rambhakt Gopal Sharma had shot at the peaceful student protesters of Jamia Millia Islamia in Delhi. His Facebook posts had revealed that he wanted to carry out Jallianwala Bagh like large scale carnage at Shaheen Bagh.… Gujjar’s release has been widely criticised by people on social media.
