Delhi’s Jamia Millia Islamia once again turned tense on Tuesday after a group of people supporting the Citizenship Amendment Act reached the area, where hundreds of people are protesting against the controversial law.
They were reportedly raising the controversial slogan of “desh ke gaddaro ko, goli maaro **** ko (traitors of this nation must be shot dead)”. As they were nearing the varsity, the Delhi Police detained them.
This is how the men who came to disrupt the Jamia Millia protest got past the police barricades under Sukhdev Vihar metro … should have been stopped right here..Where are the cops ? Just the barricades !! pic.twitter.com/3Uaz6DRBKy

Jamia Coordination Committee blamed the Delhi Police for the situation and demanded clarification from Home Minister Amit Shah.
After repeated attacks on Jamia, RW goons have again entered the premises chanting “goli maaro saalon ko”.
Has the RAF been deployed here to control these mobs or to intimidate students?
Home Minister @AmitShah should explain why goons are being unleashed on us everyday.

The “goli maaro” slogan was raised last week at a rally addressed by BJP leader and Union Minister Anurag Thakur. While campaigning for the Delhi assembly elections. Thakur was seen repeatedly shouting “desh ke in gaddaro ko“, with the crowd responding, “goi maaro saalo ko“. The statements had drawn the Election Commission’s wrath, with the polling body barring Thakur from campaigning for the next 72 hours.
