Atul Loke for The New York Times By Feb. 27, 2020, 6:03 a.m. ET NEW DELHI — Sporadic violence continued to flare in India’s capital on Thursday as more people questioned the police’s failure to quell sectarian violence that has claimed at least 35 lives. Police officials were due in court to respond to claims that they had ignored several specific intelligence warnings over the weekend that armed Hindu mobs had begun forming to confront Muslim protesters on the outskirts of eastern New Delhi. The resulting violence — mosques and shops were torched, gangs battled with metal bars and rocks, police officers began firing into crowds — was the worst spasm of religiously driven bloodletting in India in years. The violence grew intense as thousands of police officers were deployed to line the roads of New Delhi on Monday as President Trump’s motorcade cruised into town for his first visit to the Indian capital. That has led to accusations that the government and police were so preoccupied with the American president’s visit that they did not heed the warnings — or worse, simply did not care to protect the country’s Muslim minority. Intelligence agents within the police services sent several alerts asking for more forces to be deployed but the chaos only grew, according to the Indian media . “The whole city knew that riots were impending,’’ said Harsh Mander, a human-rights activist who is pressing the courts to investigate the ringleaders. “Why didn’t the police act?” Alok Kumar, a senior police commander, said he was not aware that Mr. Trump’s visit had affected the deployment. But another officer, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to avoid reprisal, said that there had been a shortage of officers because so many had been stationed in the other part of the city to provide security for Mr. Trump. It was only after Mr. Trump left, on Tuesday night, that forces were shifted, he said. The violence, which has stunned India and Read more: The New York Times
So called secular state shame on Indian government Attacking Islam because the particular Muslims doesn't have power to fight back doesn't mean they're weak but patience, they're waiting for Allah to make his judgement. If breakout of Wohan coronavirus didn't serve as a lesson to your eyes then keep doing it, you gonna see.
Riots stated by Muslim. You are far from the facts. fakenewsNytimes Sickening ! 'Attacks on muslims'? You kidding me? How many reporters does The NewYork Times have in Delhi on ground? '0' I really want to sue you. You are showing misleading biased news which has nothing to do with reality, And trying to defame India & its majority (Hindus) MEAIndia
Truth is here Deja vu. All these years later. “Attacks on Muslims” 🙄 Yet another Propaganda piece by trying to portray it as one sided violence. Equal number of Hindus have been killed too. These were riots plain and simple. Here the body of Ankit Sharma being pulled out from the gutter. Dictator Trump aligning with Muslim murdering, Kashmir- invading, Hitler adoring Modi. And you are afraid of Bernie Sanders’s democratic socialism. Good luck, America.
India says US politicizing religious riots in which 30 diedIndia accuses a U.S. government commission of politicizing communal violence in New Delhi that killed at least 30 and injured scores as President Trump visited. The commission cited accounts that police had not intervened in attacks against Muslims. kraj duży,problemy jeszcze większe That's a load of crap and that from a government headed by Hindu nationalist Modi who after a former riot when Muslims were killed said, 'They needed to be taught a lesson.' Islamic countries do not defend Muslims in India
NYT, enemy of the people fake news peddlers. no one believes anything you criminals write MAGAlol They're the Gestapo of Nazi India. Sorry there is correction - failure to attack on Hindu and Muslim both . What crappy n bigoted headline A nation rule by bigots The POLICE, and the mobs responsible for attacking the MUSLIMS, could be being financed by the same PEOPLE, perhaps one of the so-called humanitarian organizations should stop pushing false narratives in order to fleece the MORONIC out of their coinage long enough to investigate?
Trump visits India. Democrat fake news now hates India. The police initially sheltered the goons on their islamophobic rampage as they were unloading trucks of stones. The police gave them confidence and support. This is no longer the India that the world perceived once. Good job journalists for writing a highly biased article. Muslims literally slaughtered hindus like animals and here you are writing just opposite of it. No wonder nobody trust you guys.
More than dozen dead in worst religious violence in New Delhi in decadesWhat started as clashes between opponents and supporters of India's citizenship law quickly turned into communal riots. At least 20 people were killed, 189 people injured, dozens with gunshot wounds, in two days of riots.
Anti-Muslims terrorism should be dealt with internationally. This is what is being expected from Muslims around the Globe. The defiance of Indian Government is an encouraging massage to attack Muslims and their Mosques and propensities. unbelievable!! Please hurry w Trump's showboat libel suit. Get discovery going n petition 2 allow the public in the courtroom should it even go that far. He's been slandering you 4 YEARS so counter sue . Your up 1st to protect the constitutional right 2 freedom of the press. Trail blaze!

False, there has been peace and quiet now, stop peddling hatred and lies. Do your research. It was Muslim Mob who gathered together and attacked on innocent Hindus.
Just wait till a newly bizarre virus befalls you too. Same happened with China in ChinaWuhan Modi needs to undo the new citizenships law, or it will face huge consequences!.

As New Delhi Violence Rages for 3rd Day, Modi Urges CalmMuslims in New Delhi are fleeing as sectarian violence reduces their houses, shops, and places of worship to ashes. In one neighborhood, witnesses said police fired at Muslim crowds, shielded Hindu rioters and didn't act when rioters set a mosque on fire. “Modi urges calm” is a hell of a way to frame this PM Modi who facilitated Genocide of Muslims in 2002, is at it again. He is tacitly approving Mob attacks on Muslims by his Political Party BJP. Pogrom of 200 Million Muslims has started in India and Trump is hugging and kissing Criminal Modi. realDonaldTrump 🙏🏻
In New Delhi, Days Of Deadly Violence And RiotsAt least 20 people have been killed in New Delhi 's worst sectarian clashes in decades. The fighting follows months of mostly peaceful protests over India's new citizenship law that excludes Muslims. Diversity doesn't work. *People willing to die for their religion. Please see my profile picture Meanwhile, according to Trump, 'India was great.'
A mob out for blood: India's protests pit Hindus against MuslimsMohammad Zubair was on his way home from a local mosque in northeast New Delhi w... still Major News Network havent widely reported it as it should be. ModiKingOfTerrorists It's 2020 and this religious nonsense is never ending. People being slaughtered in a capital city. It's so depressing. If we all, together admitted that all religions are just fables designed to advance self-righteous tribalism, could we maybe stop killing each other over them?
