Delhi man

Delhi police have found the man whose video demonizing minorities, and calling for a public meeting to discuss strategy to deal with them, had gone viral recently. The man identified as Ravi Bhadana was nabbed last night and has now decided to call off the meeting.

In the video, Bhadan could be heard saying, “I request everyone that on 1st March at GD Goenka School at 10 o clock to gather in large numbers and also post on your Facebook as well as mobilize your neighbours. It's time to awaken everyone in large numbers otherwise that day is not too far when we (Hindus) will become their (Muslim’s) slaves again. Today we see in Delhi that every corner is being burnt down in front of our eyes. Our soldiers are being killed, bullets are being shot in broad daylight at our policemen. Also see how they are breaking in and burning down houses.”

He went on to say, “And Shaheen Bagh situation is worse from the last 1and half month (corrected 70days). Entire place is packed with these people. Our children are not able to go to schools. People are not able to attend their duties in UP. Meanwhile they are enjoying their Biryani. They are not even letting the ambulances pass for 2 hours. There are deaths because of this. To punish these protestors and open these roads all Hindus must unite and come together raising the chants of ' Jai Shri Ram' to gather in GD Goenka School, Madanpur. I also appeal to all the mothers to come in large numbers because their sisters are also gathered there. I appeal to everyone who's here to go to each and every house and invite everyone to join us in our struggle. Tempo facility will also be provided for travel.”

The contents of the video clearly reveal the narrative of hate mongering and fear mongering, engaging in ‘othering’ and just further creating the ‘us v/s them’ divide. It is further stereotyping the minorities and is an example of a planned conspiracy against them.

Now, Bhadana has been nabbed by the police after multiple people reported the video. But, Bhadana far from expressing regret, only says that the meeting is postponed in view of the tense communal situation. “After having discussion with the respected Member of Parliament, DSP, Joint Commissioner, mayor and others, we have decided to postpone the meeting we had planned on March 1. This is bearing in mind the present situation. I appeal to everyone to maintain peace.”

At present it is unclear if any formal charges have been registered against Bhadana.
