Appalled by the attacks on seven journalists covering illegal hate activity in Delhi, the Delhi Union of Journalists (DUJ) announced a DUJ Committee for Communal Harmony on April 5, 2022 to foster peace and amity. 

At its executive committee meeting, the DUJ condemned the attack on journalists at Burari ground where an unlawful Hindu Mahapanchayat meeting was held on April 3. Reporters recorded the hate speeches during this event until the mob attacked the group. Forcing them to delete the videos, the crowd beat two Muslim journalists Arbab Ali and Meer Faisal and molested a woman journalist, said the DUJ.

According to The Telegraph, another Muslim journalist was also present at the place along with Quint reporters Md Meherban, Meghnad Bose, Newslaundry reporters Ronak Bhat and a woman journalist who narrated her ordeal on Twitter.

 

“We demand that the culprits be arrested, both for targeting journalists and for making inciteful hate speeches to disrupt communal harmony in the city,” said General Secretary Sujata Modhak.

She called for a judicial enquiry against assailants and those organisers who are repeat offenders in crimes intended to disrupt the peaceful coexistence of citizens. The DUJ further criticized the Delhi Police for failing to stop the meeting despite claiming that they did not give permission for the same. Accordingly, the police failed to arrest the attackers and took away the journalists instead.
