Mosque in Delhi set on fire, bhagwa flag hoisted on minaret



A day after a mosque was vandalised and set
on fire in Ashok Nagar’s Gali No 5, the saffron flag placed on the dome of the
mosque minar remains hoisted.

The video clip which had gone viral on
Tuesday, 25 February, showed three men climbing the minaret and placing a
saffron flag and an Indian flag near the dome. The video also shows plumes of
smoke billowing in the background.

When The Quint visited the spot on
Wednesday, the flag with a picture of Lord Hanuman and “Jai Shri Ram” written
on it was still seen fluttering near the minaret.

Danish, who lives adjacent to the mosque,
told The Quint, “The homes of 5-6 Muslims near the mosque have been
vandalised and looted.”

“We saw a mob on the streets but didn’t
think they will come inside our homes. We had called the police but before they
reached, the mob pelted stones at the mosque and our homes. They took away all
our stuff.”
