Prayagraj Development Authority (PDA) which demolished the house of Javed Ahmed, one of its official told that they had issued a notice to him in May, asking him to appear before them but this claim was totally denied by the Afreen Fatima daughter of Javed Ahmed.

In her interview given to Al Jazeera she said that “No earlier notices of illegal construction were received by the accused or his wife”. The demolition is nothing just a tactics of bjp and Hindutva politics to suppress the voice of minorities and Muslims in the countries, the students across the universities are the real resistance against these hatemongers and they want to kill those voice.” . My father is a diabetic patient, he needs insulin daily its been 24 hours since police detained him” She added.

Politics of hate

BJP Raised the issue of Gyanvapi Masjid and Mathura Eidgah, Hate speech was given by the BJP leaders Godi media made a debate and BJP spokesperson insulted Prophet Mohammed.  In the debates, spokesperson insulted Lord Shiva and Shivling was also made fun of. But the question still remains the same Who is bringing Lord Shiva into the debate again and again who are they who are disrespecting prophet Mohammed, what is the need of this, who are the leaders who are doing politics in the name of God and Allah and communalizing the issue.

Mohd. Umam brother of javed Mohammed told The Wire that the notice is completely baseless, saying, “We did not receive anything and we had no information about construction pertaining to five floors or upwards.

A former chief justice told that:-

“Even if you assume for a moment that the construction was illegal, which by the way is how crores of Indians live, it is impermissible that you demolish a house on a Sunday when the residents are in custody”

Media adviser mrtyunjay kumar tweets in hindi and says “Remember, every Friday is followed by a Saturday,” and posted a photo of a bulldozer demolishing a building.

BJP mla shalabh mani Tripathi was posted a videotape identified “ Gift to Rioters ” which shows police labor force beating group of muslim youth in ranchi mercilessly.

The use of bulldozer as a justice tool is not the first time that has been used in the state of bjp governed uttar Pradesh.

In the name of setting example they have been targeting the minorities of the nation. Such attacks have become so common in our country today only and only because of the impunity these thugs enjoy, today hate has gone mainstream. It is cool to go attack Muslims. The hate mongers are also rewarded for their actions.

Since Mr Modi’s return to power for a second term in 2019, the anti-Muslim violence has expanded in its scope. Sometimes, the violence is not even physical and takes a more subtle, insidious form that appears aimed at vilifying and demonising the minority community.

The religious divide has deepened. the distrust has deepened this hate is for profit. The idea it to make Muslims the other, the enemy the process of creating the other is by propagating the idea that if we don’t destroy the other, we will be destroyed. So you stoke hate, create fear, and violence is part of this larger narrative this religious nationalism is a dangerous idea that can lead to sectarian violence.

Religious polarisation has increased in India since the BJP came to power. Television channels have held instigative debates and social media has seen rampant hate over the issue.

Numerous people associated with right- sect organisations frequently make controversial statements on television shows, but critics say Ms Sharma was not a” borderline element” as the BJP has claimed. She was an sanctioned prophet of the party, assigned with representing the BJP’s views. This is clearly the right view that BJP is each about its politics is each about “ hate and bigotry
