Rohingya refugees in Delhi face a harrowing time when their camp burned down in the Indian Capital. But what was the reason behind the burning of the Rohingya Camp in Delhi? According to the Indian Media, a complaint was filed against a Nationalists BJP leader, after he brazenly confessed to burning a Rohingya refugee camp in Delhi.
Indian advocate Prashant Bhushan filed the complaint against BJP leader Manish Chandela after the leader admitted to the crime on social media, reported The Indian Express.
Chandela, a youth wing leader for the ruling BJP, deleted his Twitter account after a strong backlash and call for action from several groups including the All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM). Bhushan, in his charge, attached screenshots of Chandela’s tweets.
Perplexed by the Delhi police’s incompetence to take action against the BJP leader, the Bushan in a tweet said
No action has been taken by Delhi Police to register a case against the accused. this is State of rule of law under BJP.”
Rohingya Refugees in Delhi: In the Line of Fire
On April 15, Chandela tweeted from his account, “Yes, we did it and we do again #ROHINGYA QUIT INDIA.” In a tweet about the fire in Rohingya camp, he replied, “Well done by our heroes,” and said Yes we did burn the houses of Rohingya terrorists.”
On 15th April, over 225 Rohingya refugees in Delhi suddenly became homeless after a massive fire engulfed their camp in Kalindi Kunj area. The fire broke out at 3:30 am due to a short circuit, the police said, reported NDTV. No casualties were reported.
