Delhi Police stood like mute spectators outside the gates of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) while a batch of around 50-60 goons or more (belonging to right-wing Hindu Raksha Dal but also allegedly backed by student organizations like Akhil Bharatiya Vidya Parishad) used sticks, iron rods, stones and possibly acid as well to launch a planned terrorist attack targeting the students and teachers of that institution, particularly those belonging to left backed student organizations.
They allowed the terrorists to walk in the campus wearing masks, vandalize the property in JNU campus (Remember when a chief minister was talking about ‘revenge’ for the destruction of property?), match the brutality displayed against the students of Jamia Millia Islamia just a few days ago and then allowed them to walk out as well.
Are they doing what they were hired for?
Under normal circumstances, any police force around the world is supposed to catch someone who breaks the law. That is their primary job. But maybe Delhi police is suffering from collective amnesia, especially since the past few days. Maybe taking orders from the Home Ministry (specifically from a particular gentleman in that ministry) can make you forget your basic duties towards the public, who incidentally pays for the entire police force in this country from their own pockets.
They also let a group of protesters, who were frankly behaving like a rabid pack of dogs, heckle and beat up students, journalists, activists and politicians while also chanting some dangerously inciting slogans like ‘Desh ke gaddaron ko, goli maaron saalon ko’. They did not move an inch while women were being verbally and physically threatened by those a***oles.
Have they given up on their conscience?
They also let the same unruly mob misbehave with doctors and not let them go inside JNU when all they were doing was to respond to the calls of medical help from those who were injured in that terror attack.
After all this, the police had the audacity to say that they had handled the entire matter professionally. No one with an active brain cell would believe their claims. The only thing that they did was to sell their conscience to their superiors in the government (they has probably done that a long time ago) and blindly take their orders.
My only piece of advice to any police officer who was present at JNU on the 5th of January would be to resign from the force and condemn what they did. Or else live each moment of your life with the guilt of what you did. But since many of them have already crossed all limits of human decency, expecting them to have a sense of guilt would be a bit too optimistic. If you think I am lying watch this:
Action should be taken against the guilty police officers
If you stand by the wayside while those terrorists mercilessly thrash students and teachers then you are not doing your job. If you allow those anti-social elements to go scot-free then you are not doing your job. If you are manhandling the people like Yogendra Yadav instead of nabbing the actual culprits then you are not doing your job.
There is no point in even listening to any argument by the police for their continued inaction while iron rods were being used by terrorists on students and teachers.
They say that they will try and identify the protestors by using facial recognition software but I do not believe a word of what they say since they were the ones who let those right-wing mob in the campus. Only the expulsion of all the police personnel guilty of letting those terrorists do what they did can restore our faith in the Delhi Police again.
