While there is an uneasy calm in Delhi post the violent clashes, the underbelly of Delhi is still simmering in the after-effects of the violence. The damage that was intended – creating a fear psychosis against the minorities, has been achieved.

While stories of unity are doing the rounds at this trying time, some groups are still unwilling to let go of the hatred and join hands to ensure peace.

A video posted by Hyderabad Metro News on Facebook, shows a group of people planning a protest to be held on March 1 in a response to the violence that recently took place in Delhi and the ongoing protests going on at Shaheen Bagh against the CAA-NPR-NRC.

In the video, the man addressing the gathering is heard as saying, “I request everyone that on 1st March at GD Goenka School at 10 o clock to gather in large numbers and also post on your Facebook as well as mobilize your neighbours. It's time to awaken everyone in large numbers otherwise that day is not too far when we (Hindus) will become their slaves again. Today we see in Delhi that every corner is being burnt down in front of our eyes. Our soldiers are being killed, bullets are being shot in broad daylight at our policemen. Also see how they are breaking in and burning down houses.”

He adds, “And Shaheen Bagh situation is worse from the last 1and half month (corrected 70days). Entire place is packed with these people. Our children are not able to go to schools. People are not able to attend their duties in UP. Meanwhile they are enjoying their Biryani. They are not even letting the ambulances pass for 2hours. There are deaths because of this. To punish these protestors and open these roads all Hindus must unite and come together raising the chants of ' Jai Shri Ram' to gather in GD Goenka School, Madanpur. I also appeal to all the mothers to come in large numbers because their sisters are also gathered there. I appeal to everyone who's here to go to each and every house and invite everyone to join us in our struggle. Tempo facility will also be provided for travel.”

Many people who have commented on this video, have appealed the public to not get instigated by the contents of the video and engage in violence. Some have also called for the video to be reported to the police.

The contents of the video clearly reveal the narrative of hate mongering and fear mongering, engaging in ‘othering’ and just further creating the ‘us v/s them’ divide. It is further stereotyping the minorities and is an example of a planned conspiracy against them.
