It is the hate-filled messaging of the UP government, ruled by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), in its second term in office, strengthened by the hate speeches of the central government and party leadership in Delhi that has escalated the situation to the lawless state that it is today.

Subhashini Ali, former CPM member of parliament (MP) speaking to Aditi Sharma of Newsclick spoke at length of the recent disturbing developments in the state and the questionable manner in which any due process of law had been ignored to demolish homes in Kanpur, Sahranpur and Prayagraj (Allahabad). She sharply criticised the actions of the Sahranpur police in mercilessly beating Muslim youth within the police station last week end. This video, first published by NDTV is now, four days later, being “investigated” by the UP police. After this video became publis last weekend, BJP MLA from Sahranpur, shalabh Mani Tripathi, publicly stated that this was a “return gift” for the protests that took place last Friday. Sharply criticizing this hate filled comment, Subhshini Ali says that this kind of revenge-filled governanance gives out a very controversial message.

“If people do not have faith in the state, in the government, in the police, then the only shred of hope lies with the court.”

“At the start of its first term in 2017 this UP government conducted ‘encounter Raj’ –extra judicial killings—where apart from senior policemen, 37 per cen Muslims, Dalits and OBCs were targets,” she said. This kind of rule boded ill for the most marginalized sections of society.
