Senior lawyer Prashant Bhushan on Thursday filed a case against BJP youth leader Manish Chandela who has tweeted that they had burnt the Rohingya camp in Delhi. Bhushan accused Delhi police of not taking any action against this BJP Yuva Morcha leader. All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM), a Muslim body also filed a complaint with Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik against Manish Chandela. Chandela’s account is no longer active on Twitter.

Incident

On April 15, 2018, a massive fire engulfed a Rohingya refugee camp in Delhi’s Madanpur Khadar area at 3 in the night. Over 200 residents of the camp lost their belongings, including their ID cards and special visas issued by the United Nations. They have also lost documents of their properties in Myanmar. Eleven fire engines took over 3 hours to douse the flames. 

Manish replied to a tweet regarding the burning of Rohingya camps saying “Well done our heroes.” When asked for doing what he replied: “Yes we burnt the houses of Rohingya terrorists.” In another tweet, he said, “Yes we did it, we do it again.”

Manish Chandela has since deleted his Twitter account after a series of tweets.

The Logical Indian urges Delhi police to do an investigation and arrest Manish Chandela, if found guilty. It is appalling that a person decided to burn the houses of people who have left their country to live in ours and don’t have any support. The issue of whether Rohingyas should be allowed to settle in our country or not is a govt issue but to burn their camp is against the law and action must be taken against him.
