A 19-year-old named Vivek was allegedly attacked by rioters in his own shop amidst the violence in Delhi. Reportedly, the rioters pushed a portion of drill machine into his skull.
A reporter on Wednesday tweeted the picture of the teenager, along with his X-Ray report. She wrote, "X-Ray report of a 19yr old who was attacked in his own shop when rioters pushed a portion of drill machine in his head!!! Admitted to #GTB. Hiding his face for obvious reasons..But see the brutality for yourself!"
Quote tweeting the reporter, Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) IT cell chief Amit Malviya pointed out that his name was Vivek and said that only "Islamists" are capable of such brutality.
He wrote, "His name is Vivek and only Islamists of the desert cult are capable of such brutality... I bet no newspaper has this picture on their front page..."
However, Twitter users lashed out at Malviya for "identifying the religion of the rioters before the police". "This is the BJP IT cell head. He has found out the religion of the rioter before the police could. If anyone has any doubts about this being a BJP sponsored riot,to burn the social fabric of India,this tweet should settle it. It was the BJP in 2002. It's the BJP in 2020," a Twitter user wrote.
