NEW DELHI – Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday slammed the BJP government for allowing anti-Muslim violence in the state saying that Muslims are being brutalised in Tripura.

He also asked how long will the government pretend to be deaf and blind. He said that those doing violence in the name of Hinduism are not Hindus but hypocrites.

“Our Muslim brothers are being brutalised in Tripura. Those who perpetrate hatred and violence in the name of Hindus are not Hindus but hypocrites,” he said in a tweet in Hindi.

“How long will the government keep pretending to be blind and deaf,” he asked, using the hashtag “#TripuraRiots“.

According to the Association for Protection of Civil Rights (APCR), a human rights group which has been closely monitoring the situation in the restive state, there have been at least 27 confirmed incidents of Hindutva mobs attacking mosques, houses and individuals in Muslim areas. These include 16 incidents where mosques were vandalised and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) flags were forcibly hoisted on them. At least three mosques, Palbazar mosque in Unakoti district, Dogra Masjid in Gomati district and Narola Tila in Vishalgarh were set on fire.
