Taking a jibe at those who have remained silent over the Sweden riots after Quran was burnt, netizens have put out tweets wondering what actually led to it!
Bengaluru: The riots in Sweden over burning of the holy Quran are a grim reminder of the Bengaluru riots which took place after a reverential Islamic figure was allegedly mocked on social media.
Though such acts as burning of the books are condemnable, it gives no rights whatsoever for hoodlums to set an entire place on fire.
Netizens were on fire wondering how such things could happen.
While such riots in India are often blamed due to the act of right wingers and even things such as the CAA, NRC among others, many wondered what happened in Sweden?
In Sweden :— Uday Jadav (@jadav_uday) August 29, 2020
- There is no BJP
- There is no RSS
- There is no NRC
- There is no CAA
- There is no MODI
- There is no Kapil Mishra
So Where Does the Problem Lies..❓
There was another interesting tweet on those who mocked the ‘light a diya’ campaign during the lockdown with the event that took place in Sweden.
There was another interesting tweet on how many journalists like Rajdeep Sardesai would now jump in to defend the rioters.
Swedish MusIims are facing unfair social media trial for peacefully burning the city of #Malmo.— THE SKIN DOCTOR (@theskindoctor13) August 29, 2020
I request ace image cleaner and part time journo @sardesairajdeep to urgently fly to Sweden to "griII" and bring out their side of story as all viewpoints are needed to get to truth.
BJP leader Kapil Mishra, who is often blamed for the Delhi riots, for his alleged incendiary remarks that sparked the riots also took a jibe!
स्वीडन में CAA आया क्या?— Kapil Mishra (@KapilMishra_IND) August 29, 2020
स्वीडन में NRC आया क्या?
स्वीडन में राम मंदिर बनाया क्या?
स्वीडन में कपिल मिश्रा ने रास्ता खुलवाया क्या?
तो स्वीडन क्यों जलाया ?
हर शहर जलाने का बहाना चाहिए
वहां भी कोई कपिल मिश्रा ढूंढकर ठीकरा फोड़ दो #ArrestKapil4SwedenRiots
There was also one tweet pulling up Greta Thunberg who has made her voice heard in the NEET exams fiasco and even floods in Karachi, but has remained mum on the Sweden riots.
So cute! @GretaThunberg has the time to express solidarity with flood affected people in Karachi and students in India, but NOT ONE WORD against Muzlims who are burning her country down! pic.twitter.com/RtMBWb2SGB— Shefali Vaidya. (@ShefVaidya) August 29, 2020
A note on Sweden riots
Sweden was on fire after a copy of the holy Quran was burnt in Malmo. More than 300 people gathered to protest after which they set tyres on fire.
Sensing the gravity of the issue, an imam even put out a post on Facebook, saying such violence doesn’t represent Islam.
While the condemnation goes on, several Hindu leaders drew parallels with how Hindu gods and goddesses are mocked daily on social media, but take recourse under the law of the land to complain about such things but do not resort to violence.
