A few days after a violent mob ran riot at the Red Fort, a video has now surfaced on social media that showcases the unfolding of the unfortunate events on Republic Day.
In a video uploaded by a Facebook page named, ‘The Saffron Sword’, a ‘farmer’ protestor can be seen hurling expletives at PM Modi. He then goes near the gate of the Red Fort and says, “The time for peace is over. It’s revolution time now… If they (cops) don’t open the gates (of Red Fort), then, we will take up arms.”
The ‘protestor’ was then seen threatening a police official with violence, if he did not open the gates. This is despite the fact that the cop kept on pleading that he did not have the permission to do such a thing. “Danda taiyaar rakh lo (Keep your batons ready)… Laaton ke bhoot baton se nahi maante,” the man provoked the mob.
Amidst loud cheer and sloganeering and the man was heard shouting a series of expletives.
The police officials, deployed at the Red Fort, were clearly outnumbered by the mob. “We have maintained peace here. Get lost before we do something. Then, you will complain that we thrashed you”, the man threatened a police officer. After a protestor climbed a pole to unfurl the Khalsa Nishan, the man exclaimed, “This is the sacrifice of Sikhs…Raj Karega Khalsa (Only the Khalsa will rule).” The video ends with a glimpse of ‘protestors’ urinating on the walls, with the cameraman asking them to pee in Modi’s mouth.
