Amid Violence, A Tale Of Peace And Harmony From Delhi's Maujpur
The communal riots in Delhi have claimed more than 40 lives, and dozens of houses and shops have been decimated but amid this, several Hindus and Muslims have managed to salvage humanity. The Ghonda area in north-east Delhi witnessed large-scale violence in the past few days. People in this Hindu-majority area provided security to five Muslim families living on rent and did not let them leave their house. A Muslim man living in this house said that he calls his home-owner Radha ‘Maa’ and it is she who has been bringing milk and vegetables for these families during the communal disturbances. He also said that Radha is worried about their security and therefore, is not letting them step outside. Like Radha, her 73-year-old husband Satya Prakash also kept night-long vigils during the riots, so that Muslim families were not harmed in any way.
