Summary

Mursalin Ahmad knew what was coming when he saw the armed mob of about 100 people approach his New Delhi home Tuesday chanting “Jai Shree Ram,” a slogan meaning "Hail Lord Ram" that’s become a war cry for Hindu nationalists.The 22-year-old Muslim student bolted the door as the group, one of many that have rampaged through Muslim neighborhoods in the Indian capital in recent days, tried to force its way inside.The mob eventually broke in, before torching a motorbike on the doorstep, choking the house with thick black smoke, while police watched. The state was governed by Modi at the time.“We can't let another 1984 happen,” said a statement from judges in Delhi’s High Court, referring to the massacre that occurred when organized mobs rampaged through New Delhi and murdered about 2,800 Sikhs.Modi, who hosted President Donald Trump on his first state visit there this week, broke his silence on the unrest Wednesday, saying police were working to restore order.But activists and analysts say they have little faith in the authorities to effectively deal with the situation.The mobs are hard-line supporters of the BJP’s Hindu nationalist ideology, and the violence was sparked by a provocative speech by a local BJP leader Sunday.
