Viral video claims billionaire was behind Hindu-Muslim riots in Delhi

Thursday, June 4, 2020 • Telugu Comments

The Delhi communal riots in February consumed scores of lives of both Muslims and Hindus. Even as Donald Trump was on a state visit to India, rioters went berserk. In a video that is going viral, a young man claims that Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros's network was behind engineering the riots in an attempt to create social disruption in India. The video, titled 'Exposing OSF', says that Soros has been out to defeat Narendra Modi through foul means. Soros, whose Open Society Foundations has been an international grantmaking network, is admittedly committed to defeating Nationalism in India.

"In January, an Islamist by name Sharjeel Imam said in a speech in Delhi that Assam can be cut off from the rest of India if 5 lakh Muslims come together (at the Chicken Neck)," the unnamed man says in the viral video, adding that an NGO was found to have received donations from George Soros' network just two days later. Imam's arrest piqued some individuals, who demanded that he should be released unconditionally.

PFI (Popular Front of India), which has been in the dock over the Delhi riots, is also linked indirectly to George Soros, the video says. Teesta Setalvad's NGO, the man in the video claims, tried its best to frame Modi in the Gujarat riots. "Modi is the common enemy to Teesta and Soros," he adds.

Harsh Mander, the former IAS officer, supported the anti-CAA protests at Delhi's Shaheen Bagh. "Harsh Mander works for at least five Christian NGOs that are into conversion activities. He handles the conversion business of Soros," the video alleges.

Soros also dislikes Trump. There are rumours that the billionaire is very much behind the ongoing violent protests in the US over the murder of the Black man, George Floyd.

Writing in Firstpost, columnist Abhijit Majumder says, "Jihadists, far-Left anarchists, shadowy funding, Hungarian tycoon George Soros openly announcing his plans to destabilise Indian democracy... a heady mix of dots no western media outlet cared to connect." At a time when America is going through social unrest ahead of the Presidential elections later this year, the "enemies" who are out to "destabilise Indian democracy" may also be doing something similar in the US, right-wingers feel.
