Was the violence in Delhi planned before President Donald Trump’s visit? Is a former JNU student involved in inciting people to make a riot-like situation? It all ends up with a single video where a former JNU student is seen encouraging people to come on streets during Trump’s visit. Twitter makes it viral.
A planned riot?
A clip of former JNU student Umar Khalid, who was one among those who raised ‘tukde-tukde’ slogans inside the university campus in 2016, has been identified making provoking statements stating that they will be on the roads when Trump will visit India to convey a message present government is dividing the nation.
A short video is circulating on twitter where it shows ex-JNU students addressing an anti-CAA crowd. He is heard saying, “Islamist forces” had already prepared a plot to hit the streets and humiliate the country on the day the US President is scheduled to arrive.”
“Coming out on streets in huge numbers”
“I guarantee that when Donald Trump will land in India on February 24, we will display how Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government are attempting to divide the country and trying to bury the principles of Mahatama Gandhi… We will come out on streets in huge numbers to tell (the US President) that people of India are fighting to bring everyone together,” Khalid said in the video.
Speaking further, Umar Khalid said, “when 370 was repealed we did not complain, when Ayodhya verdict we did not protest, the government became so much over-confident thinking that we’ll remain silent… CAA will go, NRC will go, NPR will go… then this govt will go.”
Sharing the video on Twitter, several BJP leaders questioned if the clashes in Delhi were pre-planned at the direction of the “Tukde Tukde gang”,
Umar Khalid was one amongst the JNU students who were expelled in 2016 for raising “Bharat tere tukde honge” slogans. The slogans were raised when some students were protesting against the sentencing to death of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

जिहादी ताकतों द्वारा ये साजिश पहले ही रच दी गई थी कि जिस दिन डोनाल्ड ट्रंप भारत मे आएंगे उस दिन टुकड़े-टुकड़े गैंग सड़को पर उतरेगा और देश को बदनाम करने की कोशिश करेगा । 17 फरबरी का उमर खालिद का ये भाषण उसी का सबूत है। pic.twitter.com/KH0ZYVn1VR

Umar Khalid, already facing sedition charges, gave a speech in Amaravati on 17Feb, where he exhorted a largely Muslim audience to come out on streets in huge numbers when Trump arrives in India on 24th.

So as per Liberal logic Kapil Mishra's speech was behind the Incitement of #DelhiViolence,
While Umar Khalid provoking people to come on streets during Donald Trump visit is just a part of FoE,

Kapil Mishra: Shaheen Bagh khali kariye, nahi toh hume sadko par utarna padega
Umar Khalid: Trump ke samne hume sadko par aana hoga sarkar ke khilaf
But Kapil Mishra instigated people and Umar Khalid is a peaceful person and is being targeted because he belongs to minority.
