The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) statement on Delhi violence has been described by India as 'factually incorrect' and 'misleading'. Foreign Ministry spokesman Ravish Kumar also appealed to other institutions and organizations like OIC not to make irresponsible statements at this sensitive time. Ravish Kumar said, ‘The statements from the OIC are not factually correct. Only a select few facts are included in them and they are misleading. Efforts are on to build trust and normalize the situation.’
‘We appeal to these organizations not to make irresponsible statements at this sensitive time.’ The Organization of Islamic Cooperation condemned the Delhi violence and accused it of discriminating against Muslims during this period. Since Monday, 37 people have been killed in the violence that started in the north-eastern district of Delhi. Delhi Police has issued a statement saying that one head constable and 36 ordinary citizens of Delhi Police have been killed so far. According to the police, 34 people died in GTB hospital while three people died in LNJP hospital.
On the Delhi violence, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal held a press conference today in which he announced compensation to the riot victims. The CM of Delhi also reacted to the party's councilor Tahir Hussain. On the question of inciting a riot on Tahir, he said, ‘There should be no politics on violence. If it is the Aam Aadmi Party, double punish him. Whoever is guilty punish him with the harshest punishment.’ Announcing the compensation, he said, ‘The government will try to give compensation of 3-3 lakh to orphaned children in violence, compensation of 5 lakh for the entire house burning.’
