Two weeks after a mosque located outside Shahjahanabad Apartments in Dwarka’s Sector 11 was attacked, the locality is witnessing an expression of apology and assertion of communal amity on the part of the majority community. A group of Hindus from the area have put up posters saying “We Love Muslims”, “We are Sorry” and “You are Us”, news website The Quint reported.

A user posted photos of the posters on Twitter :


The mosque was allegedly attacked early in the morning on February 28.

“The attack took place at around 2:30 am. The attackers threw several stones at the mosque and broke the window-pane,” Saad Majeed, a resident of Shahjahanabad Apartments was quoted as saying.

There were two people present in the mosque at the time – Imam Rashid and Imam Abdul Mannan. According to them, the attackers chanted “Jai Shri Ram” after throwing stones. Chaman, the security guard, was present too and testifies to the sequence of events.

However, DCP Dwarka later tweeted that the incident never happened.


Residents allege that the police want to downplay the incident.
