Ever since the country witnessed ugly scenes of violence in the garb of peaceful CAA-NRC protests, Uttar Pradesh has emerged as the state which has dealt with such violence in the most effective and appropriate manner. The UP Police has in particular dealt severely with violent “protesters”. The police not only dealt effectively with the rioters at the ground level but has also set the criminal law machinery in motion against them.
However, while the UP police deals with the law and order situation on ground, it has also been fighting against the social media assault on it by anti-government and Islamist elements which sympathise with the unruly mobs that took over the streets of Uttar Pradesh.
The administrations of several Uttar Pradesh districts served recovery notices upon 130 rioters for destructing public property during anti-CAA violence and has fined them up to Rs. 50 lakh to avoid attachment of properties.
Therefore, the rioters and hooligans have not been allowed to damage and destroy public property with impunity and they are being made to pay up for the loss suffered by the state owing to their violent activities.
Apart from serving recovery notices, the UP Police has also put up reward posters of suspected rioters in Kanpur, Firozabad, and Mau. Uttar Pradesh Police has also circulated images of wanted persons on WhatsApp and Facebook, seeking their whereabouts in Firozabad and Gorakhpur. In Mau alone, police have released posters of 110 suspects. Apart from this, posters of 48 suspects involved in violence have been released in Kanpur, while a poster with photographs of 80 suspects has been released in Firozabad.

The UP Police has also exposed the rioters and debunked the fake narrative that the CAA-NRC protesters were trying to push. Days after violence took grip of the Firozabad district of Uttar Pradesh, the local administration and police used drones which led to scan the rooftops of violence-hit areas. This led to the startling revelation of bricks, stones and other materials stocked up on rooftops of certain households, meant to be used in violence, in areas of Nalband Chouraha, Naini Glass Chouraha and Jatavpuri in the district. This shows how violence was fomented in a pre-planned manner in accordance with a well thought out conspiracy.
There are several videos which clearly reveal how rioters were spotted brandishing guns during the CAA-NRC protests. Police too has released footage of rioters using illegal firearms against the police. There is also clear proof of the rioters firing at police personnel in the form of video footage.
The UP Police has also revealed that 263 police personnel have been injured in violence across the state. It is pertinent to mention here that 57 of them received bullet injuries showing how the hooligans and rioters tried to inflict casualties upon police personnel. One of the police personnel was shot in the chest, however, a few coins, ATM cards and a picture of Lord Shiva inside a wallet in the inner side of his jacket saved him.
All such events prove how violence has not been restricted to stone-pelting, vandalism and arson. In fact, the police personnel seem to have been targeted in a pre-planned manner, which gets further corroborated by reports of involvement of SIMI-affiliate PFI in Lucknow violence.
Watch how an anti-CAA rioter (the chap in blue with his face covered in black) pulled out his gun and fired at UP police in Meerut, who just had fibreglass shield to defend themselves…

The fake news spread by the “liberal” gang has also been exposed by the UP Police. Take the case of Aligarh Muslim University for example. It was alleged that the police had barged into the University campus by breaking the University gate. However, UP Police recently tweeted a video, which makes it amply clear that contrary to what was being propagated, it was actually the University students who had broken the AMU gate. The police, therefore, stood vindicated on its stand that it had to resort to tear gas munitions in order to control the situation. Another video tweeted by the UP Police shows how the police were appealing for peace, while the “student-activists” can be seen going on an absolute rampage.
A reaffirmation of our earlier stand that the AMU gate was not broken down by any security agency.@ndtv @ANINewsUP @News18UP @htTweets @ABPNews @ZEEUPUK @aajtak @TOILucknow @bstvlive https://t.co/ZMYqXZqCGO pic.twitter.com/qNv71Few25

The police has also not shied away from arresting those involved in violence and rioting. Around 5,400 people have been taken into custody by the UP Police and 705 of them have been sent to jail. It also arrested the Uttar Pradesh head of the radical Islamist organisation, PFI along with two aides for inciting anti-CAA violence.
Even PM Modi has hit out at violent rioters over vandalism of public property and also said, “They (the vandals) should ask themselves was it right. Whatever was torched, was it not of their child’s use? What has happened to those common people and policemen who got injured?” He also said that those against the amended citizenship law should understand that rights and duties go hand in hand. The UP Police has therefore exposed the anti CAA rioters badly.
The manner in which UP Police has fined, arrested and exposed anti CAA rioters has left the left-liberal cabal fuming. This is why disgusting and heartless propaganda has suddenly cropped up against the UP Police. The police are being suddenly accused attacking innocent citizens. Media outlets like the National Herald, the mouthpiece of the Congress has been at the forefront of this bitter and heartless propaganda against the UP Police. However, the UP Police has set a very good precedent when it comes to tackling anti-CAA rioters. While partisan dailies and media outlets like The Telegraph and National Herald have been running obnoxious propaganda against the UP Police, the entire nation stands firmly with the UP Police given the stern manner with which it has dealt with the anti CAA rioters and hooligans.
