ANKARA – Erdogan Condemns Communal Riots in Delhi. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, on Thursday, reacted strongly against “massacres” of Muslims in Delhi.
According to details, these communal riots in New Delhi have left 38 dead. President Erdogan said “India right now has become a country where massacres are widespread. What massacres? Massacres of Muslims. By who? Hindus. Erdogan said this during a speech in Ankara.
Erdogan, a devout Muslim, sees himself as a defender of Islam, often taking public stands on issues concerning the faith and its followers. He accused the mobs attacking Muslims of hurting children studying in private tuition centres with “metal sticks as if to kill” them. “How will these people make global peace possible? It is impossible. When making speeches – since they have a large population – they say ‘we are strong’ but that is not strength,” Erdogan added. Erdogan Condemns Communal Riots in Delhi.
