“The school has been running since 1987. The incident happened around 5 pm on Tuesday. They came and burnt down everything. We have lost records of 30 years. The only thing we are thankful is that there were no children at that time in the school, otherwise the loss would have been huge,” Bhisham Sharma, the owner of the school, said the rioters burnt books worth Rs 70 lakh. Shaheen, parent of a class 7 student of the school said, “Why did the rioters have to burn down a school which educates students? They are burning everything else and could have spared schools. What about the children who are awaiting their final exams? Their year-long effort will go waste.” #DelhiViolence #DelhiRiots #DelhiBurning #islamophobia #genocideindelhi #Delhigenocide
