The Delhi communal riots, that began with parts of the city burning on Sunday and continued into the week, have been drawing attention not just within the nation, but also across the world..

And the latest voice to come forward on the violence is Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters.

In a video that has gone viral on social media, Waters, co-founder and guitarist of the English rock band, is seen calling the controversial Citizenship law ‘fascist and racist’.

The 76-year-old, who was a part of the protests in London for the release of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, also quoted a poem by Delhi-based poet and activist Aamir Aziz. Reading an English translation of Aziz’s ‘Sab Yaad Rakha Jaayega’, Waters began, “Everything will be remembered. Killers, we will become ghosts and write of your killings, with all the evidence. You write jokes in courts, we will write justice on the walls...We will speak so loudly that even the deaf will hear…”

After reciting the poem, Aziz remarked, ‘this kid’s got a future’, referring to the young poet.

The video that has since gone viral on social media also caught singer Vishal Dadlani’s attention. The 46-year-old was quick to respond to the video, tagging Prime Minister Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, in a tweet the world is watching us, the world is watching you.’
