Shocking incidents of imposing ‘nationalism’, in this case on Muslims resurfaced from Haryana‘s Hisar district. In two separate incidents, two persons were allegedly harassed for not saying ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’.
While communal terror is on the rise, tension gripped Hisar on Tuesday evening after an unidentified person allegedly slapped a Muslim youth for not saying ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’ during a Bajrang Dal protest against the terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims. However, since there was heavy police force at the spot, the situation was taken under control, reported Hindustan Times.
Notably, no complaints have been received in this regard. Although, reports suggest that the leaders changed the protest venue fromParizat chowk and reached near a mosque at Lahoriya Chowk. Some Bajrang Dal activists allegedly started raising slogans of ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’ and asked a Muslim youth returning after offering namaz to do the same. After the incident, police tightened security around the mosque.
“Are we guilty of attacking anyone? We all are brothers. It is my demand that the police must arrange proper security around the mosque and arrest the accused,” Harphul Khan Bhatti, chief of the Hisar unit of Muslim Kalyan Committee said.
“No one from Bajrang Dal manhandled anyone. We also came to know about this. We only protested against terrorism and left from there. We are not aware what happened after that,” Kapil Vats, Hisar unit leader of Bajrang Dal, said.
In another shocking incident, a bunch of Bajrang Dal activists on Wednesday resorted to ‘goonism’ and blew slaps and abuses on an Imam of a mosque.
In a video, the Bajrang Dal goons could be seen putting pressure on the imam to speak ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ and ‘Vande Mataram’, and when he refused to speak; they blew punches on him and thereafter threatened him.
One of the workers said, “No Hindu is safe in a Muslim dominant area”. He further asserted “We wouldn’t let any Muslim live here and would ensure they are kicked out”, reported ABP.
