Congress demands ban on VHP, Bajrang Dal even as Pehlu Khan’s mother demands justice for her son


Leader of Opposition in Rajasthan Assembly, Rameshwar Dudi today demanded ban on the Bajrang Dal and the VHP accusing them of trying to fuel communal tension in the state in the name of cow protection.

On the Alwar lynching case, he said, “People belonging to the minority communities rear cows in various parts of the state. But organisations like the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the Bajrang Dal want to decide on the basis of religion that who will rear cows, which is unacceptable.”

These outfits are trying to fuel communal tension and spread terror in the name of cow protection. These organisations should be banned, Dudi said.

“State Congress president Sachin Pilot had demanded a CBI inquiry in the matter and we will raise the issue in the state Assembly,” he said in a press conference here.

This came on the day a video of self-styled cow protector Sadhvi Kamal Didi equating one of the accused in the Alwar lynching case with revolutionaries Bhagat Singh and Chandra Shekhar Azad went viral.

A video of the sadhvi meeting the one of the right-wing terrorists, Vipin Yadav, when he came to appear for his annual examination at a college in Behror in Alwar district has gone viral.

In the video, the Sadhvi was seen telling Yadav, “The entire country is with you. If we will not do such things in our country than who else will. You need not worry about anything.”

Comparing Yadav with revolutionaries of the freedom movement, she said, “People like Bhagat Singh, Chandra Shekhar Azad and Sukhdev did not do anything wrong.”

The most shocking visual was of the cops accompanying the right-wing terrorist. As Sadhvi made astonishing claims justifying the act of terror, the cops smiled.

Earlier this month, a 55-year-old man died at a hospital in Alwar district after being beaten by a group of right-wing terrorists posing themselves as cow protectors.

The deceased, Pehlu Khan, and four others, including his two sons, were beaten brutally by some locals at Behror who suspected they were smuggling cows.

Khan’s 85-year-old mother, who can’t see due to lost eyesight, is in Delhi to demand justice for his son.

Ankuri Beegam is currently protesting at Jantar Mantar in front of a hoarding with the message, “Mother of Pehlu Khan, Ankuri Beegam, demands justice.”

She told reporters, “It has been more than two weeks and authorities are yet to arrest the accused. I want justice for my son, who was an innocent man and died a brutal death.”

Unfortunately, her desperate plea for justice has fallen on the deaf ears of the members of media fraternity, which is alleged to have surrendered its freedom before the current BJP government at the Centre.
