Hate monger and serial hate speaker Suresh Chavhanke, editor-in-chief of Sudarshan TV, delivered yet another communal speech. Chavhanke, who is known for giving speeches and making statements that are communal, divisive, incendiary and amount to hate speeches, with the knowledge that such incendiary remarks would have the propensity to stoke tensions inter se persons belonging to certain communities, and also would directly instigate violence, as has been happening in the recent times, pitted the Hindus against the Muslims again. Choosing Noida, Uttar Pradesh as his hotspot this time, he raised open calls for the Hindus to keep swords on them, and raise arms against the Muslim community.
In his speech, Chavhanke has openly threated to use force and violence against the minorities in order to make India an undivided Hindu nation. He also urged the government to change the name of the streets in Delhi and rename them to Hindu leaders. It is essential to note here that on March 19, in Maharashtra, when Aurangabad had been renamed as Sambhajinagar, Suresh Chavhanke, along with T. Raja Singh, had given hate speeches which has resulted in the rampant destruction of public property and pelting of stones. Many Islamophobic statement were made and anti-Muslim slurs were used. Notably, FIRs had also been filed against these two. And yet, Almost 2 months later, a hate speech on the similar script has been given by Chavhanke, demanding for more names to be changed, inciting the public for more violence.
The transcript of the fill speech can be read here:
“In India, elections will only take place 3 or 4 more times, for 15 years or for 20 years, elections are not an option after that.”
“In the last 75 years, we have seen roads named after Babur, Humanyun, etc., will these remain the same in the future? A new parliament house has been made, the names of these roads should also be changed to Maharana Pratap road, Prithviraj Chauhan road, Chhtrapati Shivaji Maharaj road, Sambhaji Maharaj road.”
“So many villages and districts still have Islami names, who will change them? Yogi changed the name to Prayagraj, giving a nod to the .name changings, but people need to do it on a district level too. If you don’t change the name now, then in any case the names of the Hindu towns and villages will be changed in 20 years. So, while the time is on our side, we should make name changing an agenda.”
“Today, Akbar is taking away our daughters, what are we doing? They are breaking our temples on a daily basis. If Maharana Pratap were here, would they be able to break our temples? If Maharana Pratap were there, would there be a mosque on Mathura-Janmabhoomi. On our Mahadev mandir, we made such a big corridor, but we have not even been able to worship our Lord.”
“In Kashi, where the Pm of India, the Chief Minister of the state, and many devotees like me, go to worship, do you know that it is an imitation and the real shivling is buried in Gyanvapi? Even as we celebrate the 75th year of Independence, in this Amrit Kaal, I will only think of it as complete independence when the 4.5 lakh temples that are beneath the mosques are freed.”
“In Devbandh, in Mathura, the Muslims there were not letting us Hindus celebrate the birth anniversary of Krishna. The Hindus there then said that we should call Suresh Chavhanke, then these Muslims will shut up. The Hindus there called me, and at 12 am, we celebrated Krishna Jayanti, and no one’s Abu had the audacity to stop us from celebrating it.”
“The result was that the next day, 28 Chauhan Muslim families came to meet me. They said to me that we watch you on TV, we are Chauhan just as you are. They also told me that nobody is inviting us to speak, our coming generations are not even using the Chauhan name in their surnames. They said that in the Madrasas these children are studying in, the characteristic of their children is being changed. They said that they want protect the culture of their children, and they must be converted to Hindus.”
“I told these people to come to me, and I spoke to them, then performed Ghar-wapasi with them. We also got them houses. If we don’t do this, we won’t be saved.”
“The children performed a very good play before us. But, these children of Rajput’s are playing with toy swords, what can be sadder than this. I want to urge everyone that just like Sikhs have been given the right to keep kripans with them, Kshatriyas should also be allowed to keep swords with them.”
“Today, someone named Razia Sultana is here. I want to apologise to her that you still have to write your name as Razia Sultana, and have not been able to write it as Radha. This is our weakness, and I want to apologise for this.”

Every word uttered by Suresh Chavhanke is offensive for the Muslim community and instigation for the Hindu community. It is imperative that strict and stringent action be taken against Chavhanke, holding him responsible for the inflammatory statements and to prevent any act of incidents of violence before or after the inauguration of the new parliament.
