A video of Pravin Togadia, president of the far-right extremist Hindutva group, Antarashtriya Hindu Parishad (AHP), administering an oath to hundreds of Hindus has been gaining attention on social media. The offender in the video uses hate speech when addressing a big audience and saying that they need to work on getting a Population control law, “love jihad” law, and to kick out Bangladeshis (often reference for Muslims) out of India. The incident has been reported from Palwal district of Haryana.

The oath administered by Pravin Togadia:

“Samrudh Hindu (Prosperous Hindu)

Surakshit Hindu (Safe Hindu)

Har Hindu (Every Hindu)

Har Parivar, Humara Gaon, Humara Hindu Samaaj, Humara Hindu Dharma, Humara Hindu Rashtra (Every family, our village, our Hindu society, our Hindu religion, our Hindu country)

Isliye hum jansankhya niyam ka kanoon banwaenge (That is why we will make a law of population rules)

Samaan nagrik kanoon banwaenge (We will enact a uniform civil law)

Anti-love jihad kanoon banwaenge (Anti-love jihad law will be enacted)

Bangladeshiyon ko bhagwaenge (Bangladeshis will be driven away)”

The crowd then chanted ‘Jai Shree Ram’

Previous instances of Hate Speech against Muslims

Hatred is the chosen metaphor for Pravin Togadia, the international general secretary of the AHP. Pravin Togadia has given anti-Muslim hate speeches on multiple occasions since his inflammatory comments in Gujarat and central India in the early 2000s. He has consistently targeted the Muslim community, calling them Bangladeshis, and raised demands for problematic and discriminatory laws, such as the population control law or the love jihad law.

In his speech made on April 6, in Golokganj, Dhubri district, last year, he had claimed that Dhubri now has only “20% Hindus” with 12,00,000 Muslims having “infiltrated” from Bangladesh, and had demanded a DNA test of Muslim migrants who came here after 1951. 

On December 11, 2022, Togadia had again brazenly targeted the minority community, demanding that they be barred from equality of existence and constitutional rights. Addressing a mob there, he had said, "I'll bring in a law whereby there can be no SP, PM, DM from any other community."  He had further added, "In my Hindu rastra there will be no Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas. For me, vikas (development) is only for Hindus.  He also claimed, "It's our land and we are its rightful heirs."  "We will bring the Uniform Civil Code just like Ram Mandir and will control the Muslim population." He had gone on to say that, "In my regime, no Muslim (will) get any constitutional post".
