Citizens for Justice and peace has knocked on the doors of the Allahabad High Court seeking directions to take strict action against Mahant Bajrang Muni Das who has recently made calls for mass genocide of Muslim community. Doused by the madness of creating a ‘Hindu Rashtra’, Bajrang Muni said in a video:
“In order to make a Hindu Rashtra, we will have to exterminate the Muslim community. Until Muslims are completely exterminated, Bharat cannot become Hindu Rashtra. The entire world knows that Bharat was Hindu Rashtra and we were living in peace. However, due to Muslim jihadis, this country could not remain a Hindu Rashtra. So now we must now take vengeance. “We cannot wait for India to become a Hindu rashtra, we have to speed it up and that is possible only when we finish off those with a jihadi mindset”
We have pointed out in our Letter petition to the Acting Chief Justice Pritinker Diwakar that last year in April as well he had delivered a hate speech denigrating Muslim women. He spoke into a microphone connected to loudspeaker from a vehicle, parked outside a mosque in Sitapur, saying, “If you tease a single [Hindu] girl, I will abduct your daughters and daughters-in-law from your house, and rape them in public.” He was arrested for thidd, but then granted bail by a local court within 10 days.
This makes him a repeat offender, warranting more strict action. “Such a speech coming from a man who enjoys ‘social respectability’ as a monk in saffron robes, who displays his social power to detriment, is potentially not just stigmatizing but a direct threat to members of the Muslim minority,” the petition states.
The petition highlights the frequency at which such speeches are made.
Hon’ble Sir, while this may seem like a random remark made by a hate offender, we would like to point out that several such hate speeches are being made across the country by various such repeated hate offenders and all of them enjoy impunity. Such rampant calls for genocide and violence against Muslim community are made almost on a daily basis and the videos are circulated by the perpetrators themselves on social media. This shows how brazen these hate offenders are and how little care and respect they have for the law of the land. This is majorly due to the inaction on the part of the Police in such cases. This has created a public atmosphere of fear and intimidation for India’s minorities, a state that is unhealthy for any society.
While CJP has continued in its endeavour to attempt to bring these offenders to book, by writing to concerned authorities and in making cases warning them when such speeches will be made, no real action has been forthcoming. Hence, a letter petition to the High Court has become pertinent.
