The Right wing and their agenda to arm the youth

June saw a lot of weapons and arms training mostly in the northern part of the country

Firearms training organised mostly by right wing groups like Rashtriya Bajrang Dal of Pravin Togadia took place in Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat and Rajasthan. Togadia’s organisation has been imparting such training for young Hindu boys and girls over days.

On social media the pictures of these events get posted but what kind of actual training is imparted and what are they motivated to fight for, one can only imagine. Togadia himself has been a repeat hate offender, persistently speaking against the Muslim community, hence, these training are bound to ring alarm bells. Yet, the administration and law enforcement in these states do not find these events to be violating any law, even though they are violating laws, specifically the Arms Act.

Under the Arms Act, section 9, anyone under the age of 21 is prohibited to possess or acquire any firearm or ammunition.

In these trainings held in Surendra Nagar (June 25) and Ahmedabad (June 1) in Gujarat, it can be seen in the video that  men are being trained in using firearms and general physical fitness by conducting exercises. In the training in Surendra Nagar, there are pictures of rifles and young boys and girls being trained.


The training of Valsad, Gujarat was held between May 27 to May 30.

The training in Fatehnagar, Rajasthan was conducted for middle aged men, as well as young and minor  boys who were being trained in using sticks and swords as well. The said video surfaced on June 6.

In Bijnor, UP, the training was held on June 18 and June 19 to young boys, many of these were minors can be seen in this video.

In Panchkula, Haryana, a video surfaced on June 19 where young boys were being given training in operating rifles and sword fighting.
