New Delhi, December 23 (KMS): A series of incendiary video clips have surfaced on social media showing prominent Hindutva figures, including serial offender Yati Narsighanand Saraswati, giving genocidal speeches targeting Muslims.
The speeches were made during a three-day hate speech conclave organised by the controversial Hindutva leader, Yati Narsighanand Saraswati from 17 to 19 December in Haridwar city of the Indian state of Uttrakhand. The speakers are seen openly giving calls to kill members of minority community and attack their places of worship.
In his fiery speech, Saraswati advised Hindus to pick up “better weapons” instead of the conventional swords to fight the minorities. He shouted slogans inciting armed struggle against Muslims.
Another speaker, Sagar Sindhuraj Maharaj, made a fervent appeal to the people to spend money on buying weapons instead of smartphones.
Annapurna Maa, general secretary of Hindu Mahasabha, openly called for mass killing of minorities. “If you want to finish them off, then kill them… We need 100 soldiers who can kill 20 lakh of them to win this,” she said.
Another Hindutva figure, Dharamdas Maharaj from Bihar, brazenly claimed that he would have repeated the act of Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse shooting former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for his pro-minority remarks in the Parliament.
Another notorious Hindutva hate monger, Anand Swaroop Maharaj, proclaimed that they would wage a war against the government if it failed to make the country a Hindu rashtra.
He also threatened that they won’t allow people to celebrate Christmas in Haridwar or other festivals of Christians and Muslims in the state of Uttarakhand.
