Bajrang Dal stops Hindus from celebrating Christmas in Assam

Gowhatti, December 27 (KMS): A Hindutva mob associated with Bajrang Dal stopped Hindus from celebrating Christmas in Indian disturbed state of Assam.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the Bajrang Dal goons manhandled non-Christians at the town’s Presbyterian Church near the Cachar district police headquarters of the state, locals said.

In a video uploaded on social media, a leader of the Bajrang Dal’s local unit, said “We have an issue with the Hindus who went against their dharma to sing Merry Christmas instead of observing ‘Tulsi Divas’.

In the video, Bajrang Dal members donning saffron scarves and chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’ also said they locked the church after 11 p.m.

A similar incident happened in Silchar during Christmas in 2020 with members of radical Hindu groups preventing Hindus from participating in a festival “meant for Christians only”.
