After the killer gang leader of Bajrang Dal, Monu Manesar, was accused of killing two Muslim men, Junaid and Nasir, from Rajasthan in Haryana, members of the right-wing organisations VHP (Vishva Hindu Parishad) and Bajrang Dal took out a rally in his support on Saturday.
“Jo ham se takrayega choor choor hojayega” (Those who clash with us will be razed to dust), “Monu Bhai aagey badho hum tumharey saath hain” (Monu brother, move forward! We are with you!) and “Gau rakshakoun ke samman mei, har Hindu maidan mei” (For the respect of cow vigilantes, every Hindu will step into the field) slogans were raised in the rally.
Saffron men also raised slogans against the Rajasthan government after a case was booked against the Hindutva outfit members in Gopalgarh on Wednesday.
Monu Manesar has been an active Bajrang Dal member since 2016. On several occasions, he has shared photos of himself with high-profile politicians, including Union Home Minister Amit Shah and police officials.
He used to share videos of himself and other members of the Bajrang Dal brandishing guns and threatening Muslim men, several of whom were seen brutally wounded.
“We cannot expect anything from the Rajasthan government; hence the CBI must be involved. They are trying to misuse this opportunity for political gains. This is against the law. We will hold Mahapanchayats to protest against this,” said a VHP leader during a press conferences in Gurgaon.
Meanwhile, Mohit Yadav alias Monu Manesar, who has been named in an FIR filed in connection with the death of Junaid Nair, whose charred bodies were found in a burnt vehicle in Bhiwani on Thursday, is untraceable, said Gurgaon Police. The cops also said that teams are conducting searches to arrest him.
