News Desk: Hindutva leader Anand Swaroop, who was accused in the Haridwar Dharam Sansad case, threatened to bomb assembly if Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati and Jitendra Narayan Singh Tyagi are not released in connection with the Haridwar Dharam Sansad case.
Speaking to reporters at another similar Dharma Sansad organised in Prayagraj on Sunday, the Hindutva leader said that religious order has been passed and the country has been declared a Hindu Rashtra. The community has three demands that are being conveyed to the government through the press and social media.
“The order has been passed to 125 crore Hindus in the country to record history accordingly. It is essential to expand the agitation and pressurise the government, which will eventually bow down to the demand of the public,” claimed Swaroop.
Swaroop proposed three demands of the Dharma Sansad. The first is that the country be declared a Hindu Rashtra.
“The Prime Minister has been directed to rectify the ‘constitutional error’ of calling it a secular state and strengthen the anti-conversion law by awarding a death sentence to those who convert. And lastly, we demand the release of our two religious warriors, who have been arrested.
“If our warriors are not released within the span of a week, the government must get ready to face dire consequences. It is possible that the Bhagat Singh assembly incident may reoccur” threatened Swaroop with a smile, refering to the Central Assembly Bombing Case by freedom fighters Bhagat Singh and BK Dutt in a protest against the British imperialism and the unpopular Trade Disputes Bill.
Haridwar Dharam Sansad hate speech case
At a three day Dharma Sansad between December 17-19 where various Hindutva leaders spew hate openly against religious minorities with the slogan ‘shastra mev jayte’.
Swaroop, in the Haridwar Dharma Sansad, had threatened a revolt of that of 1857 if the government does not listen to their demands of a Hindu Rashtra. He had also threatened people, hotels, and restaurants in Haridwar not to celebrate Christmas or else face consequences.
When videos from the hate conclave surfaced on social media, complaints were registered with the police against the leaders. Arrests were made only a month after, as the Supreme Court intervened.
