Hindu leaders to take up their issues with CP

Ludhiana, July 8

After an attack on Shiv Sena leader Sandeep Thapar, alias Gora, by Nihangs, other party leaders, along with representatives of several other Hindu organisations, today decided to meet Police Commissioner (CP) Kuldeep Singh Chahal.

Rajiv Tandon, chairman, Shiv Sena Punjab, said before holding a meeting of all Hindu organisations of the state, a meeting of city-based leaders was held here today. During the meeting, it was decided that they would meet the Ludhiana CP on Tuesday.

When asked about the purpose of meeting, Tandon said, “After an attack on our leader Thapar, some Nihangs and hardliners have been uploading videos against him. They say the attack on Thapar is a right decision of Nihangs. Some have even uploaded videos offering full support to the assailants.”

Tandon said one of the post shared by a person on the social media states, “We will give them legal support if someone shares the address of Nihangs who attacked the Shiv Sena leader.” Thapar had rammed his scooter into Nihangs after which arguments ensued which were followed by an attack on him.

Tandon said, “There are other posts by some Nihangs on the social media in which they are terming the attack as the right decision. Nihangs are openly issuing warnings on the social media that they will not spare Shiv Sena leaders in the future too.”

“We will meet the CP to raise these issues. If the police gives warning that anyone restoring to hate speech on the social media would face FIR then why a case is not registered against persons who are openly threatening Hindu leaders and supporting the assailants (Nihangs),” said Tandon.

Tandon said if Thapar’s Facebook page was deactivated why social media pages of persons, who were threatening Hindu leaders and celebrating the attack on Thapar, were still active.

Notably, the CP had warned the public that any person, who hurts religious sentiments of any person, through social, electronic or print media, would face stern action as per the law.
