Bhopal, May 29: In a shocking development, Bajrang Dal the youth wing of Vishwa Hindu Parishad is providing arms training to its cadre in Madhya Pradesh’s Rajgarh district in a bid to fight against alleged ‘anti-nationals and love jihadist’.
According to news agency ANI, the camp was organised from May 3 to May 11, where the selected members from 32 districts were given the training to use rifles, swords, and lathis to ‘tackle anti-national, love jihad elements.’
Speaking to ANI, Bajrang Dal District Convenor, Devi Singh Sondhia said,” This is a routine camp which we organize annually to tackle anti-national, love jihad elements. It started in the year 1984.”
On the other hand, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said that no one will be allowed to take law in their hand.
Madhya Pradesh BJP spokesman Rajneesh Agrawal stated, “There is a rule of law and constitution in the country and in this case, no one will be allowed to take over the law. Appropriate action will be taken by the government.”
Meanwhile, the Congress also rebuffed the training camp while asking the Centre to take immediate action against it.
Congress spokesman Pankaj Chaturvedi said, “Such a law should not be allowed to be taken in hand. Do the people taking this training not have belief in our armed forces?
The Government should take immediate action against it”, he added.
