At Navi Mumbai rally, calls issued for Muslim genocide, economic boycott ( Maktoob Media )

Hate Watch

A Hindu Jan Aakrosh Morcha rally was held in Vashi in Navi Mumbai on Sunday, during which calls were given for the Muslim genocide and the economic boycott of the Muslim community.

This is the third Hindutva gathering of its kind being organised by Sakal Hindu Samaj in Mumbai in the past month.

The rally comes in the backdrop of recent Supreme Court directives, wherein the bench of Justice K M Joseph and J B Pardiwala directed that the Hindu Jan Aakrosh Morcha in Mumbai would be allowed only if ‘no hate speech’ is guaranteed.

The Sakal Hindu Samaj claimed that they were protesting against ‘love jihad’ and ‘land jihad’, the two Islamophobic campaigns coined by Hindutva groups to spread anti-Muslim hatred across India.

The saffron mob marched for about 3 km from Vashi’s Blue Diamond Chowk to Shivaji Chowk on Sunday and many BJP leaders including Ganesh Naik MLA were at the rally.

The Sakal Hindu Samaj is a collective of many Hindutva militant groups including Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal.

The slogans for Muslim genocide were raised throughout the rally.
