SILCHAR: The Cachar district administration of Assam has asked the police to investigate an inflammatory speech reportedly made by a local Bajrang Dal leader threatening to beat up Hindus visiting churches during Christmas celebrations.
Taking note of a viral video in which the saffron outfit’s leader was seen issuing the threat, Cachar deputy commissioner Keerthi Jalli on Sunday said she has instructed the superintendent of police to probe the matter and “take necessary steps”. Police, however, said no case has been registered as of now and the incident is being investigated.
Bajrang Dal Cachar in-charge Mithun Nath, while addressing a gathering of the outfit’s members on December 3, was seen telling them that no Hindus will be allowed to visit churches during Christmas.
“Hindus will be beaten up. The Christians will lock down our temples and we will go to have fun in their churches – I condemn such Hindus. They need to be taught a lesson,” he had said.
