“I want to ask how many forts are safe. On over 100 forts, they have either built majids or some fakir’s dargahs. I want to request the ASI (Archeological Survey of India) to survey all forts that have been captured by them. I want to request Devendra Fadnavis and CM Shinde to liberate all forts of Maharaj that have been captured,” said Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader T Raja Singh in a rally in Thane’s Mira Road, adjacent to Mumbai, on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Chhattrapati Shivaji Maharaj.

Other than this unsubstantiated claim, the 40-minute address on Sunday, 25 February, had references to ‘love jihad’, Uniform Civil Code (UCC), and an oath to fight for a ‘Hindu-Rashtra.’

The rally organised by Sakal Hindu Samaj (SHS), an umbrella body of right-wing Hindutva outfits, witnessed the presence of over 5,000 Hindu youths, SHS leaders, and local BJP MLA Geeta Jain.
