After a Hindu panchayad called for the creation of a "Hindu Rashtra District" in the Northeast Delhi area, the organisers have been booked by the police.
The Delhi Police has booked the organisers of the meeting for holding the event without permission, reported PTI. A senior police official said a case has been registered against the organisers under IPC section 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) as they did not take permission for holding the meet.
The panchayat also asked its residents not to sell or rent out their properties to minorities.
Once more facts emerge during the investigation, action will be taken accordingly, another police officer said.
The meet in northeast Delhi was organised by BJP leader and Hindu United Front head Jai Bhagwan Goyal and attended by BJP Parliamentary Board member and former Union minister Satyanarayan Jatiya and former north Delhi mayor Awatar Singh among others.
What was said in the meet?
A senior police official said a case has been registered against the organisers under IPC section 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) as they did not take permission for holding the meet.
Addressing the gathering, Goyal said no Hindu should sell or rent out his or her houses or shops to members of other religions.
"We will first make north-east Delhi a Hindu Rashtra district and then the entire country a Hindu Rashtra," he said.
In February 2020, the riots in northeast Delhi had left 53 people dead and more than 700 injured.
Referring to the north-east Delhi riots, he alleged that there was a plan to turn the area into a "mini Pakistan".
Goyal also warned people against what he claimed a plan to turn India into "Ghazwa-e-Hind".
"These people wearing caps are planning to convert India into 'Ghazwa-e-Hind' by 2047 at the behest of Islamic countries like Pakistan. If we do not wield 'trishul' and come on the roads then our sisters could be forced to wear burqa and children skull caps," he alleged.
Addressing the gathering, Surya Chaitanya Maharaj said Hindus need to unite to make north-east Delhi a Hindu Rashtra first and then the whole country.
A Delhi BJP spokesperson said the event did not have the approval of the party and that Goyal was not holding any party post.
