Yati Narsinghanand under police scanner for calling for boycott of Centre's 'Har Ghar Tiranga' campaign

Narsinghanand was arrested on January 15 after he called for the genocide of Muslims at a 'Dharam Sansad' or religious conclave at Haridwar.

 

 

Yati Narsinghanand, a controversial Hindu seer who propagates Hindutva, has come under police scanner after he called upon Hindus to boycott Centre's “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign launched to mark the 75th Independence Day.

In a video that went viral on social media, the hate speech accused is seen claiming that the campaign would end up benefitting a Muslim-owned company in West Bengal.

After the video was circulated widely, Superintendent of Police (Rural) Iraj Raja said they are looking into the matter and would take appropriate legal action accordingly under relevant sections of law.

In the video, Yati is heard saying that to manufacture flags on a mass scale, the government has given contract to a West bengal-based company that is owned by a Muslim named Salauddin, and added that Hindus are the “biggest hypocrites in the world.” "When these people came in power they awarded government tenders to Muslims. The money which Hindus will pay to buy tricolour would be pocketed by a Muslim and that will be donated to 'Jihadis,'' he said.

“This is one big conspiracy against Hindus. If you [Hindus] want to stay alive, then stop giving your money to Muslims in the name of this campaign," he added.

The video was released earlier this month but it came to light only on Friday.

In July, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign encouraging citizens to display the tricolour at their homes from August 13 to 15.

Narsinghanand was arrested on January 15 after he called for the genocide of Muslims at a 'Dharam Sansad' or religious conclave at Haridwar and got bail in the case on February 7.

However, on April 17, he delivered another inflammatory speech in Himachal Pradesh where he asked Hindus to have more children to make sure India does not become an Islamic country.
