On Sunday, February 5, the "Dharma Sansad," or Hindu Parliament, held a protest in New Delhi's Jantar Mantar in support of Dhirendra Krishna Shastri, the 26-year-old chief priest of the Bageshwar Dham temple, also known as Bageshwar Dham Sarkar.
Shastri has been featured in the news over allegations against his YouTube channels for his hate speech against religious minorities and superstitions.
The Hindu Parliament demanded the provision of Z plus security to Shastri, the declaration of the Ramacharitmanas as the national scripture, and raised genocidal slogans against Muslims and Christians to establish a Hindu Rashtra.
Many videos of the offensive remarks of the speakers at the event have been widely shared on social media.
The speakers included retired IPS officer and President of the Rashtra Nirman Party, Anand Kumar, media coordinator of the BJP’s Haryana unit and Chief of caste supremacist group Karni Sena, Suraj Pal Amu, and other Hindutva leaders like Swami Bhakt Hari Singh, Ragini Tiwari, Aastha Maa, and Annapurna Bharti.
Hindutva groups also protested in support of Sudarshan TV Editor-in-Chief and Hindutva activist against the observations made by the Supreme Court on his hate speech during an event organized by the Hindutva group, the Hindu Yuva Vahini, on December 9, 2021.
Here, Chavhanke administered an oath to “die for and kill” to make India a Hindu nation.
The speakers, on Sunday, accused the Supreme Court of being partial to Muslims and stated that nothing was wrong in the oath mentioned above.
“Would you spare those who stop us from making Hindu Rashtra? Won’t you teach them a lesson?” stated Suraj Pal Amu.
The Delhi Police took no action against any speakers at these events. Moreover, the police said no hate speech was made at the event. Last month, the Supreme Court then criticized the police for their lack of progress in the investigation.
Since then, the Delhi Police has issued a notice under Section 149 of the Criminal Procedure Code, against an online portal, Molitics, which had reported about the events. The police asked Molitics to stop posting allegedly offensive, malicious, and inciteful content.
