Controversy Over Congress' Promise To Ban Bajrang Dal Continues To Escalate; VHP Sends Rs 100 Crore Notice To Kharge

New Delhi: Controversy over ban on Bajrang Dal promised by Congress in its manifesto for Karnataka election refuses to die down. In Madhya Pradesh's Jabalpur and Balaghat districts the activists of Hindu outfits targeted Congress office, staged protests and torched effigy of Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge. 

Congress and BJP leaders engaged in fierce verbal dual. The BJP has linked it to Bajrang Bali and accused the Congress of being anti-Hindutva. Now, in the latest development, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), has sent Rs 100 crore defamation notice to Kharge.

The notice was issued by the Chandigarh unit of the VHP and its youth wing Bajrang Dal on May 4, demanding the compensation within 14 days.

Bajrang Dal believes in religious unity, national integrity 

VHP's lawyer and co-head of its legal cell Sahil Bansal charged in the legal notice that Congress made defamatory statements against the Bajrang Dal, associate body of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, by declaring to ban the organisation and comparing it to outlawed terrorist organisations like the Popular Front of India and like Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) which are banned under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act by the Government of India. 


Bansal claimed the Bajrang Dal "believes in universalism, tolerance, dharmic unity, national integrity and service towards Bharat Mata and in doing so seeks inspiration from the reverential example of Lord Ram and Lord Hanuman who are the ideal embodiment of Dharma and Service".
