Hyderabad: Govt removing saffron flags from Hindu homes, say VHP

VHP alleged that municipal and police officials have been asking people to remove saffron flags put up outside their houses.

Hyderabad: Alleging that the state government has been removing saffron flags from the residential areas in Hyderabad and across Telangana, right-wing Hindu organisation Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) said that the ruling Congress is “implementing the agenda of Razakars” in the state.

In a statement to the media on Monday, VHP state leaders alleged that the police and municipal officials were removing saffron flags that were placed outside houses at the time of Ram Lalla’s “Praan Pratishthaan”( installation) at Ayodhya.

When questioned by the people, officials said that it was being done as per the orders of the Election Commission of India, VHP claimed.

“Can’t the state government see green flags atop the houses of Muslims,” VHP questioned, urging the Chief Electoral Officer of Telangana to take steps to “respect and save the rights of Hindus”. However, it may be noted that though the VHP is claiming this, saffron flags are also often displays of religious aggression.

After the consecration of the Ram temple in Ayodhya, several homes and establishments put up saffron flags outside in support.
