“Bajrang Dal has announced to take out a procession on Hanuman Jayanti in Muslim dominated areas, which are highly sensitive with narrow lanes.

During this ongoing Ramzan festival, people of Muslim community in these areas are worried,” the delegation stated in a letter handed over to the state home minister.
