BJP leader slaps girl for sipping tea with Muslim friend, netizens react

New Delhi: In a video that has gone viral, a BJP Women’s Wing leader of Aligarh – Sangeeta Varshney – is seen repeatedly slapping a girl reportedly belonging to the Hindu community, as she questions her relationship with a Muslim man.

In the video, the BJP leader can be heard shouting in anger, “Tu zyada badi ho gai, tereko itni samajh nai hai koun Hindu hai koun Musalman hai (you have grown so old, don’t you understand who is Hindu and who is a Muslim)”.

The alleged Hindu-Muslim couple also attracted the ire of UP CM Yogi Adityanath’s Hindu Yuva Vahini, whose members took them to a police station after they saw “them doing wrong things in public”, reported The Times of India.

The girl, on her part, reportedly accepted that she was in a relationship with the man in question, adding that she was an adult.

Regarding the incident, Varshney was quoted by TOI as saying:

“They are not to be trusted. Everyone knows the consequences of such relations.”

 

Netizens on social media strongly reacted and demanded her immediate arrest.
