New Delhi: Editor-in-chief of Sudarshan News Suresh Chavhanke has once again administered a provocative oath to a group of people in Ambala, Haryana.
In the video that was shared on social media, he can be heard saying “Hindustan ko Hindu Rashtra banane ke liye awaskhta padi toh hum balidaan denge, awaskhta padi toh lenge” (To make India a ‘Hindu Rashtra’, we will make sacrifices).
Ruling Bharatiya Janata Party MLA from Harayana Aseem Goyal was also present at the oath-taking ceremony.
“If needed, we will make or take sacrifice for it. But we will declare the country a Hindu Rashtra (nation) at any cost. May our ancestors and deities give us the power to achieve our goal,” he is heard saying in the video.
When contacted on Monday, Goel said he took the oath along with others at the event being a Hindu and not as a BJP MLA. “I am proud to be a Hindu,” he said.
At the event, Goel also took part in a seminar on the Uniform Civil Code.
It is not the first time, earlier too the Editor-in-Chief had administered a provocative oath to a group of people at an event of Hindu Yuva Vahini in Delhi.
The oath which was taken at the Delhi event can be translated to “We take an oath and make a resolution that till our last breath, we shall fight, die for and if need be, kill, to make this country a Hindu Rashtra”.
Inflammatory speech at ‘Hindu Mahapanchayat Sabha’
Last month, the organizers of Hindu Mahapanchayat Sabha and several speakers, including Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati, Priest of Dasna Devi temple, and Suresh Chavhanke, Chief Editor of Sudarshan News gave inflammatory speeches during the event held in north-west Delhi’s Burari ground.
During the event, Chavhanke said he is against giving equal rights. “Indian Muslims should get the same rights that Hindus are getting in Pakistan. Nothing more than that,” he added.
Later, Delhi police registered a case against them.
