JAIPUR – Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal have distributed trishuls (tridents) to around 1,100 Hindu youth which was followed by a call for Hindu Rashtra at Vidyadhar in Rajasthan’s Jaipur on Monday.
This is not the first time such events are taking place. On January 23, a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) pracharak Ishwar Lal distributed trishuls in Lohwat district of Rajasthan.
“Bharat ke Andar tees hazar mandir hai jin ko todh kar unke upar kya bana die Masjide. Kitni Sankhya hai? 30,000. Bolo wapis mandir banana hai ki nahi banana hai? Ram jika toh bana diya, lekin abhi 30,000 baaki hai unko mandir banana hai. Wapis apna sthan hum ko lena hai. Aur uska naam hai Bajrang Dal. (Thirty thousand temples in India were destroyed and mosques were built on them. What is the number? 30,000. Do you want to convert them back to temples or not? We made the Ram temple, but still, 30,000 temples remain. We have to convert them into temples. We have to take back our lands)” he had said in a speech.
In December 2022, a similar event was organised where trishuls were distributed and hate speech against Muslims was made. Around 500-700 people attended the event. Similar trishul distribution events were reportedly held at Balesar, Rampura, Osiyan, Dechu around Rajasthan.
