The Rajasthan assembly saw chaos on Thursday as BJP MLA Madan Dilawar raised the issue of the attack on an RSS shakha during the zero hours. Dilawar stated that the BJP will not tolerate such attacks on RSS cadre and demanded action from the government. The BJP MLAs raising the issue saw Congress MLAs vocally opposing.
As per reports, leader of opposition Gulab Chand Kataria had supported Dilawar’s stand and had demanded swift action from the government over the issue. Upon this, Congress minister Shanti Dhariwal objected to Kataria speaking on an issue raised by another MLA. Following Dhariwal’s statement, BJP MLAs started protesting.
The ruckus among the MLAs of Congress and BJP reached to such levels that speaker CP Joshi had to intervene. Dhariwal informed in the assembly that two of the accused who had attacked the RSS cadres in Boondi have been already arrested.
As per reports, in Rajasthan’s Boondi, an RSS shakha was on progress in the Balchand para’s Navalsagar Park when an altercation ensued over the usage of the park between the RSS cadre and local Muslims. MLA Dilawar’s statement claimed that several minors who were a part of the RSS shakha were injured when a Muslim mob attacked them. The children were allegedly beaten up by a mob of over 50 people.
The Navalsagar Park in Boondi has reportedly been a regular location for RSS shakha in the area for over 50 years. On Wednesday, while a shakha was in progress, several people, reportedly Muslims had reached there and objected to the shakha being held. The RSS cadre also included several teenage boys. As the altercations turned violent several of those boys were allegedly beaten up by the mob.
Following the incident, local RSS volunteers and citizens had reached the police station demanding action against the accused. After the issue resulted in a ruckus in Rajasthan assembly, three suspects have reportedly been arrested so far by the police.
A report in Times Now shared a video where it can be seen that children holding the RSS flag are being chased and beaten by a group of Muslim men and women. The report quoted the parents of the victim children who stated that their children trying to hold an RSS shakha in the said park were mercilessly chased and beaten by a Muslim mob which included many women.
