The Bajrang Dal has urged all ‘Garba’ and ‘Dandiya’ organisers to make Aadhaar cards mandatory at the entry points to identify people of non-Hindu communities visiting the events. The Media Convener of the Bajrang Dal, S Kailash said, “We have asked the event organisers to mandate Aadhaar Cards at the entry points to distinguish non-Hindus entering the venues and also to avoid employing Non-Hindus as bouncers for these events.”
Kailash said that it has been observed for some time now that people belonging to different communities enter the venues and show no regard for the divinity of the event. Instead, they indulge in misbehaviour with women and girls participating in the event and often rough up men who come to their rescue.
Kailash believes one of the main reasons why the youths of non-Hindu communities manage to trespass the Garba events is because of the non-Hindu bouncers at the facilities who allow these miscreants to enter the venues. Another area of concern, according to Kailash, is the lack of monitoring and control on who enters the events.
The media convener of the Bajrang Dal said that to avoid such incidents, members of Bajrang Dal will be present at the Garba and Dandiya venues. “If any case of non-Hindus creating ruckus at the Garba events is reported, immediate action would be taken by Bajrang Dal to stop the miscreants from entering the venues which might lead to the disruption of the whole event,” Kailash said.
