Wo ek marenge hum unke hazaar marenge aur ab ye Babur ki auladein apni aukaat me rehkar desh me rahe” (there will be an eye for an eye. If they kill one of us, we will kill thousands. These children of Babur need to be shown their place in this country”)

On January 16, even Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), the parent organization of Bajrang Dal, issued a statement that it will hold a two-day protest all over the country. “In the last 2 years, 9 Karyakartas of Bajrang Dal have been killed and 32 attacked by Jihadis. We only protested respecting constitutional values. But it should not be considered our weakness. If the youths stand in reaction, then the responsibility will be entirely on those fundamentalists who provoke the Muslim community meaninglessly,” said VHP Joint General Secretary Surendra Jain in a self-recorded video.
VHP has claimed that the murder was committed by “jihadis”.
