More than 2,600 men, women and children have taken an oath to protect their Hindu religion by accepting trishuls (tridents) from far right organisations like VHP and Bajrang Dal in Haryana and Rajasthan in the month of April alone. Here is a low down on these incidents reported by Twitter account @HindutvaWatch which keeps a track of such communal incidents.

On April 2, in Kekri Rajasthan, 1,100 Bajrang Dal workers were handed out trishuls. This included young women as well. This was done in Arya Samaj premises and the oath was administered by Sunderlal Kataria, a local VHP leader. A rally was also carried out.

On April 3 surfaced a video from Narayangarh, Haryana, of hundreds of men taking an oath to protect Hindu religion by using the Trishul and not misusing the Trishul for personal use. In the crowd gathered, taking the oath, were also minor boys. The trishuls were being distributed by Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) to 300 men.

On April 8 a video came up from Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan where Bajrang Dal distributed trishuls to about 100 men from various age groups. The men can be seen holding trishuls in their hands and taking an oath to protect Hindu religion.

As reported by Twitter user @HindutvaWatch on April 15, VHP and Bajrang Dal distributed trishuls among 1,100 men, women as well as children. A large congregation hall was booked for the same and amidst calls of Jai Shree Ram, an oath to protect cows and to create Akhand Bharat (unanimous India) was administered to all.

On April 17, in Jhalawar, Rajasthan, a rally was organised to distribute trishuls among men. Vishnu Salvi said during his speech that Hindus need to keep weapons at home.

On April 19, a video of VHP leader Surendra Jain gave a speech at Mathiana, Rajasthan, where the organization, along with Bajrang Dal was distributing trishuls. “We need to understand the mentality of Muslims which is due to their jihad, their dream of Dar-ul-Islam and they have been spoiled by India’s secular politicians like Ashok Gehlot (Rajasthan Chief Minister) and Mamata Banerjee (West Bengal Chief Minister). They have told them (Muslims) to destroy Hindus and we will protect you. No matter what happens we will not let their plan succeed… Wherever Islam is spreading, the non-Muslim girls throughout the world are feeling unsafe. Now only Ram-Janmabhoomi issues have been resolved and slowly all issues will get resolved. The whole world will become saffron. A reporter asked me why are you doing Trishul Deeksha? If required to protect women, cows, saints we will take up weapons. Trishul Deeksha is not about taking up weapons. We will not give our other cheek forward if you slap us, today’s Hindu will break your hand even if you think about slapping us.”

On April 27, a video surfaced from Bhadsora, Rajasthan where hundreds of men were given trishuls and took an oath to protect Hindu religion.
