The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) on Thursday said some of its road signages having Muslim names have been blackened allegedly by a right-wing group and that it has filed a complaint with the police about it.
"They have have written abusive remarks and pasted their party's sticker on the signages" an NDMC spokesperson said.
He said NDMC has already filed a complaint with the police and an FIR is being registered in the case. He said the road signages at the Aurangzeb Road and Akbar Road have also been blackened.
As per an Indian Express report, posters of right-wing group, Shiv Sena Hindustan, were pasted on them.
"The posters read, ‘Bharat mein Islamikaran manzoor nahi. Safar mein mushkilen aaye himmat aur badti hai. Koi agar raasta roke toh zaroorat aur bhardti hai. Jai Hind! Jai Bharat! (Islamisation will not be tolerated in India. Our courage only grows when our journey meets difficulties. Our need only grows when our path meets with obstacles)'.
The names of Rajinder Singh (national president), Charan Singh (national general secretary), Dinesh Kumar (national secretary) and Vinay Sonkar (secretary) of Shiv Sena Hindu-stan were also on the poster."
As per reports, 17 members did all this between 11 pm and 1 am on the night of May 13-14.
As per the report, Rajinder Singh said, we don't want Muslim names for the roads of our country.
"We parted ways with the Shiv Sena because it was too limited to Maharashtra and its activities never ventured beyond the state. We have built our base in around 12 states, including Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Delhi. Our Delhi unit has around 1,300 members and we often meet to carry out our nationalist agenda," Vinay Sonkar was quoted as saying in the IE report.
