In a very dramatic turn of events, the Hindu Raksha Dal has come out and claimed responsibility for the violence in JNU and blamed the JNU university for being a harbor of anti-national activities.
Hindu Raksha Dal claims responsibility
In recent developments, Hindu Raksha Dal has published a video of its leader Pinky Chaudhary also know as Tomar, who has claimed credit for the JNU rampage that has left at least 30 people, including students and teachers wounded.
“JNU is a hotbed of anti-national activities and we cannot tolerate this. We take full responsibility for the attack in JNU and would like to say that they were our workers.”
“The way these people have been functioning over the years, especially the people in JNU, it is against our religion. We can never permit such anti-national activities,” he said.
Done on a purpose
He also said that he and his Right-wing outfit take full accountability for the attack. “They live in our country, they eat here, get their education here and then indulge in anti-national activities… those involved in that JNU act were all our workers. We are always ready to sacrifice our lives for the country,” he said.
