Brinda Karat, CPM, Lt-Governor Najeeb Jung, Lt-Governor, Najeeb Jung, Muslim group , delhi news, city news, local news, Indian Express Karat, claimed that police were putting pressure on residents to enter into an agreement to allow a shakha on the day of Eid.

Led by CPM politburo member Brinda Karat, Muslims from Northeast Delhi’s Shriram Colony met Lt-Governor Najeeb Jung on Wednesday, urging him to prevent communal tension “because of RSS actions” in their area.

Karat, who spoke to the Lt-Governor, claimed that police were putting pressure on residents to enter into an agreement to allow a shakha on the day of Eid.

Earlier, the same delegation met Police Commissioner B S Bassi on July 3 for police intervention, but there were no developments, Karat said.

“We informed the Lt-Governor about the police pressure on local residents for a so-called compromise — that the shakha should be conducted up to 7 am and the Eid namaz could be held thereafter. The people of the area are sceptical about this, given their experience last year about a written agreement that has not been implemented till date,” Karat said.

She said RSS shakha meetings in this area should be stopped “particularly during the Eid festivities on July 17-19”.

Shriram Colony residents alleged that the RSS organises morning shakhas at Rajiv Park and do not allow them — it is a Muslim-dominated colony — to enter the park between 6 am and 7.30 am.

Residents said the shakha members are not from their locality and have “purposely chosen” a Muslim-dominated area.

      Ms. Karat, why shakha should be stopped? every citizen has a right to exercise his freedom. Do you go to LG to stop Namaz on Deepawali or Dussehra? This is the height of absurdity. She should not impinge on the freedom of people to placate Muslims. They should celebrate Eid and shakha should be organized. Police should keep an eye that no miscreant is causing any trouble. In fact Muslims celebrating eid should offer some sweets to Shakha people to increase Bhai Chara.

        Shakha should not only be stopped but it should be banned country wide since it is part of the terrorist organization RSS. It does nothing to promote communal harmony but does everything to spread racial tensions among Hindus and all Non Hindus of India. For the sake of the country, government should immediately declare RSS for what it is, a Terror spreading, hateful Hindu Organization that has not place in India and therefore ban it.
