Members of right wing organisation Vishwa Hindu Parishad and its youth wing Bajrang Dal on Monday distributed trishuls to 75 youths in a ceremony held at Gandhinagar in Gujarat, reported TOI. According to the report, the purpose of distributing the trishuls is to equip the youths to protect cows, fight love jihad and act as anti-romeo squads. “In the past two-and-half years, around 4,000 trishuls have been distributed to youngsters in Gandhinagar city and district,” VHP general secretary Mahadev Desai was quoted as saying by TOI.

“The trishuls are not to be showcased at home. We have given clear direction to the youths to carry the trishuls with them. The trishuls are one centimetre smaller than the prohibited weapons. Hence, it can be used to save cows. There have been several cases of cow slaughter in Gujarat and the police have failed to stop the crime. It is time the Hindu youth come forward to fight it. Moreover, we are also working towards controlling the menace of Love Jihad and are setting up Anti-Romeo squads around educational institutions in the city,” he added.

The concept of anti-romeo squads is taken from Uttar Pradesh where the newly-formed BJP government under Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had given direction to the state police to form similar ‘squads’ to tackle the menace of eve-teasing. Meanwhile, the report quoted superintendent of police of Gandhinagar, Virendrasinh Yadav, as saying that action will be taken against those youths who are found carrying the trishul in public.

    Colonial mindset is a perverted mindset, . The colonial mind has a tendency to dominate a weaker one both by muscle power, money , knowledge and culture.The mindset to dominate the minority by muscle power , wealth and culture is truely a colonial mindset, the colonial British had developed that mindset and the culture within Indian communities. Fanatic " Guomata" perception is a perverted perception primarily within poor and illiterates. Imperial product RSS use to expert in spreading it amongst poor and illiterate masses. So is Hindutva perception. It is primarily a political perception to act against minority to retaliate on rumors as designed by MI6.

          The Hindu religious armies- the Hindu Talibans- are brazenly doing irreparable damage to socio-political fabric this great country. The destructive forces of capitalism and Brahmanism are playing havoc in everywhere. The Modi govt must awaken to gravity of national and social destruction they have been doing. This country does not just belong to these fanatics only. Public is observing these misdeeds. Or the constructive forces will emerge on huge scale and sweep these devilish forces. The day will soon come.

            When Akshardham temples was attacked by terrorists in Gujarat - why did Bajrang Dal not take out their Trishuls ? When Mumbai was attacked what then ?? It is easy to take trishul when there is no threat to you - but when the time comes why do you fall silent ? If there is an attack on Akshardham again - will you wait for NSG or Go in and deal with it yourselves ??

              First they have to DO some calculations .......... if they want to ATTACK 50 Muslims, they should at least create a MOB of 500 with prior information to POLICE in case they get beaten up ....... that is HINDU bravery ..................
