As Hindu Raksha Dal claims responsibility for the brutal attack on the teachers and students of JNU, it gets important to know there agenda.

Hindu Raksha Dal (HRD), is a self proclaimed political party that works for the help of Hindus and Hinduism in need.

Headed by President Bhupendra Tomar alias Pinky Bhaiya, this fringe right group is based in Ghaziabad of Uttar Pradesh.

HRD started as an NGO around 5 years back and then claimed itself to be a political party.

Bhupendra has contested for the post of Mayor from Ghaziabad from his own party but social media posts reveal that he works as an ally to the BJP.

HRD and its members have been accused of challenging religious harmony several times, though the workers have been sheltered by the BJP.

Pinky Chaudhary was accused of threatening  SP leader who made complaint after HRD created ruckus in an iftar party in Ghaziabad in 2018.

Now HRD has claimed responsibility for the brutal assault on teachers and students of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) by a masked mob on January 5.

Tomar’s admission comes at a time when a video, which has now gone viral, shows ABVP’s Delhi Joint Secretary Anima Sonkar admitting on national television that two armed men seen in videos carrying rods in the JNU campus are from the RSS-linked student union.

In another video posted on Twitter, the outfit’s leader Bhupendra Tomar alias Pinky Chaudhary said Hindu Raksha Dal workers barged into the JNU campus on Sunday night as "anti-national and anti-Hindu activities" were being carried out there.

“JNU is a hub of communists and we won’t tolerate such hubs. They abuse our religion and our country. Their attitude towards our religion is anti-national....

.... In future, too, we will take the same action in other universities if someone tries to indulge in anti-national activities,” Tomar said in the 1 minute and 59 second video.

Claims made by Tomar are being investigated. “Delhi Police has taken cognizance. To identity masked men in JNU, Police is taking help of video footage as well as face recognition systems,” the sources said.

The reactions from the Union ministers after the whole incident reveal the biased approach by the BJP towards the students.

Hindu Raksha Dal's close connect with the BJP exposes how the fringe group is taking  the political agenda ahead.
