New Delhi: A never-heard-before outfit called Hindu Raksha Dal, a far-right group had claimed responsibility for the brutal assault on teachers and students of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) by a masked mob on January 5.
In a video posted on Twitter, the outfits’s self-styled leader Bhupendra Tomar alias Pinky Chaudhury said Hindu Raksha Dal workers barged into the JNU campus on Sunday night at “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 seconds video.
Tomar, popularly known as Pinki Bhaiya, said he and his Right-wing outfit take full responsibility for the attack. “They live in our country, they eat here, get their education here and then indulge in anti-national activities…” meaning student community of JNU, the prime learning centre of the country.
