New Delhi: Hindutva member Yati Narsinghanand Giri has urged Hindus to have a saffron-coloured flag on their house and boycott the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign.
According to Scroll, Narsinghanand – who is accused in two hate speech cases – asked Hindus to boycott the “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign and not purchase flags as he claimed that the biggest order of procuring flags for this campaign has been given to a Muslim.
“The biggest order [of procuring flags] for this campaign has been given to a company in West Bengal owned by one Salauddin,” he claimed in a video that went viral on Friday, August 12.
“This is one big conspiracy against Hindus. If you [Hindus] want to stay alive, then stop giving your money to Muslims in the name of this campaign.” He added, “If you want to hoist a tricolour, find an old one. But don’t give money to Salauddin.”
He further said that Hindu politicians campaign for the economic boycott of Muslims, however, they give government contracts to them once in power.
“Teach a lesson to these politicians…They cannot use your [Hindus] money to make Muslims rich and subsequently make arrangements for them to kill your children. Don’t fall into the trap of these people,” he says in the video, according to an English translation provided by Scroll.
In January, Narsinghanand was arrested in two separate cases: one on derogatory comments against women and the other on hate speeches against Muslims at Haridwar’s Dharma Sansad. He is on bail in both cases.
However, the Hindu seer has made several inflammatory comments against Muslims for which no action has been taken until now.
In April, he had asked Hindus to give birth to more children to prevent India from becoming an Islamic country. The Himachal Pradesh had warned him to not use such instigating language.
He was summoned by the Ghaziabad Police in June for making derogatory remarks against Prophet Muhammad- PBUH.
