‘Aurangzeb’s Illegitimate Children’: Hindutva Vigilantes Destroy Shrine in Himachal Pradesh
SRINAGAR — Vigilantes of the Hindutva outfit, Hindu Jagran Manch, have destroyed a shrine in Himachal Pradesh, videos of which were widely shared on social media platforms by the members of the outfit.
This is the second incident that has taken place in a span of 15 days, where “goons of the outfit” have destroyed shrines, alleging “land jihad”.
The video was originally shared by Kamal Gautam, an “activist” of the outfit, on his Facebook page, where he promotes and propagates acts against Muslims of the country.
“Will free every corner of the Devbhoomi. Will eradicate the land Jihad from Devbhoomi. Listen Aurangzeb’s illegitimate children wherever you go in Devbhoomi you will find Shivaji standing against you,” threatened Gautam in the caption alongside the video.
Earlier, another member of the HJM, Harish Ramkali, alongside other activists had vandalized a shrine in HP, videos of which were widely shared on social media platforms, of similar Hindutva outfits.

He had shared the video on the social networking platform, Facebook, alongside the caption, “The land Jihad will not be tolerated in Devbhoomi. Every illegal Pir Mazar will have the same result. The Hindu heroes of Himachal will continue their campaign against Islamic Jihad,” in Hindi. (Agencies)
