Bajrang Dal opposes Communal Violence Bill

Mumbai: To protest against the `Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill`, Bajrang Dal will hold an agitation at Azad Maidan in south Mumbai on Sunday.

Terming it as "unconstitutional" the Bajrang Dal has
opposed the Bill, which has been drafted by the National
Advisory Council (NAC), chaired by Congress president Sonia
Gandhi. The Bill would be tabled in the monsoon session of the
Parliament.

"The Bill is against the constitution and is aimed at
satisfying the minority communities," state in-charge of
Bajrang Dal Deepak Gaikwad said.

"According to the Bill, if any inflammatory or defamatory
words are uttered against a person from a minority community,
it would be termed as violence. If a case is registered
against the person, his property can also be seized," he said.

Gaikwad also drew attention to another provision in the
Bill. "Suppose a Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) or Bajrang Dal
activist commits an offence anywhere, then even the top
office-bearers of VHP, like Ashok Singhal and Praveen Togadia
could be made accused in the case and the victim would be
liable to get a compensation between Rs 3 lakh and Rs 15
lakh."
