An outfit floated by BJP MP Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday offered all possible help “including guns” to the Hindus of Bisada village, as it alleged that they were being hounded following the lynching of Mohammed Ikhlaq.

Several members of the group, ‘Hindu Yuva Vahini’ on Wednesday tried entering the village but were stopped by the police in view of the prohibitory orders.

“We will go and meet Hindus who are being harassed by authorities. We will provide them all possible help, be it tan-man-dhan-gun, if they are harassed,” said Jitendra Tyagi, one of the members of the outfit before police stopped them.

Tyagi, however, termed as “sad” the September 28 killing of Ikhlaq and demanded a CBI probe into it.

He wondered why “only” Muslims were being offered compensation, while Jay Prakash, a youth who was found dead on Tuesday, has not been offered assistance.

“The one who slaughter cows are being compensated. Did they earn this money on their own? Why only Muslims are getting help? Why Jay Prakash has not been given any help?” Tyagi asked.

The Vahini workers also shouted slogans against SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav.
