Meet the Hindutva group at the centre of Delhi police probe into hooliganism outside mosques

Videos of Akhand Bharat Morcha’s rally in East Delhi on April 1 show its supporters brandishing weapons outside mosques and shouting ‘threatening slogans’.

The Delhi police on Monday began investigating a motorbike rally organised by a Hindutva group called Akhand Bharat Morcha on April 1, ostensibly to mark Hanuman Jayanti. Several hundred of the group’s supporters had stopped by four mosques in East Delhi and, with the police watching, brandished swords and clubs, burst firecrackers, threw colour and raised saffron flags on the mosques, and shouted allegedly “threatening slogans” against the Muslim community.
