So it’s no secret that fringe right-wing groups have been preparing for some time now to defend Indian society from terrorists, specifically Islamic terrorists, who will invade the country. These groups believe that the combined effort of the Army, Police and Paramilitary Forces of the nation won’t be enough (despite their proven track record), and it will come down to them to ensure that Hindu society is defended.
And now we have proof of how they are being trained, thanks to videos of Bajrang Dal boys being trained to kill infidels. So you have training like:
Shooting through fire:
Shouting Jai Shri Ram before setting out to battle:
Checking whether a terrorist is dead by feeling him up (what do you mean they may have suicide vests?)
Giving a comrade an elaborate send-off if he dies in the ‘battlefield’
And literally getting ‘commandos’ to jump through hoops (OF FIRE!)
Oh, and the ‘terrorists’ mysteriously use sticks and crumble before the might of the ‘commandos’:
Basically, you have a private army of deluded youth being taught how to kill, maim and otherwise do terrible things to people they decide are terrorists, irrespective of what the law may say.
What’s even more disturbing is that such camps are being held in broad daylight. What was this officially categorised as? Bigotry with self-defence classes? Perhaps the next time you want to throw a party or a peaceful protest march, maybe that’s what you need to categorise your event as in order to get permission.
Oh, and just in case you’re wondering, no one’s been arrested, booked or facing any legal action for such a blatant attempt at promoting religious hatred.
