Ahmedabad: India cannot tackle terrorism through mere talks with Pakistan, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) international President Pravin Togadia said. He was addressing a meeting of VHP state workers in Gandhinagar on Monday. He asserted that if extremists managed to enter the highly fortified air base in Pathankot, creating havoc among common people was like a walk in the park for them.

“It is a well-known fact that terrorists come from Pakistan and we must find an appropriate solution to this problem. We can achieve nothing by holding talks. If we want to stop terrorism in the country, we must address the root cause of the problem”, he said.

Togadia’s statement comes after a section in the Narendra Modi government favoured the continuation of talks with Pakistan despite the Pathankot attack.

“The lords of terrorists like Dawood (Ibrahim), (Zakiur Rehman) Lakhvi and Hafiz Saeed keep sending hordes of terrorists to India. If the government is serious about curbing terror, all these men must be brought to Delhi and hanged in public.”

Togadia said he had full faith that the Modi government was capable of achieving the objective.

“We trust Narendra bhai. Whether he drinks tea with Sharif or presents sari is not our concern. First, we must make our point clear then he can do whatever he wants,” Togadia said in a reference to Modi’s personal rapport with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif.

Togadia also referred to the ongoing Patel reservation agitation in Gujarat, saying that if a solution was not found, it could herald a “caste revolution” in the state.

Deepika Requests Smriti Irani To Take Action Following Padmavati Rangoli Vandalism

New Delhi, October 20: Deepika Padukone has requested the Information and Broadcasting minister Smriti Irani to take action against culprits who destroyed a rangoli featuring her as Rani Padmini of her upcoming film Padmavati.

One member of Vishwa Hindu Parishad and four members of Rajput Karni Sena were arrested for vandalizing the rangoli prepared by a local artist at the Rahul Raj Mall on past Sunday. The artist took 48 hours to make the rangoli and posted a picture of it on Twitter. Police arrested the perpetrators on the basis of a video footage displaying men shouting ‘Jai Shree Ram’ as they destroyed the rangoli.

Surat Police Commissioner Satish Sharma requested mall owners to come forward and file a case against those who do such wrongdoings. “We have arrested five persons, four of them belonging to outfit Karni Sena and one from the VHP. More persons are likely to be arrested as the video footage recovered by us shows 8-10 persons involved in the activity,” Sharma said.

“I also want to make it clear that the police will deal with strictness against any such action. Freedom of expression is everyone’s right in a democracy, but vandalism will not be allowed,” he said.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati has been facing a lot of hostility since its inception. Bhansali was attacked last year by members of Karni Sena who claim that history is being distorted in Bhansali’s film. The same group burnt posters last month featuring Deepika, Shahid, and Ranveer. They have also warned to thwart the screening of the film if facts were twisted. The movie is scheduled to release on December 1, 2017.
