Indian police probe Hindu event calling for mass killing of Muslims

Indian police said on Friday they have launched an investigation into an event where Hindu hardliners called for mass killings of minority Muslims.

A speaker at the gathering earlier this month told the crowd that people should not worry about going to jail for killing Muslims, according to a video verified as genuine by AFP.

“Even if just a hundred of us become soldiers and kill two million of them, we will be victorious … If you stand with this attitude only then will you be able to protect sanatana dharma (an absolute form of Hinduism),” the woman said.

The meeting in the city of Haridwar was attended by at least one member of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party. Prominent Muslim MP Asaduddin Owaisi tweeted that the comments in the video were a “clear case of incitement to genocide”.
