Police harass patriots instead of anti-nationals !
Police did video-recording of many things in the ‘sabha’. They did shooting of Reception Cell, all display boards exhibited at the venue and were in general behaving as if; it was crime to hold Dharmajagruti Sabha. (Will police show guts to video-shoot any programs held by Muslims or held at madarasas ? – Editor, Dainik Sanatan Prabhat)
Police staff from Intelligence Bureau was also present.
20 devout Hindus had come from Tanang village in Miraj District. Many devout youth came for the ‘sabha’ from Yelawi, Manerajuri, Shirgaon, Nagaon etc. from Tasgaon taluka.
