Islamic centre signage defaced in Delhi
A vigilante group that prides itself on defacing road signage with Muslim-sounding names and threatening connoisseurs of buffalo meat and Pakistani music, vandalised the signboard of an Islamic centre in the heart of the capital on Sunday.
In a statement, Hindu Sena secretary Bam Bam Thakur alias Sumit said he had pasted a sticker that read “Jihadi Terrorist Islamic Centre” over the signage of India Islamic Cultural Centre to demand the closure of the institution.
Police said an FIR had been filed under the Delhi Prevention of Defacement of Property Act, 2007 but did not specify who had been accused in it.
The centre offers membership to all Indian citizens irrespective of religion and aims to “promote understanding amongst people of different religious groups”.
