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.
