Washim police booked eight persons for dancing with Mughal tyrant Aurangzeb’s posters. The case was registered after a video showing them with the Mughal tyrant’s posters went viral on social media. “Some youths carried Aurangzeb’s photos during Dada Hayat Qalandar’s urs which started on Jan 1 & raised slogans. A case is registered in this regard”, police inspector Sunil Hud informed the media.
The Urs was held at Dada Kalandar Dargah in Washim District’s Mangrulpir from January 1. The procession was held on January 14 in which the participants carried Aurangzeb’s posters. It also came to light that police permission had been given only to two DJs whereas 21 DJs were played in the Urs.
Two photographs captured of the dancers showed them carrying posters of Hinduphobic Islamic ruler Tipu Sultan in addition to that of the Mughal tyrant. Hindu organizations reacted after seeing posters of the Islamic tyrants in the procession. Protests were held by Hindu organizations on Sunday (January 15) in which they burnt the effigies of Aurangzeb and protested against those who had carried his posters. Following the protests, Mangrulpir police registered a case in the matter.
