#Delhi After recent anti-Muslim incidents by fringe groups,@the_hindu profiles 3 such groups to understand how they're growing.
Hindu Sena chief Vishnu Gupta gives a Bhagwat Gita&a sword to everyone who joins the org, he says. "Only take people who are trained by RSS".
- All these organizations are growing using social media. The crowd that gathers in their events is common for all groups. Personally, they don't seem to appreciate each other but pose as one when it comes to standing against one community.
After his release from jail on Oct 1 (Jantar Mantar raising of anti-Muslim slogans case), Deepak Singh from Hindu Force said that staying in jail was his 'tapasya' and he has come back stronger.
