At the same time, the Alwar unit of BJP said that these are his personal views. BJP’s Alwar South chief Sanjay Singh Naruka told news agency PTI, “This is not the thinking of the party.” He told PTI that he was sitting with a local leader of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), who It was suggested to start a movement against the murder of Chiranjilal Saini. The BJP leader said, “I only told him that a strategy has to be made for the movement. I also told them that five ‘Meo’ Muslim men who smuggled cows were beaten up by our workers. It is the ‘Meo’ people who do cow smuggling and cow slaughter. Since Hindus have reverence for cows, they target such smugglers.
Ahuja said it is his duty to defend his workers and the court has to decide the matter. At the same time, BJP has distanced itself from Ahuja’s statement, calling it Ahuja’s personal opinion.
It is noteworthy that in recent years, there have been some incidents in Alwar where cow protectors attacked people of a particular community on charges of cow smuggling. In one such incident, 55-year-old Pehlu Khan was lynched to death in Behror on April 1, 2017. Similarly, another person Rakbar (aka Akbar) Khan was stopped and assaulted by some people near Lalwandi village of Ramgarh area of Alwar on 20 July 2018 on suspicion of cow smuggling.
