New Delhi: A group of activists of BJP's youth wing BJYM on Thursday put up a banner of 'Baba Vishwanath Marg' on the signboard of Aurangzeb Lane in Lutyens' Delhi, saying Aurangzeb has killed lakhs of Hindus, the road in his name should not be in Hindustan.
Delhi BJYM chief Vasu Rukhad said that the activists of the organisation have changed the name of Aurangzeb Lane to Baba Vishwanath Marg. Rukhad said Aurangzeb killed lakhs of Hindus and destroyed their religious places. It is shameful to name the road after him. He further said that the BJP demands that CM Arvind Kejriwal's government should change the names of all routes and other public places which have the names of Mughal kings as they hurt Hindu sentiments.
A senior police officer said that during patrolling, they saw the banner on the signboard and removed it. We will take legal action in this regard under the Delhi Prevention of Defacement of Property Act, the official said. However, when the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) officials visited the spot, they found no damage or deformity. The police had already taken action. A senior NDMC official said no complaint has been given by the NDMC so far.
