Ballari, Aug 25: BJP national general secretary (organisation) B L Santhosh has stirred controversy by apparently provoking Hindutva activists to target those who hurt “Hindu sentiments”.
Santhosh, who hails from Udupi district, was addressing a gathering during a Hanuman Mala event at Moka village on the outskirts of Ballari, a region which hardly witnessed any major communal violence so far.
"A section of society is out to provoke Hindu sentiments by indulging in or supporting cow slaughter and forced conversions. We know the ways to deal with such people. We can set afire like Hanuman did in Lanka, if they do not mend their ways," said Santhosh.
He also reiterated that BJP will soon fulfil its promise of constructing Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.
