VHP activist in burqa held for molesting women

Allahabad, Oct 09, 2016, PTI : A VHP activist, along with his business associate, was thrashed and handed over to the police for allegedly donning a burqa and sneaking into a gathering of women at a place of worship, a charge denied by the brother of the accused who claimed that it was a fabricated case.

The incident took place at Umarpur village in Mauaima police station area of the district’s trans-Ganga region, about 40 kms from the city, yesterday.

Abhishek Yadav and his business partner Atif had visited an Imambara where a function in the run up to Moharram was being held, police station in-charge Satinder Singh said.

He said Yadav, whose wife is a member of the Zila Panchayat, had reached the venue allegedly wearing a burqa which enabled him to sit close to the women.

An outcry ensued when some people caught a glimpse of his jeans and sports shoes underneath the burqa, following which the men present at the Imambara ripped off his burqa and beat him up besides thrashing Atif who had tried to intervene.

According to Singh, Yadav, who was an active member of the VHP, has been booked in the past for rioting and creating communal disturbances. A case was registered against him yesterday and IPC sections for similar offences yesterday.

Meanwhile, a cross-complaint has been lodged by Yadav’s brother Veersen who has alleged that “Abhishek and Atif were waylaid close to the Imambara by a group of marauders who brutally assaulted the duo and snatched away their valuables before dragging them to the police station and fabricating a story”.

“Those who attacked Abhishek nursed a grouse against him because of his association with the VHP and a thriving business of ready made garments and sports goods,” he said.

“They made him wear a burqa after beating him up, clicked his photographs and posted the same on social media to create the false impression that he was trying to create communal disturbances at a place of worship,” Yadav’s brother alleged.

Police is investigating allegations made by both sides. Yadav and Atif have been admitted to a hospital for treatment, and adequate deployment of forces have been made in the village as a precautionary measure, the police station in charge said.


  1. Hilarious!!! Why are we even allowing a dress that hides the identity of an individual? I understand that our stenographers are hiding under the desk. You can’t expect them to ask this logical question. Can we expect BJP govt to take a bold step and ban this dress in public places? I doubt.

  2. Banks have been robbed, woman have been molested, and who knows what all has taken place when people cover their faces in public and commit anti social and criminal acts.

    Perhaps the government needs to look into this this kind of dress code, and totally ban the uses of face masks and all face coverings in public out of security concerns, law and order problems.

    If, and a big IF based on the reports he should dealt with if the reports are true.

  3. RSS dropped shorts and adopted western attire of pants.

    Now the gentleman is asking for bikini culture in India. I know Arnab Goswami’s tonight it is not told that his Sangh Parivar is against Nudism.

    PM Modi advices ‘Selfie with daughter’. Bhaktha saying ‘disrobe the minority women’.

    Jai Hind
