Mathura: Tension has increased in Uttar Pradesh’s Mathura regarding the Hindu Mahasabha’s call on Tuesday to recite the Hanuman Chalisa on the premises of a mosque.
Security has been beefed up in the city amid the increasing tension; nearly 1,500 police and paramilitary personnel have been deployed to maintain law and order in Mathura. Along with this, traffic movement has been restricted near Shri Krishna Janmasthan temple and Shahi Masjid Idgah in Mathura, officials said.
Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha national treasurer Dinesh Kaushik said on Monday that they would go to chant Hanuman Chalisa inside the mosque.
The Supreme Court’s order will be followed, and the prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the CrPC have been implemented as a precautionary measure to keep law and order under control. “Nobody will be given the chance to take law and order into his hands and spoil the peace of the pilgrim city,” Shailesh Pandey was quoted as saying by a news agency.
The Hindu Mahasabha did the same last year, but the district administration thwarted their plan.
