Aligarh (UP) – Dozens of workers of Yuva Kranti March in Aligarh, UP recited Hanuman Chalisa over loudspeakers in the Gandhi Park area. Yuva Kranti Manch says that they had earlier given a memorandum to the administration to reduce loudspeakers from mosques. However, there was no response, after which we have begun reciting Hanuman Chalisa.

Yuva Kranti Manch General Secretary Shivang Tiwari said that we will work to install loudspeakers at every intersection. We have scheduled the recitations at 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. This is the time of the Azaan. At that exact time, the recitation of Hanuman Chalisa and Aarti will commence.
#HinduMahasabha national secretary Pooja Shakun Pandey alleged that “if Muslims can use loudspeakers for ‘azaan’ then why can’t we play Hanuman Chalisa?” “We will play it five times a day,” she asserted, adding that “if anyone has a problem, they can approach the police” #aligarh pic.twitter.com/nNE0ykXwQC

In Aligarh, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) has also sought permission to recite Hanuman Chalisa by installing a loudspeaker at the intersection. Now ABVP is also giving an ultimatum to the administration. Baldev Chaudhary, a former ABVP leader said that if the administration does not give us permission and does not give any concrete reason for it, then we will install loudspeakers the next Tuesday i.e. 19th without permission and recite Hanuman Chalisa.
