Mandi (Himachal Pradesh) – On the first day of the International Shivaratra Festival held here on 19th February, Sufi artists named ‘Sabri Brothers’ sang ‘Allah Hu’ on the stage. At that time a singer named Rakhi Gautam from Bilaspur also sang some obscene songs from Hindi films. Chief Minister Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu was also present on this occasion. The Congress-ruled Himachal Pradesh Government, which organised this festival, has been criticised by the BJP for this incident, and Hindus are also condemning it on social media.

The BJP office of Himachal Pradesh tweeted against this incident and said that after winning the elections, the Congress leaders had said that they have defeated Hindutva. Is this act a testimony of it ? What does the Congress want to prove by presenting the ‘Allah Hu’ qawwali in the ‘Shivaratra festival’ of the State which is called ‘Chhoti Kashi’, where 97% of the population is Hindu ? BJP has made it clear that we are not against any religion, but it is inappropriate to do such a thing from the platform of a Hindu festival. The BJP has also demanded that the Congress, which has hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus, should apologise to the Hindus.
This is an old trick of Congress to hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus. As the Congress won the recently held assembly elections in Himachal Pradesh, it will not be surprising if the Congress Government continues to attack Hindu Dharma there !
