Watch: “Bahut Galat, Why Do You Need To Go Near Mosque?” Asks Lalu Prasad Yadav On Loudspeaker Row

Patna: On Wednesday, RJD president and former chief minister of Bihar Lalu Prasad Yadav said that loudspeaker issue is enraging in some states. This is very wrong. “Bahut Galat. All this is wrong and is aimed at fragmenting the country. Why do you need to go near a mosque? If you want to read Hanuman Chalisa, go to Ram Mandir. This is to irritate people so that they get provoked and there is a riot, unrest,” Lalu Prasad Yadav said.

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena workers on Wednesday played Hanuman Chalisa in front of mosques that were ‘illegally’ using loudspeakers for azaan. This comes after MNS Chief Raj Thackeray had announced their protest. Maharashtra government claimed there are no illegal loudspeakers, Raj Thackeray said his protest against illegal loudspeakers will go on.

Raj Thackeray, who insists that his demonstration is not about mosques using loudspeakers unlawfully, says temples that break the law with their loudspeaker use should be held accountable as well.

Earlier, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had said that Bihar government will not take down loudspeakers from religious places and will not interfere with any religious practice.

“Yeh fizul ki baat hai. Bihar me humlog kisi bhi dharm ke maamle mein hastakshep nahi karte hain. Sabhi ko apna dharm maanne ka pura adhikar hai (this is nonsense. In Bihar, we do not interfere in matters of anyone’s religion. One is free to profess and follow one’s religion),” Nitish Kumar said.
