Before Christmas An Effigy Of Santa Claus Burnt In Agra

Agra: A group of Bajrang Dal a day before Christmas, burnt an effigy of Santa Claus in Uttar Pradesh’s Agra. When people across the country are celebrating Christmas and enjoying their holidays, this group is protesting. The video of burning the effigy and shouting ‘go back Santa Claus is doing rounds on social media. 

Bajrang Dal, a Hindu right-wing group, first shouted the slogan of ‘go back Santa Claus’ and then started beating the effigy of Santa Claus with their shoes and feet and later they burnt it in public to protest against alleged conversions.

As per reports, these people showed their anger against the Western civilization, which is attracting the younger generation of people. They said that they will not let happen the alleged religious conversion in India. 

On December 24, a group of people from the Bajrang Dal gathered at Saint John’s chowk in Agra and started sloganeering against the holy festival. One of the Bajrang Dal members said that Santa does not give gifts to but he converts people into his religion. After this incident, the Christian society has condemned this act of the Hindu right-wing group.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Hindu right-wing organization submitted a memorandum to the District Magistrate of Agra and blamed the Christian community for converting Hindu children into their missionary schools. The Bajrang Dal members said that Christian missionaries are heavily engaged in converting Hindu children into their religion.
