Saturday October 19, 2013 7:13 PM, Staff Reporter

Activists and NGOs Saturday expressed concerns over the inflammatory posters that are seen in trains leaving for Gujarat and have demanded from the government to remove these posters immediately and take appropriate legal actions against those involved in pasting them.

"These posters are very inflammatory and divisive. All the citizens of the country have to follow the laws of the land. Asaram's son Narayan Sai is absconding from last several days. Nobody can be above law. The police authorities must get the posters removed and take immediate action against those who have put up these posters", President of All India Secular Forum (AISF) and a member of National Integration Council (NIC) Ram Puniyani said.

Aleem Faizee of Citizens for Development & Peace (CDP) also expressed similar concerns and demanded their immediate removal.

"We are still to come out of the shock of the Muzaffarnagar riots. This is no more a secret that the communal forces are trying to create communal flare-ups in the run up to the assembly elections in the five states and the 2014 general elections to polarize votes in the favour of a particular party. The government needs to be extra alert. It is its responsibility to check how these posters found place in trains and take stern action against the culprits", he said.

Posters with Hindu saints, who have faced and are facing actions for different crimes, appeared in different compartments of trains leaving for Gujarat.

The saints shown in the poster are Shankaracharya (allegedly involved in Shankar Raman murder case), Swami Nityanand (allegedly involved in Sex scandals), Baba Ramdev (allegedly involved in mixing bone powder in medicines), Asaram Bapu (allegedly involved in rape and molestation) and Kripaluji Maharaj (allegedly involved in molestation).

The text in the posters says that Hindu society is under siege and the guides of Hindu society are being harassed.

Subramaniam Swami of BJP is also quoted in the posters as saying that as per the verdict of his legal team Asaram Bapu is innocent.

The poster says that there is a conspiracy against Hindu society; its saints are being hounded. This is an attack on Hindu culture.
