To add, the outfit was in the past had tried establishing a Godse temple in the Gwalior city. The organization also holds Godse aarti regularly.

The outfit has officially asked its candidates not to seek votes from Muslims.

In my ward, the Muslim voters are decisive for a win but I won’t be turning up at their doorsteps for votes, Haridas Agrawal, one of the Mahasabha candidates told FPJ. We oppose Muslim Personal Law so how come we seek their votes, added Agrawal. He however said that once elected as corporator, he will be working for everyone without discrimination.

Jaiveer Bhardwaj, the national vice president of Hindu Mahasabha said that the Mahasabha is running a campaign against violence unleashed by non-Hindus and has decided not to seek votes from Muslims.

He however said that they are not against nationalist Muslims and are only oppose to anti-nationals. He also underlined the fact that all the Mahasabha candidates who won in the past worked for everyone without any bias.

We have already announced two candidates , said Bharadwaj.
