Mumbai BJP President and MLA Mangal Prabhat Lodha raises the issue of Hindu exodus in Malvani

While speaking in the Vidhan Sabha on Thursday Mumbai BJP President Mangal Prabhat Lodha raised the issue of Hindu exodus taking place in Mumbai’s Malad-Malvani region. He said that “There is a pattern to this Hindu exodus. They are being threatened and intimidated to leave their houses. A concerted attempt is being made to evict them. Just like Kashmir, Kairana witnessed the exodus of Hindus, Malvani in Mumbai is also witnessing the same.”

Lodha further added, “If you look at the Vidhan Sabha voters list in Malad-Malvani region, the number of Hindu voters have reduced by about 15,000 while the Muslim voters have risen by 12,000.” He also spoke about the posters of Prabhu Sri Ram being torn by police officials in Malvani. He said not only police personnel tore the posters to bits but they also filed an FIR against those who reported the incident.

He said that Hindus in Malvani are being persecuted through a planned conspiracy which entails removing them so that Rohingya Muslims, Bangladeshis, and others could be settled. Giving the example of Chheda Nagar of Malvani, Lodha said more than half of 108 Hindu families who used to stay earlier had left the neighborhood.

He categorically stated that the reason behind the Hindu exodus from the area was due to the construction of a mosque there that uses loudspeakers for namaz (Islamic prayer). He also brought to light the plight of Dalit Hindu families who refused to bow down to Islamists and continued staying in the area despite the numerous difficulties they face such as women being locked up in the common toilets during namaz.

He urged chief minister Uddhav Thackeray to take cognizance of the matter and asked him to constitute a separate committee to look into the persecution of Hindu residents in the region.
