Vishvas News (New Delhi): A message going viral on social media claims that the Rajasthan government has taken a decision on Janmashtami to please the Muslims. In this, a picture is being made viral referring to the IPC section. Vishvas News investigated and found the viral post to be fake. Rajasthan government has not taken any such decision or made any such post, as claimed in the viral message.
Facebook user Amit Kumar Sangwan shared a poster on September 1 writing: “राजस्थान सरकार के द्वारा बहुत ही महत्वपूर्ण IPc की धारा में मदरसा मस्जिद के संदर्भ में निर्णय लेकर तमाम आलम ए इस्लाम के लोगों को राहत पहुंचाने का एक शानदार गिफ्ट हिंदुओ को जन्माष्टमी पर दिया है अब अगर जिहादी आपके घर के आगे मजार या मस्जिद बनाते है और आप उनको रोकते है तो 3 साल के लिए आपको सीधे जेल होगी।कोई जमानत नही। आप आगे भी कांग्रेस को वोट देकर अपने घर में ही मजार बनवा सकते हो वो भी फ्री में। इस भाईचारे का सारा श्रेय सेकुलर हिंदुओ को जाता है गहलोत सरकार का सभी सेकुलर हिंदुओ की तरफ से आभार प्रकट करते हैं और सारे सेकुलर हिन्दू गहलोत सरकार से उम्मीद करते है की वो ऐसे ही हिंदुओ की जड़े आगे भी खोदते रहे। और इस सुंदर कार्य के लिए सेकुलर हिंदुओ का वोट आपके लिए पक्का समझे।” (English translation: “A wonderful gift to Hindus by the Government of Rajasthan to bring relief to the people of Alam-e-Islam by taking a decision regarding the Madrasa Masjid in the very important section under IPC. It is decided on Janmashtami, now if jihadis build a tomb or mosque in front of your house and you stop them, then you will be directly jailed for 3 years. No bail. You can even get a mazar built in your own home by voting for Congress, that too for free. All the credit for this brotherhood goes to the secular Hindus, thanks to the Gehlot government on behalf of all secular Hindus and all secular Hindus expect the Gehlot government to continue digging the roots of similar Hindus. And consider the vote of secular Hindus sure for you for this beautiful work).
