The Hindutva militant group also threatened the store owner that if the sale of the book continues, then next time the store will also be burnt.
“We received a complaint that a certain book depicting Hindu god Lord Krishna in an objectionable manner is being sold at a bookstore. We went to the shop and found that many objectionable pictures and comments depicting Lord Krishna and Radha were published in the book with illustrations by Utsav Bhattacharya,” Jwalit Mehta, president, North Gujarat Bajrang Dal told Indian Express.
“As a mark of protest, we burnt the book outside the store. This is also a warning to bookstore owners in Ahmedabad that if they keep objectionable material that hurt Hindu sentiments, next time we will set fire to their shops,” he added.
While setting the book on fire, the Bajrang Dal workers shouted slogans of ‘Har Har Mahadev’ and ‘Jai Shree Ram’
Meanwhile, the store owner said he has not filed a police complaint, adding that all other copies of the book have been removed.
