Right-wing activists are spraying cow urine on people coming to attend garba dances in Gandhinagar, the capital of Gujarat, in order to keep Muslims out of the festivities, The Times of India reported today.

But it is the Hindus who are bearing the brunt of this disgusting idea. Decked up in all their finery and eager for a night of revelry, they arrive at the graba dances only to get sprayed with urine.

Devduttsinh Raol, an IT professional based in Gandhinagar, was shocked to find young men wearing saffron scarves sprinkling cow urine on the visitors at the main gate of one such garba dance venue, and even dotting their heads with vermillion.

Noting that he did not need a certificate of being a Hindu from anyone, Raol, has lodged a complaint with the police to put an end to this disgusting practice, but the authorities appear reluctant to take action against the saffron outfits, TOI reported.
