A mahapanchayat was organised on 4 July in Haryana’s Pataudi village. The event was addressed by Gopal and BJP spokesperson Surajpal Singh Ammu as well.
Gopal glorified his act of shooting at the event and passed comments against Muslims. He also encouraged the genocide of Muslims through his speech. ”When mulle [derogatory term used for Muslims] will be murdered they will scream Ram, Ram,” he said in his speech.
Ammu also made remarks against Muslims and supported violence against the community.
