A right-wing Hindu outfit in India, Hindu Yuva Vahini (HYV), announced a reward of INR 10 million for anyone who beheads former Indian cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu for 'insulting' Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Times of India reported on Thursday.

Threats targeting the Sidhu come after he called Adityanath a wanton thief at a rally in Rajasthan.

President of the HYV's Agra chapter, Tarun Singh, said that he would "chop Sidhu into pieces if he ever visited Agra".

Attacking his role in Pakistan-led peace efforts, Singh also called Sidhu a traitor.

'Either Sidhu should go to Pakistan, or we will not let him live in India,' he said.

He added that heaping praises for the neighbouring country and giving statements against his own is an 'unpardonable' act.

Formed about 15 years ago, the HYV is a cult formed around Yogi Adityanath. Last year they closed further memberships.

Shahana | 2 years ago | Reply BJP has been turning India into a racist Hindu supremacist country and apartheid state like Israel where Muslims are marginilised,abused and discriminated against. Modi and his henchman like Yogi are extremists who are intolerant of honest peacemakers like Sidhu who stand for truth and justice.
Bunny Rabbit | 2 years ago | Reply This Sidhu is carrying on a personal visit. I wonder why it should bother any one .
