Patna: A day after an anti-India group calling itself Popular Front of Bihar (PFB) took out a rally in Patna chanting pro-Pakistan slogans while showing support for known anti-national elements like Asaduddin Owaisi and Zakir Naik, members of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its student wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) in Patna on Saturday took out a protest rally demanding immediate arrests of the those who participated in yesterday's rally and charges filed against them under sedition laws.

Angry BJP workers burnt the flag of Pakistan and accused PFB, Owaisi, and Naik of being sympathizers of dead terrorist Osama bin Laden and ISIS that has unleashed a reign of terror in the Middle East and Europe.

Blaming Nitish Kumar of encouraging anti-national activities by expressing support for known terrorists like Ishrat Jehan and rabble rouser Kanhaiya Kumar of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), the protestors said that they would not tolerate such blatant anti-national sentiments being fanned by Pakistani agents who, with help from Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) President Lalu Prasad Yadav, have turned Bihar into a terrorist haven.

"Whenever there is a terror attack in India, the root of the perpetrator is traced back to Bihar. This is solely because of the encouragement to such anti-national elements by people like Lalu Prasad Yadav and Nitish Kumar who care about their vote banks than the security of the nation," the ABVP protestors said.

Former Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Sushil Kumar Modi also slammed Nitish Kumar for ignoring the issue of terrorism in Bihar.

"Never in the history of Patna have Pakistani agents taken out anti-India rally in full view of the law enforcement officials. This is a serious matter and the Chief Minister must not take it lightly," the BJP leader said.

Accusing Kumar of having a history of being a sympathizer of terrorists, Modi said that earlier the Chief Minister had called terrorist Ishrat Jehan 'a Bihar ki Beti' and had refused to order questioning of Indian Mujahideen founder Yasin Bhatkal during his arrest from Bihar in 2012.

Meanwhile, the Patna police arrested one Mohammed Taufiq who was one of the many who was seen chanting pro-Pakistan slogans in Patna on Friday.

Speaking to the media, Patna Superintendent of Police (SSP) Manu Maharaj contradicted earlier reporting that the Friday rally by the PFI was sanctioned by the district administration.

"This outfit did not have the proper permission to take out the rally. We have registered an FIR in the case and are investigating it from various angles," Maharaj said adding video footage of the rally has been sent to a forensic lab in New Delhi and proper actions would be taken once the results are received by the Patna police.
