Several Bharatiya Janta Party, Bajrang Dal and pro-Hindutva workers in Bengaluru used saffron paint to cover anti-CAA, anti-Modi and Free Kashmir slogans painted on Church Street, Bengaluru.
The graffiti was first seen on Tuesday morning, January 14. According to reports, CCTV footage from a nearby building shows that at least two people were involved in spray painting the slogans around 3 am on Tuesday.
The graffiti was on the wall of abandoned building in Shrungar Complex, a popular shopping mall in the early 1990s that now awaits demolition. By noon on Tuesday, the graffiti was painted over by a crowd of workers chanting “Bharat mata ki jai.” Those covering up the slogans also scrawled “We support CAA, NCR” on the walls (below).
