Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha on Sunday said it will continue to observe the Republic Day eve and Independence Day as "black days" in protest against Partition and has conveyed it to the police which it claimed was inquiring into a complaint against the outfit over the issue.

Pandit Ashok Sharma, national Vice President of the Hindutva body said that an inspector from Thana Brahmpuri came to his office on Saturday and told them that their "actions were seditious".

Sharma said that he told the inspector, who is inquiring into the complaint against the Mahasabha, that the outfit would continue the practice in protest against the Partition.

"The country was divided on the basis on religion on August 15, 1947 and we got a split Hindu Rashtra. It is unfortunate that on January 26, 1950, the provision of Hindu Rashtra was abolished and power seekers adopted India as a secular country.

"The Hindus and the nation were deceived. Since then, the Mahasabha is protesting against the Constitution," Sharma said.

Meanwhile, the Mahasabha claimed that the complaint had come through the Prime Minister's Office but SP Om Prakash said he has no information about it.
