Reacting to the incident, Hindu Sena national president Vishnu Gupta, said, “Whatever these activists have done is by reacting to their personal feelings. The whole country got to know how Poonawala cut a Hindu girl into pieces.” “The organisation does not support any such work which is against the Constitution of India. We believe in the law,” he said.
