Ambala: This Christmas witnessed violence from Assam to Haryana as in both states, Christmas celebrations were disrupted.

A statue of Jesus Christ was vandalized at a church in Haryana's Ambala on Sunday afternoon. While on the other hand, Christmas celebrations were disrupted on Saturday night by a few members of Bajranj Dal.

Meanwhile, commenting on the incident in Haryana, the state's Home Minister Anil Vij said that the culprits will identify soon with the help of CCTV footage.

"We have assigned three teams to catch the criminals. We have gathered CCTV footage and two men appear to have been involved in this. We hope that we will soon arrest those involved based on the video footage," he added.

"Two men jumped the boundary wall at 12:30 pm and vandalized a statue of Jesus Christ at around 1:40 pm. They haven't been identified yet; police teams have been assigned to investigate it. A complaint is being lodged and action will be taken accordingly," media reports quoted a police official as saying.

In Silchar, the members of the Bajrang Dal reportedly forced their way into a church and demanded to be shut down and claimed that Hindus could not take part in Christmas festivities.

According to reports, they said that they had no issue with Christians celebrating Christmas but they will not allow Hindu to do so as December 25 was 'Tulsi Diwas'.

"Let Christians celebrate Christmas and we are not against this festival. We are against Hindu participating in such functions. Today is also Tulsi Diwas of Hindus but no one celebrated it and it hurts our sentiments. How will our religion survive,'' said one of the members of Bajrang Dal in a video circulated online.
