Complaint filed against RSS head for hurting Hindus' religious feelingstext_fields
New Delhi: Mohan Bhagwat, the head of the RSS, and two publications have been accused of hurting the religious sentiments of the majority community in a complaint to the Delhi Police. An official stated on Saturday that the police had not yet filed an FIR in the case.
Editor-in-Chief of India Speaks Daily and owner of a YouTube channel, Sandeep Deo, said in his complaint that Bhagwat's recent interview with two publications supported homosexuality by making references to personalities from the Mahabharata.
"RSS chief in his reply to a question quoted scriptural, the historical personality of Mahabharata times - Hamsa and Dimbak being as gay having a relationship as gay's with each other, having attraction towards each other, which is not factually correct," Deo said in his complaint.
Deo further stated that the same historical incidence is correctly mentioned in Sri Harivansh Purana from pages no 1303 to 1366 printed from Gita Press. He demanded registration of an FIR under section 295 A (Deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage the religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs) of the IPC.
"Bhagwat's remarks have hurt the feelings of a large section of the Hindu community. They should be made to issue a written apology for printing misinterpretation of scripture like Mahabharat Harvanshpuran," the complaint read.
