Open calls for use of weapons against Muslims: FIR for hate speech

Haridwar: The religious conclave in Haridwar was an outright war declaration against Muslims in India by the Right Wing leaders who can be seen fomenting venoms, urging Hindus in the country to take weapons against Muslims, in a video which is being widely circulated on social media.

It has been four days since the conclave but the police filed no FIR for hate speech despite several calls from civil society to take action against the people who made provocative speeches until yesterday.

The widespread condemnation and outrage against the hate speech forced Haridwar police to register an FIR which named one person, who is reported to be a newly converted Hindu.

The video clips of the conclave, held between 17 and 20 last week, have doing round on social media drawing sharp criticism from former military chiefs, activists and even international tennis legend Martina Navratilova.

Haridwar police, who had declined to register an FIR initially in the matter citing no complaints, has taken a case against Jitender Narayan, alias Waseem Rizvi, following the complaint by Trinamool Congress leader and RTI activist Saket Gokhale.

According to the FIR, the Right Wing leaders made provocative, inflammatory and derogatory speeches against Muslims and Islam.

"Taking cognizance of the video that is going viral on social media for spreading hatred by giving provocative speeches against a particular religion, a case has been registered against Wasim Rizvi alias Jitendra Narayan Tyagi and others under Section 153A IPC in Kotwali Haridwar and legal proceedings are in progress," read a tweet by the Uttarakhand police.

Meanwhile, the organisers of the event are of the stand that there is nothing wrong in the turn out of the event.
