Aligarh: Uttar Pradesh police on Tuesday registered a case against a right-wing leader in Aligarh for her controversial remarks against a particular community.

Sadhvi Annapoorna alias Pooja Shakun Pandey, who calls herself the national secretary of the Akhil Bharat Hindi Mahasabha, has been booked for promoting enmity between different groups.

"A First Information Report has been registered against Pooja Shakun Pandey in connection with her controversial statement. Case registered against her in police station Gandhipark under section 153A/153B/295A/298/505 of IPC," said Kalanidhi Naithani, Superintendent of Police, Aligarh.

Pandey has been arrested twice over the last two years by the Aligarh police for controversial acts and statements, but got bail in both cases.

Pandey and some other Hindu religious leaders were booked by the Uttarakhand Police last year for hate speech at the Haridwar "Dharam Sansad" (religious assembly).

The Delhi Police also registered a hate speech case earlier this year relating to a "Dharam Sansad" in the national capital.

Between December 17 and 19, two events organised in Delhi (by the Hindu Yuva Vahini) and Haridwar (by Yati Narsinghanand), saw hate speeches including open calls for violence against Muslims.

Pooja Shakun also made headlines in 2019 when she fired shots at an effigy of Mahatma Gandhi, and raised slogans praising Nathuram Godse at an event in Aligarh.
