New Delhi, February 16, 2016: Hindu groups are angry at a tweet by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal which allegedly disrespected Lord Hanuman.
Vishnu Gupta of Hindu Sena went ahead and filed a case aginst the Chief Minister of Delhi for hurting Hindu sentiments:
Hindu Sena is a fast emerging voice in the Hindu circles as it continues to work on the principle that all the other Hindu groups have failed the country and the Hindu society. Earlier, Hindu Sena activists, including Vishnu Gupta, the President of Hindu Sena, were detained by the police for protesting against the anti-India slogans at JNU and protesting against the Valentines Day.
As if this was not enough, another Hindu group, the Hindu Legal Cell, also filed a complaint against Arvind Kejriwal:
In an earlier tweet, Hindu Legal cell had disclosed that it would file a case against the Delhi Chief Minister, in a tweet from its official handle, it wrote: “We are going to Lodge FIR against
@ArvindKejriwal for disrespecting Hanuman Ji & hurting sentiments of Hindus. #KejriwalInsultsHanuman.”
Hindu groups were also angry with the Delhi Chief Minister after he came out in support of JNU students who are being investigated for shouting anti-India and pro-Pakistan slogans.
Meanwhile, the Aam Aadmi Party came out strongly against the alleged violence that the Delhi Police indulged in and issued a press release on the same.
The AAP leaders Ashutosh and Dilip Pandey met the Special Commissioner (Law & Order) of Delhi Police, on the JNU issue and also submitted two video clips to the Police and demanded action against those being seen in these clips.
Like Arvind Kejriwal said previously, AAP reiterated its view that that those who raised anti-India and pro-Pakistan slogans should be strictly dealt with in accordance with law.
But, the party leaders told the police officer that it was highly objectionable for them the way Delhi Police treated the students and teachers who the party believes are innocent.
AAP also questioned the slapping of sedition charge on JNU students union president.
