New Delhi: While some Muslim organisations had approached the Supreme Court over hate speech in The Parliament of Religions in Ridwara, Hindu organisations have now launched a front against anti-Hindu statements by Muslim leaders and clerics. In the same episode, two right-wing organisations, the Hindu Sena and the Hindu Front for Justice have filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking protection from hate statements by Muslims. According to the report, Hindu Sena President Vishnu Gupta in a petition filed in the apex court has sought the arrest of Muslim leaders for hate speech.
The petition sought arrest against several leaders like AIMIM leader Akbaruddin Owaisi, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Amanatullah Khan and Waris Pathan for making provocative statements against Hindus. However, the Hindu Front for Justice in its petition has demanded that if the apex court is investigating hate speech against Muslims, it should also examine hate statements against Hindus. The Hindu organisation has demanded the Supreme Court to set up an SIT to probe hate rhetoric about Hindus and Hindu deities. The organisation has also appealed for directions to investigate the matter.
The Hindu Front for Justice Organisation has prepared a list mentioning the rhetoric made against Hindus by Muslim leaders, clerics before moving to the Supreme Court. The petition also mentions speeches made by AIMIM leaders Akbaruddin Owaisi and Waris Pathan against Hindus. In which Hindu deities were insulted in 2013 and threatened Hindus saying, 'We (Muslims) are 25 crores and you (Hindus) are 100 crores. Remove the police for 15 minutes, show how much energy the varieties are. '
Similarly, the petition also mentions the speeches of a West Bengal cleric in which the maulvi said, "If the Rohingyas are deported, they will kill millions of people. The Hindu Front for Justice, through advocate Vishnu Shankar Jain, has said that Hindus are disturbed and intimidated by the provocative statements of Muslim leaders. Such statements bring back memories of the Muslim League, which resulted in the partition of the country.''
