New Delhi: The issue of alleged hate speeches by religious leaders in the Dharma Sansad in Haridwar is taking the form of a major controversy. On Sunday, 76 Supreme Court lawyers wrote a letter to CJI NV Raman urging him to take suo motu cognizance of these hate speeches. He termed the call for genocide by religious leaders as a grave threat.
Among those who wrote to CJI NV Raman are eminent lawyers like Dushyant Dave, Prashant Bhushan, Brinda Grover, Salman Khurshid, and former Patna High Court Judge Anjana Prakash. Expressing concern over the entire matter, he has told the court that due to lack of police action, judicial intervention is necessary immediately. The letter said that not only hate speeches were made in the Parliament of Religions but also open lying against a community. Such statements are not only a threat to India's unity and integrity but also endanger the lives of Muslims.
There is also a lot of reaction on social media about the speeches. A case was also registered a few days ago after the cash was seized, but only one person was nominated, later the names of two more persons have been included in the complaint. However, it is also worth noting that no case has been registered against AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi so far. He also made a controversial speech in Kanpur.
गिद्धों के कोसने से गाएँ नहीं मरती ओवैसी साहब, ताकत तो प्रभु राम ने दिखा दी है अपनी, भोलेनाथ ने दिखा दी है अपनी, कोई भी गलती की तो “गिद्धों” का भरपूर इलाज होगा इस बार !! pic.twitter.com/HNC73fQbj6— Shalabh Mani Tripathi (@shalabhmani) December 23, 2021
What Owaisi said:-
In the video that is going viral, Owaisi had said, "I want to tell the policemen to remember that neither CM Yogi nor Modi will always be a PM. We are silent on seeing Muslim times, but keep in mind that we are not going to forget anything. We will remember your injustice. Allah will destroy you with his own strength. Inshallah, we will remember and time will change. Who will come to save you when Yogi goes to his monastery and Modi to the Himalayas? Remember, we are not going to forget. Asaduddin Owaisi's controversial statement is said to have been made at a meeting in Kanpur on December 12. No FIR has been registered on the statement so far.
