Case Against 10 For Burning Pages Of Ramcharitmanas In UP
Lucknow Police have booked greater than 10 individuals for “promoting enmity” after they allegedly burnt photocopies of the pages of Ramcharitmanas within the Vrindavan space of the town yesterday.
The police stated that the FIR was registered on a grievance lodged by BJP chief Satnam Singh Lavi.
The case has been filed in opposition to 10 named and a number of other unidentified individuals on the PGI police station underneath sections 120 B, 142, 143, 153-A, 295, 295-A, 298, 504, 505(2), 506 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
“No one has been arrested till now,” the police stated.
According to the grievance filed by the BJP chief, Akhil Bharatiya OBC Mahasabha burned “photocopies” of pages allegedly carrying “objectionable comments on women and Dalits” in Ramcharitmanas in help of Samajwadi Party chief Swami Prasad Maurya.
Yashpal Singh Lodhi, Devendra Yadav, Mahendra Pratap Yadav, Naresh Singh, SS Yadav, Sujit, Santosh Verma, and Salim are amongst those that have been booked.
Swami Prasad Maurya, thought of a outstanding OBC chief in Uttar Pradesh, had sought a ban on the work composed by the Sixteenth-century poet-saint Tulsidas alleging that Dalits and girls have been “insulted” in Ramcharitmanas.
The SP chief stated, “I don’t have any issue with Ramcharitramanas but parts of it have insulting comments and sarcasm directed at particular castes and sects. Those should be removed.”
Speaking on the difficulty with ANI earlier, Maurya stated, “Those who threatened to slit my neck and tongue were seers or were from a particular caste. Had the same threat been made by a person belonging to some other religion, he would have been called a terrorist. Are the seers threatening to slit my tongue and neck not terrorists devils, and executioners? If they had, indeed, believed in the religion that they claim to espouse, they couldn’t have said such things.”
