Plea filed in SC by Hindu Sena for FIRs against Owaisi and others for hate speeches

NEW DELHI: President of Hindu Sena has filed a plea in the Supreme Court seeking a direction for registration of FIR against those making hate speeches on 'Sanatan Dharma' and Shri Ram Temple and Kashi and Mathura shrines.

The plea sought directions against various leaders, including Asaduddin Owaisi, Udhayanidhi Stalin, Kamal Haasan, A Raja, Swami Prasad Maurya and others.

The PIL filed by Hindu Sena President Vishnu Gupta sought an order from the Court.

The petitioner also sought issuance of order or direction to ensure that an independent, credible and impartial probe is conducted by an SIT into the incidents of hate speeches against the Hindu community including the speeches delivered in various place in all over the country.

The petitioner said that Udhayanidhi Stalin, Tamil Nadu Minister for Sports and Youth Affairs, at a conference organized by the Tamil Nadu Progressive Writers Artists Association in Chennai, made alleged hate speech.

Udhayanidhi said, “Few things cannot be opposed, they should be eradicated. We can’t oppose dengue, mosquitoes, malaria or corona, we have to eradicate them. In the same way, we have to eradicate Sanatana (Sanatan Dharma), rather than opposing it."

Similarly, Nilgiris Lok Sabha MP, A Raja supported Stalin’s remarks comparing Sanatana Dharma with dengue and malaria and was like the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that needed to be destroyed.

The petitioner alleged that on January 01, 2024, Asaduddin Owaisi, a Member of Parliament had allegedly given a provocative speech at an event organised at Madrasa-e-Arabiya Anwar-ul-Uloom in Hyderabad. His speech was viral on social media.

"In the viral video, it is evident that he is inciting the Muslim youth, Owaisi by issuing an appeal to the youngsters of the community to galvanise and inhabit mosques. Referring to the demolition of the
disputed Babri structure at Ayodhya, Owaisi alleged that otherwise, Muslims would be bereft of Mosques and their mosques would be snatched away from them," the petitioner said.

It further said that these speeches are not mere hate speeches but amount to an open call for murder of members of Hindus, posing a grave threat not just to the unity and integrity of our country but also endanger the lives of millions of Hindu citizens.

He cited the directions issued by the Supreme Court in Tehseen Poonawalla against Union of India (2018) in support of his contentions.

The petitioner named the Union government, Police chief of Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra, besides the accused political leaders as party respondents to the plea.
