“Saints are real terrorists” – Criminal case against Lalu for his insidious speech against Hinduism

published on November 22, 2008
KHAGARIA: A complaint was filed today in Khagaria lower court against RJD supremo and Railway minister Lalu Prasad for allegedly hurting religious

sentiments of Hindus in his speech at a public meeting in Muzaffarpur on November 19.

The complaint was filed by Vivek Bharti in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate of Khagaria for initiation of criminal case against Prasad and two journalists, including a resident editor of a Hindi daily, for publishing the leader’s speech.

The complainant contended that Prasad had made a derogatory statement during his speech at a public meeting organised for take-over of Bharat Wagon factory by the railways.

Prasad’s statement that “Sadhu sants asli atanki hain (Saints are real terrorists)” has hurt his and the entire Hindu community’s sentiments, Bharti said in his complaint.

The criminal case should be initiated against them under various sections — 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace), 295 A (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings of any class, by insulting its religion or religious beliefs) and 120 B (Criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code, he said.

The complainant submitted that after reading the newspaper he became unconscious and the derogatory statement has had adverse impact on his day to day life.

Bharti has also made Union Minister for Heavy Industries Raghunath Jha as party to the case as he was also present on the dais on that day.
