Book suo motu case against Bajrang Dal, says Khader
U.T. Khader, former Minister and Mangaluru MLA, on Tuesday requested the town police to register a suo motu case of disturbing peace within the society against office-bearers of Bajrang Dal, who lately held press convention searching for legislation to cease ‘Love Jihad’.
He stated the office-bearers of Bajrang Dal held the meet on April 2 when the police arrested 4 of their activists in reference to the stabbing of a 23-year-old man and assault of the 23-year-old lady in Pumpwell Junction on April 1.
Mr. Khader stated the office-bearers falsely termed the incident as ‘Love Jihad’ and included few current acts of vigilantism as motion against Love Jihad. “How can organisations be allowed to hold such meets where they justify their activists taking law into their hands to stop love jihad. The office-bearers should be booked for breaching peace in the society,” he stated, and added that he would shortly write a letter on this regard to Home Minister Basavaraj Bommai.
Bajrang Dal Prant Sanchalak Sunil K.R. and Prant Sahasanchalak Muralikrishna Hansantadka addressed the convention on April 2 whereby they demanded legal guidelines on ‘Love Jihad’ and in addition claimed that their activists have been being falsely focused by the police.
Mr. Khader stated if Bajrang Dal and VHP needed a legislation on love jihad, they might demand it by protesting against the State and Centre. “Let them protest. Instead, they are making innocent Bajrang Dal activists land in bars for the acts of vigilantism,” he stated.
