A case was registered against Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) alumnus Sharjeel Usmani in Pune on Tuesday. The case was registered against Usmani on the allegation that he allegedly promoted enmity between different groups through his speech at a recent event at the Elgar Parishad. In Maharashtra, the opposition BJP had demanded action against Usmani accusing him of hurting religious sentiments. Pune Police Commissioner Amitabh Gupta said that a case has been registered against Usmani under Section 153 (A) of the IPC. He said that a complaint was lodged against Usmani by the local leader of BJP Yuva Morcha Pradeep Gavade. He said that further investigation is going on in the case.
Earlier, Leader of the Opposition Devendra Fadnavis had written a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray demanding that Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) alumnus Sharjeel Usmani made objectionable statements against Hindu society at Yalgar Parishad held in Pune on 30 January 2021. The sentiments of the entire Hindu society have been hurt. Fadnavis alleged that he made a provocative statement, demanding that the state government take strict action against Sharjil Usmani at the earliest and file an FIR for treason.
Let us tell you that on 30 January, at the Yalgar Parishad in Pune, Usmani said, today’s Hindu society has rotted badly in India. After this, the politics of Maharashtra has become hot and BJP is raising this issue vigorously.
