Gurugram Namaz Row: Complaint Against Hindu Leaders Over Provocative Speeches Against Muslim Community

A Muslim group has filed a complaint against three leaders of Hindu right-wing groups on Tuesday for allegedly making inflammatory speeches over Friday namaz in open spaces in Gurugram, the Quint reported.

The Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind in a complaint submitted to West Gurugram DCP Deepak Saharan alleged that several Hindu right-wing leaders have deliberately been making provocative statements over the matter in an attempt to spread disharmony. The police are yet to turn the complaint into an FIR, according to the web portal.

The complaint comes amid protests and disruptions of Friday namaz by the Muslims, citizens, and Hindutva groups at several locations, along with Sector 12, Sector 47, and Sector 37, among others.

In the complaint, the Muslim group has accused three people of “promoting enmity against Islam”- Dinesh Bharti (member of Bharat Mata Vahini), Kulbhushan Bhardwaj (legal advisor of Sanyukt Hindu Sangarsh Samiti), and Mahaveer Bhardwaj (Haryana state chief of the Sanyukta Hindu Sangharsh Samiti).

“On various occasions, we have found that certain group of persons, in particular Dinesh Bharti, Kulbhushan Bhardwaj, and Mahaveer Bhardwaj, have been repeatedly making provocative statements in public with the intention of promoting enmity against Islam which has deeply hurt the religious sentiments of the Muslim community,” the complaint said, adding they are repeatedly doing these acts that are prejudicial to the maintenance of communal harmony.

“Therefore, we request you to take appropriate action in accordance with the law immediately against the aforesaid three persons and all persons involved, in the conspiracy, who have deeply hurt the Muslim community and have designedly made such statements in an attempt to maliciously spread disharmony in the society,” it added.
