Pleas in Delhi HC seek FIR against Rahul, Sonia, Owaisi for hate speechFebruary 27, 2020 15:58
A bunch of petitions was on Thursday filed in the Delhi High Court seeking directions for registration of an FIR against Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, AAP leader and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, AIMIM MP Assaduddin Owaisi and others over their alleged hate speeches.
One of the petitions, moved by a group called Lawyers Voice, sought the registration of FIR against Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, AAP leaders Manish Sisodia, Amanatullah Khan, AIMIM leaders Waris Pathan and Akbaruddin Owaisi and advocate Mehmood Pracha.
It also sought the constitution of a special investigation team (SIT) to probe into the matter.Another petition, filed by Hindu Sena, alleged that inflammatory speeches were made by Waris Pathan, Asaduddin Owaisi and Akbaruddin Owaisi and sought actions against them.
"The hate speech of Waris Pathan surcharged the communal tension in Delhi which has resulted in the death of several people," the Hindu Sena alleged in its plea.
It also stated that the petition, filed by Harsh Mandar, in the Delhi violence matter is an attempt to aggravate the situation by seeking criminal action against the leaders of BJP with sole intention to defame Hindus.
