Complaint filed against Prashant Bhushan for hurting religious sentiments


A Police complaint has been filed against prominent lawyer and Swaraj India politician Prashant Bhushan over his controversial remark on Lord Krishna. The Complaint was filed by a Vishwa Hindu Parishad activist in Rajasthan's Chittorgarh district.  

Pankaj Tiwari filed the complaint Sunday evening alleging that Bhushan has "hurt religious sentiments" through his comments, and demanded action against him.

"The complaint is being probed and no FIR has yet been registered," SHO Chittorgarh Kotwali Omprakash said Monday.

"Romeo loved just one lady, while Krishna was a legendaryEve teaser. Would (UP CM Yogi) Adityanath have the guts to call his vigilantes Anti-Krishna squads?" Bhushan said in a tweet Sunday that set sparks flying.

As the controversy erupted, he tried to control the damage by tweeting that his remarks had been distorted and he had no intention of hurting religious sentiments.

Separate police complaints were filed against him yesterday by Delhi BJP spokesperson Tajinder Pal Bagga in the national capital and UP Congress spokesperson Zeeshan Haidar in Lucknow also.
