Remarks Like ‘Jihadis’ and ‘Rohingyas’ Don’t Outrage Religious Sentiments: Mumbai Police Affidavit to Bombay HC

On July 9, Mumbai Police submitted an affidavit to the Bombay High Court in favour of BJP leaders for the use of words like Jihadis, Rohingyas and Bangladeshis, claiming that these terms are not offensive and do not invoke section 295A of the Indian Penal Code.

The affidavit included four places where BJP leaders like T Raja Singh, Nitesh Rane and Geeta Jain had delivered hate speeches saying that they were not against the Muslim community but were made against those involved in crimes who reside in the country illegally. 

The response by the Mumbai Police came after an activist, Ratan Kumar Chaudhary sought registration of an FIR against the BJP leaders Rane, T Raja Singh and others over their derogatory remarks and hate speeches

Reportedly, T Raja Singh, in one of his speeches in Vaishvik Rashtra Mahotsav, has openly stated that 50 staunch and fearless MPs are needed to establish a Hindu Rashtra.  

He was booked under sections 153(A) and 295(A) of the Indian Penal Code( now Bhartiya Nyaya Sanhita) for hurting religious sentiments during a rally on Mira Road. A similar FIR was also registered under section 153A against Meera Jain for promoting enmity between the groups.

Rohingyas persecuted by the Myanmar Government which has committed Human Rights atrocities, acts of genocide and others, now find home in different parts of India. Leading a tough life, Rohingya refugees face a threat of being deported forcibly.

The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) brought by the Modi Government aims to grant citizenship to minorities from the neighbouring countries but doesn’t include Muslim Communities like Rohingya Muslims, Ahmadiyya, Hazaras etc.
