Case of the week: NaMo, Amit Shah, RSS' Bhagwat 'defamed yoga'

A case was filed today against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP president Amit Shah and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat in a court in the Bihar capital for giving a “religious colour” to yoga, thereby hurting people’s sentiments, one day before Modi’s national Yoga day celebrations.

“We have filed a case against Modi, Shah and Bhagwat in the chief judicial magistrate’s court in Patna for defaming yoga by giving it religious colour that has hurt the sentiments of people,” said Shruti Singh, the lawyer of petitioner social activist Dev Kumar Singh.

The case was filed on charges of committing deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings, and criminal conspiracy, the lawyer said.

The petitioner prayed to the court to order the filing of a first information report (FIR) against the three leaders.

The court will hear the case on June 22.

Kudos. This govt. is full of fringe elements who just want foster religious hatred. The very least which i really anticipate is banning of RSS.

Wow. I'm sure you put a lot of thought into that comment. Banning whatever we don't agree with, ain't that what we all need.
