Delhi: Police lodge FIR against unknown persons for raising 'anti-Muslim' slogans at Jantar Mantar
New Delhi/IBNS: The Delhi Police have lodged a First Information Report (FIR) against unknown persons for raising "inflammatory, anti-Muslim" slogans during a march at Jantar Mantar Sunday, media reports said.
The march, which was called by Supreme Court lawyer and former Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Ashwini Upadhyay, was against "colonial era rules".
DCP (New Delhi district) Deepak Yadav said as quoted by The Indian Express, " A case has been registered under relevant sections of law. The investigation is in progress."
"There was a protest against colonial laws used to suppress Indians by the British, which still exist. We were there to protest against those laws and for a Uniform Civil Code because our demand was that there should be one rule in one country," Shipra Srivastava, media in-charge of Bharat Jodo Movement said Sunday as quoted by The Indian Express.
"There was no such (inflammatory) slogan in my knowledge… there were 5,000 people and if five-six people in some corner would be shouting such slogans, then we would disassociate ourselves from them," she added.
