Hyderabad: Hindu Sanghatan leaders in Hyderabad filed a police complaint against CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury in Saidabad police station on Sunday.
In their complaint, they demanded the police to register a case against Yechury for his offensive remarks on Hindu sacred texts Ramayana and Mahabharat, hurting the religious sentiments of Hindus at large."
According to police, they received a complaint from K Karuna Sagar (40), an advocate and the president of 'Hindu Sanghatan' in Hyderabad, alleging that when he was searching on theinternet on Saturday he had gone through a news item in a news portal, in which the CPM leader Sitaram Yechury while speaking in an event in Bhopal, said that " Ramayana and Mahabharata are also filled with instances of violence and battles.
Being a pracharak (RSS functionary), you narrate the epics but still claim Hindus can't be violent ? What is the logic behind saying that there is a religion which engages in violence" and we Hindus don't, hurting the religious sentiments of Hindus at large.''
He submitted the link of the portal to police and alleged that Yechury went on to brand religious epics Ramayana and Mahabharata, which are the most sacred texts of Hindus, as specimens of Hindu violence.
He resorted to insult and annoy Hindus by passing derogatory remarks denunciating the sanctity of sacred texts openly without having any fear of law, the complainant added.
The advocate further alleged that for his vested personal and political interests Yechury had made these derogatory comments by outraging religious feelings of crores of Hindus including himself and also to create breach of peace in society.
He urged the police to book cases against Yechury under sections 295 (A), 153 (a) and 504 of IPC for hurting religious sentiments of Hindus.
Reacting to the complaint, P Suresh, detective inspector, Saidabad police station said that action would be taken on the complaint after taking the legal opinion on the issue.
