The FIR was registered on Monday on the complaint of district head of Rashtriya Hindu Sher Sena, Bhagwan Sharan. He alleged that Zubair has called the aforementioned mentioned leaders “hate-mongers” as part of a “well-planned” conspiracy to spread enmity in society and hurt sentiments of Hindus.

Section 295A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs) of the Indian Penal Code and Section 67 (publishing or transmitting obscene material in electronic form) has been invoked in the FIR.

Narsinghanand, Bajrang Muni and Swaroop have a long history of making Islamophobic remarks and calling for violence against Muslims. A few months ago, Bajrang Muni had drawn widespread criticism for issuing rape threats to Muslim women.
