An FIR has been registered against Hindu religious leader Kalicharan Maharaj after he made derogatory remarks against Mahatma Gandhi and hailed his assasin, Nathuram Godse in his speech at the two-day ‘dharma sansad’ held at Ravan Bhata ground in Raipur on Sunday. In the same speech, he targeted Islam and Muslims too.
Based on the complaint of Congress leader Pramod Dubey, a case was registered against Kalicharan on Sunday night at Chhattisgarh’s Tikrapara police station under Indian Penal Code sections 505 (2) (statements creating or promoting enmity, hatred or ill-will between classes) and 294 (obscene acts), a police official said.
During the event in Raipur, Kalicharan had said, “The target of Islam is to capture nation through politics. In front of our eyes they had captured in 1947 (referring to partition)…They had earlier captured Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan. They captured Bangladesh and Pakistan through politics…I salute Nathuram Godse that he killed Gandhi.”
Kalicharan Maharaj was criticised by Congress leaders for his remarks. “The use of abusive words against Mahatma Gandhi is highly objectionable. Kalicharan should first prove that he is a saint,” the state Congress’s communication wing head, Sushil Anand Shukla said.
