The Uttarakhand Police on Sunday said it has added two more persons in the FIR in connection with the alleged hate speech in the Dharma Sansad in Haridwar. The police have named Dharm Das and Annapurna, a woman in the hate speech case.
Earlier, according to the media reports, police said it had booked Jitendra Tyagi, and others under Section 153A Indian Penal Code in the case.
According to NDTV, Anand Swaroop, an attendee of Dharma Sansad said, “We stand by our statements that are well thought out. If a person rapes our sister, won’t we kill him? Speakers talked about killing such persons, not ordinary Muslims who are our friends. No one can stop India from becoming Hindu Rashtra”.
