Haridwar: The action of Uttarakhand police has gained momentum as a storm has erupted across the country due to provocative speeches in the Haridwar Dharma Parliament. Police today arrested Dharmaguru Yeti Narasimhanand Giri in connection with the case and earlier Wasim Rizvi alias Jitendra Narayan Tyagi was also arrested. Meanwhile, there has been strong opposition to the action against Yeti Narasimhanand and a large crowd has gathered outside the police station.
Speakers had delivered provocative speeches at the Dharma Parliament held at Haridwar. The provocative language was used to target the Muslim religion. As a result, storms have risen across the country. The Supreme Court has also been asked to take action in this regard. At the same time, some social organizations and eminent persons called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Justice of India N.S. V. He has written a letter to Raman drawing his attention to this. Meanwhile, the apex court had on Wednesday issued important directions to the Uttarakhand government in this regard. It was directed to submit an affidavit within 10 days regarding the action. The first arrest was made by Wasim Rizvi alias Jitendra Narayan Tyagi, former chairman of the Uttar Pradesh Shia Central Waqf Board. After that, Yeti Narasimhanand Giri has also been arrested today. Narasimhanand has been arrested and taken to Haridwar police station. He is expected to appear in court tomorrow. Narasimhanand's arrest is being opposed and a large crowd of supporters has gathered outside the police station.
Police have registered a case against a total of ten people in the hate speech case. Annapurna's name is also in it and some more people are likely to be arrested in the coming days.
Wasim Rizvi was arrested on his way to Haridwar from Narsan. Yeti Narasimhanand was also with him. He had opposed Rizvi's arrest. I have also been charged with making provocative speeches. If you want to arrest Rizvi then arrest me too, said Narasimhanand. However, they were outraged when the police said that we would take action as per protocol. "You will all die and you will also kill your children," he had threatened the police.
