AAP offending religious sentiment: BJP
NEW DELHI: In order to grab power, CM Arvind Kejriwal is offending the religious sentiments of the Hindus, said Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari. "Arvind Kejriwal has been insulting the Hindus and the symbol of Hinduism. Today, in order to grab power, he is offending our religious sentiments of the Hindus. The people will give a befitting reply to these anti-Hindu elements in the forthcoming elections. He said that this act of Kejriwal is also a violation of the Model Code of Conduct. Such mischievous acts of Kejriwal and his hate for Hinduism will prove costly to him," said Tiwari.
He also said that this is not for the first time that CM Kejriwal is doing such things to insult the Hindus. Even before this by tweeting the photo of a cow and our Swastik Symbol he tried to offend our religious sentiments. On this matter Delhi's LOP Vijender Gupta met the Chief Electoral Officer on Saturday on the same matter.
Meanwhile, a Supreme Court lawyer on Saturday filed a complaint against Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal over a tweet posted by him recently. In his complaint to Delhi police commissioner Amulya Patnaik, advocate Alakh Alok Shrivastava alleged that CM Kejriwal with his tweet posted on March 20 hurt the religious sentiments of Hindu community.
"Around 10:13 pm on March 20, the accused posted a tweet from his official Twitter handle depicting a broom chasing away a 'Hindu Swastika' symbol. This is an extremely sacred symbol in Hinduism and is worshipped by many Hindus," the complaint read. The lawyer alleged that the tweet was published online to promote disharmony, enmity, hatred and ill-will among different religious groups.
