Dhoni in trouble for ‘hurting' sentiments

Dhoni in trouble for ‘hurting sentiments
A case has been registered in a local court against India and Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni for ‘denigrating’ a Hindu god and ‘hurting’ the religious sentiments of the Hindus.

The case has been registered under section 295 (injuring or defiling place of worship with intent to insult the religion of any class) along with 34 of the Indian Penal Code against Dhoni on a complaint filed by social activist Jayakumar Hiremath.

In his complaint, Hiremath alleged Dhoni denigrated the Hindu god and hurt religious feelings by  posing for an advertisement in a business magazine as Lord Vishnu holding several things including a shoe in his hands. Taking cognisance of the offence and registering the case, the court posted it to 12 May for recording the statement of the complainant.
