Togadia to be booked for hate speech

Togadia to be booked for hate speech

The hate speech scanner has finally caught the VHP working  president  Praveen Togadia who is termed  as  Saffron Owaisi after he he gave a similar hate speech.

The Andhra Pradesh Police has received a complaint from Maharashtra Police but will first go through the process of verifying the authenticity of the speech uploaded on YouTube and seek legal opinion on matters of jurisdiction, an exercise that may take some days. The complaint was  filed in Hyderabad on Tuesday after clippings of his speech went viral on social networking sites.

Reacting to the hate speech case Togadia said that he did not name any particular community or threaten violence and that he was just eluding to instances from the past.
Togadia performed his tit-for-tat act against  the MIM on January 22 in a place called Bhokar in Nanded district of Maharashtra, 25 km from the Andhra Pradesh border. Bhokar is 80 km from Nirmal in Adilabad district of Andhra Pradesh, where Akbaruddin Owaisi  became the focus of national notoriety in December. for his hate speech .

In his fit  of rage against MIM, Togadia had matched hate word for hate word in his 
sing-song manner of speaking  to a cheering and highly volatile crowd of Maharastra town  “Remember Nellie in Assam, where the police was removed ,over 3000 people died, not one of them was a Hindu. Remember Bhagalpur, where the police was removed, so many people died that it was difficult to count, not one of them was a Hindu. Dead bodies flew into the river.”
