narsinghanand: Yati Narsinghanand was booked for controversial statements in the Hindu Mahapanchayat in Delhi

Controversial priest Yati Narsinghanand was booked along with other speakers on Sunday for alleged hate speech delivered at a “Hindu Mahapanchayat” that “50 percent of Hindus will convert in 20 years” if a Muslim becomes the country’s prime minister.

The police said they refused permission for the event, but the organizers went ahead with the Mahapanchayat Sabha anyway and around 700-800 people attended the venue.

Three FIRs were filed in connection with the event, police said, adding that legal action will be taken against those who spread rumors and misinformation across various platforms, including social media.

All cases are being investigated and no arrests have yet been made, police said.

In a statement, Delhi Police said the North West District had received an application letter from Preet Singh, President of Save India Foundation, requesting permission to organize the event. Singh is a resident of Mangolpuri outside of Delhi.

“The application was rejected on the grounds that the organizer did not have permission from the land tenure authority – the development authority of Delhi – to organize this sabha at the Burari compound. Despite rejection by Delhi police, organizer Preet Singh reached the Burari on Sunday morning with his supporters on the ground and began organizing the Hindu Mahapanchayat Sabha. Around 700-800 people gathered at the venue and the organizer’s invitees began giving speeches from the stage,” the statement said.

A police team arrived at the venue. Some of the speakers, including Yati Narsinghan and Saraswati, the chief priests of Dasna Devi Temple, and Suresh Chauhanke, editor-in-chief of Sudarshan News, uttered words that promoted disharmony, animosity, hatred or ill will between two communities.

Accordingly, a case under sections 188 (disobeying duly given orders of a public official) and 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on the basis of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc. and committing acts detrimental to the maintenance of harmony are) of the Indian Penal Code was registered at Mukherjee Nagar Police Station.

The second FIR was registered due to a complaint by two journalists from a news portal, the police said.

“In their complaint, they allege that around 1:30 p.m., as they rushed to the exit, they were assaulted and assaulted by a group of people who also attempted to steal their cell phones and I-cards,” said the Deputy Commissioner (Northwest) said Usha Rangnani, adding that they refused to undergo a medical test.

The third FIR was registered following another complaint from a freelance journalist who claimed around 1 p.m. when he and two other journalists were interviewing a man, he was attacked by some people, the official said.

“The police intervened and ensured their safety. They were medically examined and a case was registered under Sections 323 (Penalty for Injuries Caused Willingly) and 341 (Penalty for Wrongful Restraint) of the Indian Penal Code,” she added.

The development comes after Narsinghanand, notorious for making outrageous remarks against Muslims, fueled another controversy with his remark that “50 percent of Hindus will convert in 20 years” if a Muslim becomes prime minister of India.

Addressing the “Hindu Mahapanchayat”, for whom the Delhi government had not granted sanction, he also exhorted Hindus to take up arms to fight for their existence.

The Mahapanchayat was organized by Preet Singh from Save India Foundation. This is the same group that previously held a similarly controversial event at Jantar Mantar in the state capital, raising anti-Muslim slogans.

Singh was arrested by Delhi police for making hate speech at the Jantar Mantar event.

Several other Hindu racist leaders also attended Sunday’s event.

Narsinghanand is currently on bail in connection with the Haridwar hate speech case.

“It won’t be until 2029 or 2034 or 2039 that a Muslim will become prime minister. Once a Muslim becomes Prime Minister, 50 percent will convert Hindus, 40 percent will be killed and the remaining 10 percent will either live in refugee camps or in other countries for the next 20 years.

“This will be the future of the Hindus. If you want to avoid that future, then become a man and take up arms,” ​​Narsinghanand said in a video clip of the Mahapanchayat shared on social media.

PTI could not independently verify the truthfulness of the video.

Narsinghanand has also been involved in hate speech cases in the past. A criminal complaint was filed against him in Haridwar for making highly provocative speeches against Muslims at the Dharma Sansad held in the holy city between December 17 and 19 last year.

In Sunday’s Mahapanchayat, Narsinghanand further claimed that Hindus should stop “begging” for their rights.

“For a long time I have seen Hindus begging for their demands to be met. But I have not seen even a single request from a Hindu fulfilled. We didn’t get Ram Janmabhoomi through begging, but through the intervention of the court, so stop being a beggar,” he was heard saying in the video clip.

Rangnani shared a tweet from one of the journalists who claimed that two young Muslim men from the media were attacked by a Hindu mob in the Mahapanchayat and also taken into custody, and told Twitter that no one had been arrested.

“Some of the reporters, willingly and willingly to avoid the crowd agitated by their presence, sat in a PCR van stationed at the venue and chose to go to the police station for security reasons. Nobody was arrested. Adequate police protection has been provided,” she said.

“For the dissemination of misinformation, the necessary measures will be taken against such individuals,” she added.
