NEW DELHI — Ghaziabad Police have filed three cases against the infamous Dasna Devi Temple priest Yati Narsinghanand for making objectionable remarks against women including Chairperson of National Commission for Women Rekha Sharma.

Moreover, a Delhi court has asked police to submit an action taken report on a plea seeking FIR against Narsinghanand and Karni Sena Chief Suresh Paul Amu for alleged hate speeches targeting Muslims.

Ghaziabad Police took the action following complaints by Rekha Sharma filing three FIRs at Masuri Police Station. “Three FIRs have been filed against Yati Narsinghanand for his remarks against women. The separate incidents were brought to our notice through social media in which remarks against women were made. The National Commission for Women had also objected to it, following which complaints were registered. Further investigation is pending,” Indian Express quoted Dr Iraj Raj, SP, Rural Ghaziabad, as saying.

The FIRs invoked different sections of Indian Penal Code 505 (1) (c) (intent to incite offence), 509 (insult modesty of a woman, 504 (intentional insult), 506 (intimidation) of the IPC and section 67 of the IT Act.

According to the report, one FIR says Narsinghanand is seen making “objectionable, insulting and threatening comments on Hindu women having relations with people from another religion.” Second FIR says that the accused made objectionable remarks against women in politics which has hurt their sentiments.

Delhi BJP leaders Kapil Sharma and Tajinder Bagga had also demanded legal action against the temple priest.

Narsinghanand, however, defended himself saying his remarks were taken out of context and that those videos were edited. But the people who exposed him on social media said that the videos were streamed live on Facebook, so the claim of editing does not hold water.

Meanwhile, Metropolitan Magistrate Rajat Goyal asked police to answer whether a complaint has been made by the petitioner Faizal Ahmed Khan and if so then inform the court about the status of investigation and FIR.

Khan had approached SHO Jamia Nagar Police station seeking FIR against Narsinghanand and Amu over alleged hate speeches but his complaint was not entertained forcing him to move the court.

The complaint said that Karni Sena Chief had made communally divisive remarks against Muslims calling on Hindus to treat Muslims as their enemies while addressing a Hindutva mass rally in Haryana.

The complaint also sought FIR against Narsinghanand alleging that he made controversial remarks against Muslims students in minority institutes like AMU and Jamia Millia during his speech in Aligarh. These students, the infamous Hindu priest had said, “cannot bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of India or uphold the sovereignty and integrity of India.”
