Nearly a fortnight after VHP leader Praveen Togadia allegedly made a hate speech against Muslims, the Nanded police Thursday filed a case against him for promoting enmity on grounds of religion.
In his January 22 speech at Bhokhar in Nanded, Togadia had listed out the communal massacres of Nelli, Bhagalpur and Gujarat, purportedly in reaction to AIMIM leader Akbaruddin Owaisi's comments that Muslims would show their might to Hndus if police was taken aside.
Uproar in social media had made the Centre take cognizance of the issue and MoS for Home RPN Singh asked the state to take action against Togadia if his speech was found inflammatory. The Nanded police had also received complaints and finally decided to file a case on Thursday.
