Case against Acharya Dharmendra in Rajasthan

March 24, 2003 21:55 IST

A case has been registered in Rajasthan against Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Acharya Dharmendra, who is currently under arrest in Madhya Pradesh for making an inflammatory speech.

Acharya Dharmendra's speech at a "Trishul Deeksha" ceremony in Badnaur town of Bhilwara district in Rajasthan on March 1 was objectionable and capable of causing communal disharmony, police sources said.

A case was registered against him with the Badnaur police station after reviewing cassettes of his speech, the police said.

However, a VHP spokesman said the case was registered under political pressure from the Ashok Gehlot government.

"There is no justification in registering a case after 20 days of the delivery of the speech, which caused no law and order problem, the spokesman said.
