The Aam Aadmi Party media incharge of Chabbewal Dr Kulwant Singh has filed a criminal complaint against Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal in the court of Judicial Magistrate Prabhjot Kaur seeking action against him under Section 295-A for hurting the religious sentiments.
The complaint said that bicycles being distributed by the state government to schoolgirls had Badal’s photo pasted on the front carrier while brave Sikh general Mai Bhago’s name was printed on the chain cover.
The complainant said that feet of the girls riding the cycle touch Mai Bhago’s name continuously. It has hurt not only his sentiments but also religious sentiments of the entire Sikh community. Advocates Navin Jairath and Manish Handa filed the complaint in the court and the next date of hearing was August 5.
The AAP leaders Sandeep Saini, Nirmal singh Hakumatpuri, Ajaib Singh, Mani Gogia Dinesh Sidhu, Harpal Lada, Ashok Rana and Tarun Gupta said that Badals often speak about the Panth being in danger when they themselves were insulting the community. They alleged that Badals had no respect for sentiments of people. Earlier too there had been a similar case of having photographs of Mata Chintpurni on Tirath Yatra buses near the footpads. The AAP leaders demanded that Chief Minister Badal should also be booked as was done in the case of their leader Ashish Khetan.
They said that if an FIR was not lodged, another criminal complaint of hurting religious sentiments would be filed against him in the court.
