Sirsi: BJP MP Ananthkumar Hegde booked for alleged remarks against Islam

Sirsi  (PTI) : The five-time MP from Uttara Kannada had allegedly made the remarks at a press conference at Sirsi last Sunday.


BJP Lok Sabha MP Ananthkumar Hegde has landed in trouble with the police registering a criminal case against him suo motu for his alleged remarks linking Islam to terrorism.

The case has been booked at Sirsi in Uttara Kannada district under section 295(A) of IPC relating to “deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs,” police said.

The five-time MP from Uttara Kannada had allegedly made the remarks at a press conference at Sirsi last Sunday, drawing a link between Islam and terrorism, triggering protests from Muslim organisations.

Muslim organisations in the communally sensitive Bhatkal town in the district had held protests and submitted a memorandum to the district Superintendent of Police Vamsi Krishna, calling for action against Hegde.

Krishna said security had been tightened in Bhatkal as a precautionary step.

In the neighbouring Dakshina Kannada district also Muslim outfits had sought action.

State Health Minister U T Khader had requested Home Minister G Parameshwara to take suo motu action against Hegde for his “shocking and irresponsible” statement against Islam.


  1. Dear readers,

    In PM Modi’s every third MP in the 16th Lok Sabha has criminal charges.Party-wise, the largest 98 or 35 percent of the 281 winners from the BJP have in their affidavits declared criminal cases against themselves and six of the 37 winners (16 percent) from the AIADMK, 15 of the 18 winners (83 percent) from the Shiv Sena ally of BJP.

    While PM Modi is globetrotting hard selling his dream project of ‘Make in India’ ,’Digital India’ ‘smart India’,his sangh affiliated bad mouth MP’s are barking man-ki-baat every now and then.

    Earlier it is Sadhvi,Yogi,baba are known for bad mouth syndrome,know new entrain from Uttara Kannada district has joined the club.

    PM Modi’s ‘minimum government,maximum governance’ full of unique characters.While PM performs ‘Maun yoga’ ,his cabinet colleagues busy to vitiate peaceful environment of the region.

    In the past under Karnataka BJP Home ministry Late Acharya connected Bhatkal city name to every terrorism in the state. There are many innocent Muslim still languishing in jail without any charges.Now as the election approaching for 2018 assembly elections BJP has already taken the RSS high command instructions seriously and sharpen the attack on Congress with JD(S).

    This is nothing but an attempt to vitiate the peaceful atmosphere to polarise the majority vote bank. As the Sangh parivar has succeeded in undivided Canara by keeping the pot boiling the experiment is shifted to north Canara.

    Is this PM Modi’s real development agenda? Is this MP is part of ‘Good governance’?

    Jai Hind

    • What a shame and national tragedy is this, a bunch of street rowdies are running the nation as
      M.P.s, Ministers etc, throwing totally destructive statements. India has the 2nd largest Muslim population in the world, 177 million people, out of the world’s 2nd largest population of 1.6 billion people.

      If he is not kicked out of the BJP and put him jail for a few years for his totally stupid and deeply hurting statement, it is a total shame and disgrace on the BJP. Beef handlers are put into jail for 10 years in Haryana, so he deserves more than that.

      Mr. M.P., how you will classify the VHP-BD- and a bunch of senas etc terrorizing the minorities in India? Holy Organizations indeed! The Muslims nations of the world, especially the nearby GCC countries are watching these reckless statements of the BJP politicians, and they will be punishing India some way through applying punitive actions.

    Ruckus in Parliament over minister Ram Shankar Katheria’s hate speech

    Smriti Irani’s deputy Ram Shankar Katheria is in trouble over his hate speech in Agra. Both Houses of the Parliament witnessed repeated disruptions over Katheria’s remarks as proceedings began today, a day after the Budget.

    While Irani is targeting campus after campus using ‘anti national’,his deputy is asking Hindus to arm and take revenge to convert ‘Agra into Muzaffarnagar’.

    In the city of love, Agra, so much hatred is spread. The man preaches hate, wants to divide the country on communal lines, calls own country men [Muslims] as ‘enemy’ and he is still a UNION MINISTER! Incredible India.

    This is happening in a supposedly evolved and great democracy like India. All institutions seem paralysed.

    Do we hear Union ministers giving call for violence against minorities in any other neighbouring country, even those nations that are notorious.

    The Centre should have taken immediate steps after he attended the meeting and made the inflammatory, criminal speech.

    This man should have been dropped from Union cabinet immediately. In fact, Ram Shankar Katheria should have been arrested by now.

    *Will sedition case be registered against him by Akhilesh government?
    *Will Prime Minister Narendra Modi take action against Katheria for hate speech?
    *Will National Commission for Minorities (NCM) take action?

    Is he part of PM Modi’s ‘good governance’ which promised ‘development’ under ‘minimum government,maximum governance’?

    Jai Hind

    • Srmiti Irani started playing her game plan to take over or to close the St. Stephen’s college using a student, putting shame and blame on a disabled professor for sexual harassment. Finally the truth came out. The specially appointed serial actress will be faced with many roles of political acting at the Parliament in the days to come.

      Whether in politics or business, there is an hidden spiritual dimension working, the current BJP Government has no idea about that due to their overconfidence, and the strategy used by certain autocrats of the world through repeating a lie a few dozen times, thus to brainwash the listeners as solid truth.

  3. I don’t expect anything better from taqiyya artist Shaikh on this topic. However, look at the hypocrisy of AS Beef Mathew!!! On any given day, you can find a number of leading political leaders and thinkers here in USA making the same connection that the BJP MP made!! If you are an illiterate who is not aware of this simple fact, here are a few names to help you educate yourself – Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio (all presidential candidates), a number of progressive thinkers like Bill Maher, Sam Harris, Gaad Saad, Rubin etc. We also have tv channels like Fox News that repeats this several hundred times a day what BJP MP said.

    Still, AS Beef Mathew acts as if it is a national tragedy that happens only in India and shows his fake outrage!! What a character!!

    • Cow Pai, Trump has a breakless tongue, so he is talking before he is thinking which is a mild mental disorder. He won’t show his income tax return, hiding something. An honest politician. He may join the BJP shortly, thus some of the MPs will be getting more stamina to throw mud at the Muslims in India and around the world. How you think about him, he is against the IT professional taking the jobs in the U.S. Do you know anything about his Trump University bluffed 20000 people, charged upto $ 36000.00/person and he made 40 million, offering course in making millions of dollars in real estate, he made money.

      His name was used after praying him huge amount by many con artists; in multi vitamins marketing through pyramid scheme, thus fooled a lot of people millions of dollars. He is another big joke in the American politics. Indeed, he must start his own New York Jokers Party. Cow Pai, keep on representing your great party, and the beef Mathew will respond, you are my good debating friend.

    • RSS Pai Duplicate, no one expects anything better from you.

      You and your RSS are busy making infuriating speeches against Muslims, so that they would react in defence. This reaction, procured by you by insulting the Muslims, would polarise Hindus to provide Hindu Vote bank to ensure electoral victory in the ensuing elections to the Karnataka Assembly to the BJP.

      You want Congress Mukta Bharat by defeating the Congress in Karnataka. You would make Hindu BHarat, and make Bharath “Islam Mukt and Cristian Mukt”!

      RSS also wants the government of Karnataka to file cases against the religious crooks like Anantha Kumar, for it would brand the Congress government as pro-Muslim anti Hindu.

      The very same RSS which even goes to extremist separatist fringe elements in Kashmir, like Mehboobaa Mufti, to politically hug her party, so that they could form a government there. For that they are joining hands with anti India elements.

      They are preaching anti-Islam mentality in Hindu Majority areas and indulging in pro-Muslim and pro-Christian actions where Hindus are in minority.

      Modi has stationed RSS leader Ram Madhav in Srinagar to woo Mehbooba Mufti, in spite of her demanding the dead body of Afzal Guru to construct a memorial to him in Kashmir!

      Shameless creatures who are up to anything to procure vote for political power, including betraying the Hindus, as they do in Kashmir.

      They ban beef in Hindu majority states and encourage beef in Hindu minority states like Goa, Meghalaya, Arunachal PraDESH, ETC.


      They are anti India crooks!

  4. “….remarks against Islam” – Report

    How dare this MP made such an insulting, demeaning remark?????? Didn’t he know that ‘IS’ in ISIS stands for ‘IDLI – SAAMBAAR’ ?? I am really proud of our Police dept, State govt, local MLA who protested against this gross injustice and our media!!! Good job everyone!! smiles…

    • “Didn’t he know that ‘IS’ in ISIS stands for ‘IDLI – SAMBAR’ ??” – STATES RSS STOOGE!

      Sir, the ISIS flag and pro ISIS slogans gives political power to the RSS and BJP in Kashmir, by mating with the party of Mehbooba Mufti.

      The ISIS in some Islamic countries, provide Idli Sambar and sweets to the RSS in India.

  5. Cow Pai, . Simply wait and watch, how these street goons are going to create more economic problems for India. I will explain that later on, until then, increase the cow urine consumption double dose.

  6. Dear readers,

    As BJP MP for making ‘blasphemous and insulting remarks’ against Islam and Muslims,Haryana BJP government who bowed to Jat violence is slowly saffronising cities,roads and airport after Hindutva.

    In a latest move,BJP government in Haryana has changed the name of Mustafabad village in Yamunanagar district to Saraswati Nagar.

    BJP govt renames Yamunanagar’s Mustafabad to Saraswati Nagar

    When the BJP rode to power in Haryana for the first time ever last year, riding on the crest of a Modi wave and a development agenda, it gave no hints that it would take steps to push Hindutva, soft or otherwise. A year on, Manohar Lal Khattar’s government appears to have made it a top priority.
    Khattar, who was barely known in the state as a BJP leader, remained behind the scene as an RSS pracharak for long. A close associate of Narendra Modi, who was in-charge of Haryana affairs before moving to Delhi, Khattar, together with two senior party colleagues, Anil Vij, a five-time MLA, and Ram Bilas Sharma, has now begun a not-too-subtle agenda to promote Hindutva.
    In Khattar’s Haryana, Roads Being Renamed After Hindutva Symbols

    His latest move is to name all major roads and traffic intersections in Panchkula – which was built as an extension of Chandigarh – after Hindutva symbols. Chandigarh’s planner Le Corbusier had mandated that the city’s roads, roundabouts and crossings should not be named after any person or an institution, and be given generic names as Madhya Marg, Jan Marg and Sukhna Path. Taking the cue, no roads in Panchkula too were named after a person or an institution.

    Adding to its list of promoting Hindutva symbols and eulogising the RSS, the state government recently suggested naming the new International Airport in Chandigarh after late Dr Mangal Sein, a top RSS pracharak and former Haryana deputy chief minister.

    Supreme Court said Ganga cleansing programmes have been going on for over three decades with almost no impact on the ground and wondered whether the government wanted to do something during this tenure or would it spill over to the next term PM Modi’s government.While Ganga is yet be cleaned,Haryana BJP is digging the ground for lost mythical Sarasvati river investing Rs 50 crores,when its own BJP ruled Maharashtra farmers suicide rate touched all time high.

    In other hand Modi is projecting ‘make in India’ ‘digital india’ and ‘smart india’,in real world development only hindutva is full swing.

    This government as no aspiration towards pro-poor.But only taking orders from Nagpur to implement Hindutva ideology in every available opportunity.

    Jai Hind

  7. @ Pincode Pai – Welcome back. I haven’t seen you in a while. I thought you finally made it to ‘IDLI-SAMBAAR’ land. Well, good to see you and your ignorant ramblings.

    @ AS Beef Mathew – Keep up with your silly drama and outrage!! Your religious bias and hatred are the ONLY reason why you hate Modiji and RSS. Yes – keep it up!!

    @ Jihaadi Shaikh – What do you mean by Blasphemy? Please don’t bring up your centuries old laws in a modern society.
