Yeddyurappa flays anti-India slogans at Amnesty event

New Delhi, Aug 16 (IANS) BJP leader and former Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa on Tuesday flayed those who raised anti-national slogans at an event organised by Amnesty International’s India chapter in Bengaluru last week.

“What happened in the JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University’s Delhi campus) is being repeated here… we won’t allow such things to happen in Karnataka,” he said.

The BJP leader said he had written to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on the issue and sought necessary action.

The police had registered a case on charges of sedition, rioting, unlawful assembly and promoting enmity against Amnesty India on Monday night with regard to the event it organised in Bengaluru on August 13.

“We have booked a case of sedition and rioting under various sections of the Indian Penal Code against Amnesty on a complaint that anti-India slogans were raised,” Bengaluru Deputy Police Commissioner T.R. Suresh told IANS on Tuesday.

Asked if pressing sedition charge was excessive, he said strong action must be taken since “it’s being repeated everywhere now”.

The 90-minute event was held in Karnataka’s capital to interact with some Kashmiri families who were victims of alleged human rights violations in the strife-torn valley and to hear their struggle for justice.

Some Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarathi Parishad activists present at the event alleged that a group of Kashmiri youths raised slogans claiming atrocities by the army.

  1. Where are the stenographers who are very quick to report on links between random fistfights and ‘Bhajaranga Dala’? Didn’t they attend Amnesty event in Bengaluru? Knowing how ‘honest’ our stenographers are, I wouldn’t be surprised if they simply ignored anti-Indian slogans and focused more on ‘human rights violation in Kashmir’!!!! My cat has more self-respect than these guys!! What a country!!!
