Holy Cow! Case Booked on Sadhvi Saraswati for saying ‘Slash the Neck of Cow Slaughterers and ‘Love Jihadis’

Mangaluru: Holy Cow! She has great respect and love towards the Cows, and when someone tortures or slaughters a Cow she freaks out and curses them with words, which gets her in trouble with the law. After having such past experiences she still never keeps her mouth shut-she blasts at cow slaughterers using derogatory comments, and lands in trouble. She is Sadhvi Balika Saraswati, president of the Madhya Pradesh-based Sanathan Dharma Prachar Seva Samiti, and strong supporter of Vishwa Hindu Parishat. But recently on 27 April, 2018, when she addressed the media during a press meet held at VHP Office, Mangaluru, she was very careful in what she spoke-since the officials of Election Committee 2018 were closely monitoring her proceedings.

The Badiadka police in Kasaragod on Monday registered a case under non-bailable charges against Sadhvi on the charge of delivering a hate speech at a function organised by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad at Badiadka here on April 27. According to the police, on a complaint lodged by a resident Noufal K of Uliyathadukka in Madhur village-Kasaragod, the Badiadka police registered a case against her under Sections 153 (deliberate bid to foment communal hatred), 295-A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs), and 506-I (threat to cause death) of the Indian Penal Code. The other charges against her are wantonly giving provocation with the intention to cause rioting, and criminal intimidation.

It is learnt that the meeting was chaired by Badiadka grama panchayat president and Congress leader K.N. Gopalakrishna Bhat, who drew flak from his party workers for attending the meeting. Speaking at a ‘Virat Hindu convention’ in Badiadka , Saraswati called on youths to gift swords to their sisters so that they could slash the necks of ‘love jihadis’ who would dare to even look at them. She had also said that ‘Gau Mata’ (cows) were killed and beef party organised in Kerala, those she respected the world over. “Such slaughterers have no right to live in India…,”.

Then she went on to say: “Now I would say something which might sound bitter or wrong… You all consider cow as your mother. If your mother is standing in junction and goons are teasing her, what would you do? But in Kerala, cows are publicly slaughtered in front of your eyes… Those who slaughter cow, they should also be slaughtered in public square,” she said.

But for Sadhvi Saraswati, getting in trouble with the law with cases booked on her for hate speeches is something not new. She is no stranger to making controversial statements at public rallies. Her father was the Vidarbha convenor of the Bajrang Dal and from a young age, she has been associated with the activities of the RSS and the VHP. Last year a case was booked on her in Goa, when the preacher had said during a convention there that “beef eating is like eating mother’s meat, and therefore, such people should be hanged in a public square and when their bodies are hung publicly, no one will dare to eat beef”.

In March 2015, a case was registered under Section 153(A) against Sadhvi Balika Saraswati for allegedly disturbing communal harmony through her provocative utterances, during her speech at a Hindu Samajotsava held in Mangaluru. The Case was booked based on a complaint from Suresh Bhat Bakrabail, Dakshina Kannada District President of Komu Souharda Vedike, an organisation that professes by communal harmony. Stoking a controversy, the Sadhvi, in her speech, had said “People who eat and live in India and praise Pakistan should be hit with shoes and sent to Pakistan.” She had also said Ram Mandir would be built in Ayodhya and another one in Islamabad and Hindus would go there and offer ‘poojas and archanas’. “If anyone wants to live in India, he or she will have to say Vande Mataram,” she had said.
