Dharma Sansad : Supreme Court lawyers have written a letter to Chief Justice NV Ramana in the case of hate speech in Hari Dwar, Uttarakhand. The lawyers have appealed to the Chief Justice to take suo motu notice of the hate speech. In the meeting of Sadhu saints held in Haridwar from December 17 to 19, speeches were continuously made against the constitutional values and sectarian harmony of the country. There was even talk of taking up arms against minorities. Surprisingly, those who organized the Dharma Sansad in Hari Dwar and made hate speeches say that they did nothing wrong.
In a letter to the Chief Justice, the senior lawyers said that in the absence of police action, immediate judicial intervention was necessary. According to the letter, not only hate speeches were made in the Dharma Sansad held in Delhi and Haridwar but also an open call for genocide of a particular community. The letter from the lawyers said that this was not only a serious threat to the unity and integrity of India but also a matter of endangering the lives of millions of Muslim citizens.
