New Delhi:

The right -wing group’s request to hold a religious rally in Roorkee has received no statement from Uttarakhand police, sparked by huge controversy over hate speech at several such events, including in Haridwar in December. Police have taken immediate precautions-including imposing a restraining order banning mass rallies and flooding the area with policemen.

Police have also registered a First Information Report against the organizers, citing a Supreme Court order to the state government to ensure no more hate speech is given.

The right -wing group had asked for permission to hold a religious rally in Roorkee on Wednesday, triggering alarm bells at the police department.

Yogesh Rawat, a senior police officer from the area said, “About 200 constables and chief constables have been deployed in the area. More than 100 Inspectors and Sub Inspectors are also there. In addition, we have deputies of five PAC (Armed Regions) companies ). Constabulary) “.

“The Supreme Court is looking into the whole thing so we can’t afford to be lenient … everything will be done through the book,” he added.

The Supreme Court, which is hearing petitions on hate speech at events in Haridwar and Burari in Delhi, has asked police to lodge a status report on the matter.

The petition mentioned that a speaker at the event in Haridwar-organized by Yati Narsinghanand-gave an open call for “genocide” of Muslims. A similar claim was made at an event in Burari in Delhi, organized by Hindu right -wing group Yuva Vahini, the petition said.

Uttarakhand police received great criticism after the Haridwar incident, given the lack of immediate action.

The petition in the Supreme Court said “no effective measures have been taken by the Police authorities”. Police, he said, had filed two FIRs against 10 people and the charges were not exhaustive.

The first arrests were made almost a month after the incident, after the intervention of the upper court.

Shortly after the event, a video surfaced in which hate propagandists openly calling for the massacre, laughing with a police officer, who they said would “side with us”, who has also drawn a lot of criticism of the state police.
