A facebook user, who had allegedly posted hate comments against Christianity, was slapped with a case after the community leaders lodged a complaint accusing him of disrupting peace and harmony.
A delegation of Christian leaders today submitted a memorandum to City Police Commissioner S Murugan and Deputy Commissioner A B Ibrahim complaining that hate comments had appeared on a newsportal facebook page and sought action against the accused.
Based on the complaint, a case was registered in Pandeshwar police station, Murugan said.
The facebook user, identified as Shriram Yadapaditthaya, praised Sadhvi Balika Saraswati who vehemently supported ‘Ghar Wapsi’ during her speech at the Hindu Samajotsava here on March 1 and allegedly criticised the Christian community in his comments on the facebook, he said.
The portal later deleted the comments from the page.
Christian leaders in their complaint said Shriram’s derogatory comments amounted to a direct attack on the Christian community.
The complaint said that the facebook user had posted a comment which was in violation of Section 144 of the IPC with the aim of disrupting peace and harmony among people.
“The person has done gross injustice to Christianity, Indian values and to Hindu religion which preaches harmony and tolerance… as the person is a threat to the peace and harmony of society and should be taken into custody immediately,” they said in the complaint.
