Hate speech: CPM to approach Supreme Court against Modi

narendra-modi

NEW DELHI: The CPM is gearing up to bring the purported hate speech made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the notice of the Supreme Court. The subject would be brought up in the apex court by the advocate of CPM leader Brinda Karat.

On Tuesday, the court will resume hearing an ongoing case pertaining to the rise in incidents of hate speech across the country and Brinda Karat is part of the pending litigation. Modi's speech will be brought to the attention of the court during this time.

Although Brinda Karat had earlier lodged a complaint related to Modi's hate speech with the Mandir Marg Police Station in Delhi, the police declined to accept the complaint. It is in this context that the CPM decided to bring the matter to the notice of the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, the Election Commission has initiated action regarding the matter. It directed the Banswara Electoral Officer to produce the footage of Modi's speech. The Electoral Officer was also directed to provide the content of the speech in writing. The action comes while the opposition parties, including the Congress and the CPM, lodged complaints and intensified protests against the controversial remark.
