Muslim Islamic NewsPolice complaint against LK Advani for Blaspheming

The Milli Gazette Online

12 April 2006

The following is the text of the complaint filed today with the chiefs of Gujarat and Delhi police by the Indian Christian leader and human rights activist John Dayal against Deputy Prime Minister LK Advani gfor blaspheming against Christ and hurting religious sentiments:

The Director General of Police 
Gujarat Police HQ 
Gandhinagar, Gujarat

Dear Sir,

Please treat this complaint as an FIR directed against Mr. Lal Krishna Advani, former President, Bhartiya Janata Party and Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha.

In the course of the last one week, Mr. Advani has been repeating the following blasphemy at public meetings which have been covered extensively by the electronic media. I have personally seen this coverage on at least three occasions and so have the remaining residents of Delhi who watch the English version of the NDTV news as also the other TV Channels which have also carried this. These transmissions are recorded on the master computer and can be called for by the investigating officer. The television companies will also have to be instructed to preserve this evidence for production before the court. The offensive statement runs as follows: "We have been crucified, and that too, on a Friday but we were resurrected and that too on a Sunday."

Mr. Advani is supposedly in the midst of a Rath Yatra and has deliberately made these statements during the present week which is regarded by Christians all over the world as Holy Week. It is during this week, i.e. on Thursday that the passion of Christ is recalled with reverence and on Good Friday, the death of Christ on the Cross which is known to Christians as crucifixion is commemorated with a high level of devotion. This Sunday is Easter Sunday when the resurrection of Christ which is considered to be the most sacred day of the year in the Christian calendar is observed. The two words 'crucifixion' and 'resurrection' are religious concepts used only in the Christian context and the blasphemy committed by Mr. Advani and the fact that this has occurred during the Holy Week by a prominent leader of the BJP which has been known for its anti-Christian attacks, are provocative and are directed towards inciting communal disharmony. Recently, violent reactions from the Muslim community had been provoked all over the world and in different parts of India under somewhat similar circumstances. India cannot wait until such eruptions take place here and the fact that the Christian community has restrained itself so far is no ground for the law enforcement authorities not to take action.

An offence under section 153A I.P.C. having been committed, the offence will have to be registered, the accused arrested and action according to law be taken. Please treat this as most urgent.

Yours faithfully,
