Haridwar hate speech

In a three-day Dharma Sansad which was organized by Yati Narsinghanand from December 17 to 19 last year, various personalities spite hate openly against religious minorities with the slogan ‘shastra mev jayte’.

Narsinganand apparently called for the genocide and use of arms against Muslims while speaking at the event.

After videos of hate speeches went viral on social media, an FIR was also registered against him along with others in the case.
