Case In UP Against Urdu Poet Munawwar Rana For Comments On France

Renowned Urdu poet Munawwar Rana is going through a police case over his current comments on the killings in France over Prophet Mohammed’s caricatures. According to the police case filed in opposition to him in Uttar Pradesh, he allegedly defended the murders in France.

The poet told NDTV his comments had been taken out of context.

The complaint has been filed by a sub-inspector at Lucknow’s Hazratganj police station. The policeman mentioned Mr Rana’s statements can result in enmity between totally different groups on the grounds of faith and lead to a disruption in public order.

The poet, in an interview to a Hindi information channel, allegedly defended the murders which have despatched shockwaves internationally.

“If someone makes such obscene cartoons about my father, about my mom then I’ll kill him. If in India somebody makes such a cartoon about any God or Goddess, or Sita and Lord Ram, which is obscene, unfortunate and objectionable, and that results in vulgarity, then I feel like I’ll kill that particular person,” Mr. Rana had purportedly mentioned.

The video clip of the 67-year-old poet’s comments was shared broadly on social media.

“My assertion was simply this that whoever made the cartoon was incorrect, whoever killed somebody was much more incorrect, this was my assertion. However what individuals make of it I can not say. My assertion was within the context that spreading this fanaticism within the identify of faith just isn’t proper,” the poet told NDTV.

In 2015, the poet had taken to tv to return his Sahitya Akademi award along with a ₹ 1 lakh prize and mentioned he would never settle for any authorities award sooner or later. Collaborating in a televised debate with other writers and politicians, Mr Rana, a preferred identify in contemporary Urdu poetry, had mentioned he had determined to return the award as a result of he was dissatisfied with the developments within the nation.

The current killings in France, that started over two weeks in the past with the beheading of a faculty instructor who had shown his students a cartoon of Prophet Mohammed for a category on free speech, has sparked outrage and rekindled the controversy on the place to attract the road on the subject of freedom of expression. The attacker was later killed by police. Three extra people had been killed the final week in a church in a knife attack in Good.

Whereas many nations together with India have strongly supported France in condemning the assaults, a number of Islamic nations like Turkey have referred to as for boycott of French products over the caricatures.
