Conviction for Hate Harangue

Readers Pulse

Though it is too little and too late, the conviction of two Shiv Sainiks by a special court for their hate harangue in Mumbai two decades ago is welcome. It was a paradox of justice that, while one hundred persons were punished by the courts for their role in the 1993 Mumbai blasts, hardly any action was taken against those who aroused communal tension in the city by making hate speeches and writing hate articles. The Sri Krishna committee report on the Mumbai communal clashes which happened soon after Babri Masjid demolition was literally thrown into the dust bin. In a brazen case of double standards, Sanjay Dutt was convicted for possessing a gun while the then Shiv Sena MLA Madhukar Sarpotdar, who was reported to have roamed through the streets in Dadar holding his gun in hand was off the hook.
