A case has been registered against Samajwadi Party leader Saiyada Khatoon who won from the Domariyaganj assembly seat by a margin of 771 votes, polling  85,098 votes against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Raghavendra Pratap Singh’s 84,327 votes. She had lost to Singh in 2017 by a mere 171 votes and has now come back stronger.

But, even before she takes the oath as a legislator, she and 250 other unidentified people have been accused of allegedly raising "Pakistan Zindabad Islam Zindabad" slogans in Siddharthnagar district on Friday.

Circle Officer Ajay Kumar Srivastava told the media that the police took cognisance of the viral video and registered a case “against 250 unidentified people including SP MLA Saiyada Khatoon from Domariyaganj.” However, according to a report in Zeenews, the circle officer said that the police are still “verifying the viral video and identifying the people who raised slogans”. According to a report in Hindustan, the case included violation of section 144.

However Khatoon, told the media that she only reached her office late at night after receiving the election certificate and “was not at the spot” when the alleged slogans were raised. She added that this was an effort to defame her using an “edited video”. She added, “It is my priority to maintain peace and harmony in the region.”

In February, she had posted on her (as yet unverified) social media handle that “Abhimanyu Singh, in-charge of police station, Shivanagar Didai district, Siddharthnagar, is pressurizing the public to campaign and vote in favor of BJP by threatening to implicate them in the case. Even after the report of the Regional Inspector, no action has been taken against them so far.”

 

The case registered on Friday was based on a complaint made by SSI Ramakant Saroj of Domariaganj police on Thursday night, stated news reports. The complaint alleged that “slogans were being raised at the SP office on Thursday night” and that it was in breach of Section 144 which was imposed in the area. On the basis of SSI's complaint, the police registered a case under sections 143, 153 (A), 188 and 505 (2) against the unidentified SP supporters, and Syeda Khatoon on Friday.

However, it is not yet known if any case has been registered against the now ousted MLA of Domariyaganj Raghavendra Pratap Singh of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) who had claimed that if he were elected again, Muslims will wear tilaks. He is a well known serial hate offender in Uttar Pradesh.

The relentless hate mongering of BJP MLA Raghvendra Pratap Singh has led CJP to file another complaint against him before the State Election Commission (SEC) of Uttar Pradesh for delivering another speech during his election campaign. The earlier instance of hate speech was also brought to the attention of the SEC via a complaint dated February 15. Within a week of this complaint, CJP came across another video of Singh, where he was again seen addressing a crowd of voters during one of his campaigns and can be heard saying, “Any Hindu who doesn't vote for me has Miyan (slang for Muslims) blood in his veins. He's a traitor. He is a b***ard son of Jaichand. He's a h****khor son of his father...I am giving warning this time...traitors of Hindu religion will be destroyed.”

“Even after this warning of mine, if they don’t understand, I will show you what Raghvendra Singh can do. If you humiliate me I will bear it but if you betray the Hindu society, I will destroy you,” he added.
