Chavhanke indulges in hate speech again, encourages audience to take oath for “Hindu Rashtra” with him

Says the Supreme Court pressured the Delhi Police to initiate a FIR against him

Suresh Chavhanke

On his news channel, Sudarshan News, Chavhanke frequently delivers speeches that incite hate. Apart from spreading hatred through his news channel, he also attends far right Hindutva events and sometimes even organises them to make inciteful speeches. A new video has now been doing the rounds on social media. At an event held at Nagar, Maharashtra, Suresh Chavhave delivered another anti-Muslim hate speech. In this speech, he went beyond just hate mongering, and instigated people to go against the Supreme Court by administering the oath to establishing the Hindu nation with him. Chavhanke even said that it is because of the pressure put by the Supreme Court on the Delhi Police that action is being taken against him, which he deemed to be an act of injustice. The full hate speech of Chavhanke can be read here:

The Speech

Transcript of the First video:

The video starts with Suresh Chavhanke shouting “Kon chale re kon chale? Hindu Rashtra ke liye Chale (What should we go for? Let’s go for a Hindu Rashtra).” “Arre lana hoga lana hoga, Hindu Rashtra lana hoga (We have to bring in, we have to bring in a Hindu rashtra.)”

He then speaks in Marathi and says- “Should I speak in Marathi? Pigs don’t understand Marathi, so I will speak in Hindi sometimes”

He then begins with his threats and says, “Safaed chaddar par chadhaya gaya har rupaya tumhare safaed kaffan ki vyavastha karega, savdhaan reh jao. (Every rupee offered on a white sheet will arrange for your white shroud, be careful.)”

Referring to the oath for establishing a Hindu nation in the capital of India, he says, “Pichle dino, maine Delhi mei, Hindu rashtra ki shappath li. Woh shappath, jo Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj ne 26 April, 1645 ko Raireshwar par li thi. Maine Delhi mei li. (In the last few days, I took the oath of Hindu state in Delhi. The same oath was taken by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj on April 26, 1645 on Raireshwar. I took it in Delhi.)

Chavhanke then starts with his attack on the Muslim community, and says, “Toh uske baad Delhi ke Kath-Mulle (derogatory term used for Muslims) jaage honge, Unhone kaha Suresh Chavhanke par FIR karo. Uss shappath mei humne kaha tha ki hum zarurat padhi toh balidaan denge, aur zarurat padhi toh balidaan lenge.” (So after that, the Muslims of Delhi woke up, and said that an FIR needs to be filed against Suresh Chavhanke. In the mentioned oath, we said that we will be sacrificed if the need arises, and will also make sacrifices if there is a need.)

He then again speaks in Marathi and says- “In Delhi, cases were filed against me in all civil courts. After that, cases were also was also filed in the Supreme Court. The court asked why the Delhi Police has not yet registered an FIR against Suresh Chavhanke, even after 5 months have passed?”

Attacking the Apex Court of India itself, Chavhanke says that “Kon keh raha hai? Desh ke Supreme Court mei kaha jaa raha hai. Kya Hindu Rashtra ki Shappath lena apraadh hai? (Who is saying this? This is being said in the Supreme Court of the country. Is it a crime to take the oath of establishing a Hindu state?)”

The crowd can be heard saying “no”.

Continuing with his attempt to bring down the judicial system, Chavhanke says that “Delhi police par Supreme Court dwara dabav banaya gaya. Mai aaroop laga raha hu. Mai janta hu ki judge ke khilaaf bolna kya hota hia. Lekin agar anyay karne wala kitna bhi bada ho, uske virudh bolna chahie yeh raja ne seekhaya hai. (Delhi Police was put under pressure by the Supreme Court. I know what it is to speak against a judge. But the king has taught us – however big the wrongdoer may be, we should speak against them.)”

Through these dialogues, Chavhanke has tried to establish that while the Police is on his side, the side of justice, the Supreme Court is putting pressure on them to take action against him, thus siding with injustice. He blatantly goes against the Supreme Court and makes comments against our honorable justices. 

Transcript of the Second Video

The second video begins with Chavhanke saying “Aur anyay karne wala Aurangzeb ho, sultan ho, Shaitan ho, Sarkar ho ya nayaylaya ho, anyay sehen nahi karenge. (And whether it is Aurangzeb, Sultan, Satan, government or rule, this injustice will not be tolerated.)”

With an air of impunity, Chavhanke says that “Aur mere upar FIR ho gaya. Ab police ne pehla toh report diya ki inhone jo shappat li usmei kahi par bhi Musalmaano ka naam nahi diya hai. Lekin fir bhi police ne court ke dabav mei FIR kar diya. (And an FIR has been filed against me. The police first reported that in our oath, we have not named Muslims anywhere. But still the police did it again under the pressure of the court)”. “Fir 8 mahine baad, Mr. M. K. Gandhi ka bhateeja, Tushar Gandhi- (speaks in Marathi) arre apne Gandhi, unka poota mere against SC mei gaya aur 8 mahine ho gaye Suresh Chavhanke ke against FIR hua lekin giraftaari nahi hui. Giraftaari karo. (Then 8 months later, M.K. Gandhi’s nephew, Tushar Gandhi went to the Supreme Court against me, urging that it has been 8 months since an FIR has been lodged against Suresh Chavhanke but no arrest has been made. Arrest him.)”

Continuing with his communal and divisive diatribe, Chavhanke then says, “Lekin durbhagya ki baat hai ki humare desh ke nyay tantra ne mere jese ek shiv bhakt rashtra bhakt patrakaar ke upar aisi aisi baatein ki, jiske baad humne tay kiya ki Hindu Rashtra ki shappath ek baar lene par agar apradh kehta ho, toh baar baar lenge, aur lete rahenge. (But it is unfortunate that the judicial system of our country has said such things against a Shiv worshipping patriotic journalist like me. After this, we decided that taking the oath once has been declared a crime, so we will take it again and again.)”

Chants of Har Har Mahadev could then be heard.

He then incites his audience by saying, “Aur isliye mai desh wasiyo ko bolta hu ki Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj ne jis Raireshwar Mandir mei shappath li thi, kal, 23 January ko Dophar 1 baje mai kayi Hindu bhakto ke saath Poona (Pune) jaake shappath lene wala hu. (And that is why I tell the people of the country that tomorrow, on January 23, at 1 pm, I am going to Poona (Pune) with many Hindu devotees to take the oath at the Raireshwar temple where Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj took the oath.)”

He ends by saying, “Jo aa sakte hai, who Pune jile mei Raireshwar Mandir par phunch jae, hum shappath lenge. Ek apraadh ke liye kitni baar saza doge. Arre hindu rashtra ki shappath ke liye agar fanssi bhi dene ke liye tayyar ho, toh Suresh Chavhanke har baar janam lega, Hindu Rashtra ke liye shappath lega. (Those who can come, they should come to the Raireshwar temple in Pune district, we will take an oath. How many times will you punish us for the same crime? Even if you are ready to hang me to death for taking this oath for the Hindu nation, Suresh Chavhanke will be born another time, and he will take the oath for the Hindu nation.)”

Brief of the petition filed by Tushar Gandhi in SC

On January 13, the Supreme Court had reprimanded the Delhi Police for a 5-month delay in filing a FIR in the investigation of the Hindu Yuva Vahini hate speech case. “Why do you need 5 months to record a FIR?” CJI Chandrachud had asked the Additional Solicitor General KM Nataraj, who was representing the Delhi Police.

The complaint in this case was lodged by Umar Khalid’s father Dr. SQR Illiyas, in which he had accused Sudarshan News editor Suresh Chavhanke for delivering an oath to “die for and kill” to build India a “Hindu Rashtra” or a “Hindu Nation”. The Delhi Police had filed a FIR in May 2022 even though the event had occurred in December 2021.

The bench of Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud and Justice PS Narasimha asked the Investigating Officer to record the actions undertaken in the probe within two weeks. The bench issued this directive while hearing a contempt petition filed by Tushar Gandhi alleging that the Delhi Police violated Supreme Court orders issued in the Tehseen Poonawalla case, in which the court had observed that FIRs in cases where there was a call for mob violence must be filed in a timely manner.

The complete order can be read here.
