A case has been registered against Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Sharan Pumpwell over a social media post after the Namaz video went viral.


In his post, Sharan warned that if Namaz is performed again at the same place, Bajrang Dal will directly intervene and stop it.

The post was made in a manner that incited hatred among people, threatened to take the law into one’s own hands, and created fear in society. Due to the possibility of communal harmony being disrupted in Mangaluru city, a case has been registered, stated Police Commissioner Anupam Agarwal.
