The complainant said that on June 5, 2014, he had read an article in the online edition of a newspaper in which Owaisi had allegedly delivered a speech against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

He said he had found it was not the first time that the leader had delivered “hate speech and created terror and fear” in the minds of one community.

The complainant sought lodging of FIR for the alleged offences of promoting enmity between different groups on ground of religion, criminal conspiracy and intentional insult with intent to provoke with breach of peace under the IPC among other things.

      This is our so called "SECULAR" India. If you restrict someone, let other barkers like; Togdhiya, Swamis, Sadhvis, Babas, RSS & VHP leaders be tied with neck belts. Alas, it would have happened in reality!!! I don't think any body would be able to locate a single incident of State sponsored inauguaral (Bhoomi Pujan) ceremonies in this SECULAR country, without "Dharmik Rituals" of a particular faith... Is there any?

        Any leaders should stop showing the differences if they are in the position to lead or rule. Really sorry but Asaduddin Owaisi & Akbaruddin Owaisi first should stop hating other people (in their speeches as well) and maybe then they would be considered as atleast people. Putting hatred into the minds of the people following you is not the right thing to do.

            Bravo! The only Judge in India who seems to understand the magnitude of the hate speeches to what extent these can demage the society and humanity as a w but,please don't stop here and order the registration of the cases against those also who have outraged the modesty of Hindu women asking them to produce four or more children to out number the Muslims. The birth of children is an extremely private affair and sole prerogative of husband and wife, third person not even the parents can interfere. Such utterances amount to invading and violating the privacy apart from inciting communal feelings, above all these speeches denigrating the National Policies of family planning
