The UP Police had lodged an FIR in Kakroli Police Station against Shah, accusing him of making an objectionable speech in Barwar village in Muzaffarnagar district on April 4, 2014.

Shah had allegedly said that, “If (Narendra Modi) Modi wins, ‘mulla’ Mulayam’s government will fall”.

According to the prosecution, then sub divisional magistrate of Minrapur/assistant returning officer Baburam had on the directives of EC filed a complaint against Shah under section 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of IPC and 123(3)of Representation of People Act (relating to appeal by a candidate to vote on basis of religion, race, caste, community or language).

According to the FIR, Shah had allegedly said that the SP treats Muslims as vote bank and that others would not vote for it.

              "BJP president Amit Shah gets clean chit in 2014 hate speech case" ..... It is a regular habit of pseudo-seculars to make false cases and fake allegations against BJP. Just like Kargil coffin and 2002 riots, the truth has come out.

                            When people have no ground for their defence, they lie threw their teeth and pretend be "concerned" by language even though they are the most abusive dogs.

                                lol, shameless b****d is blatantly lying, then he pretends to take the moral high ground by talking about language. What is worse - being a shameless liar, or seeing a son of a wh-re named Bijan and truthfully calling him a son of a wh-re?

                                  Congratulation to Amit Shah because of his manition tricks with Gujarat police which enabled him to get a clean chit.

                                    There is no surprise element in the news. Amit Shah is BJP president and Gujarat Police is under Gujarat govt. which is from BJP. It is very much expected that Police found no evidence in Amit Shah's case and found very substantial evidence in Hardik Patel's case since Hardik is rubbing Modi on wrong side. Truth and lies can be manufactured by police depending on the case.

                                            Not surprising he has got clean chit in many and more heinous fake encounter and crime against humanity. Not only this his political sister Maya who brunt more than 100 people alive and his political brother Bajrangi who equally convicted in crime against humanity,are roaming out of jail due to the government of their political master.
