Sharma mentions in his complaint that Jayalal is promoting enmity between religious groups by making such statements on social media.

In his complaint, Sharma said he watched a television debate where Jayalal was”abusing, scolding and threatening Baba Ramdev” and he was hurt since he is a “disciple” of the yoga guru.

Sharma then mentioned how Jayalal was “promoting Christian religion” through his media interviews.
