New Delhi: Religious leader Yati Narsinghanand — who organised an event in Haridwar last month calling for the genocide of Muslims — was arrested for objectionable statements on women, and not for hate speech at the Dharam Sansad or religious assembly, cops were quoted as saying a day after his arrest by NDTV.

Cops have issued a notice to the religious leader in the hate speech case also. The police said that Narsinghanand will be also be remanded in that case.

“Yati Narsinghanand has been arrested for derogatory comments against women, not the Haridwar hate speech case right now. He has been issued a notice in that case so far. He will be remanded for the hate speech case too, the procedure is on. We will include the hate speech case details also in the remand application,” a police officer was quoted as saying.

Sources informed that the current case against Narsinghanand — relating to misogyny — is on the basis of a complaint lodged earlier in January for his objectionable and derogatory remarks against other religions’ women. The FIR invokes charges for hate speech, in addition to charges of insulting women.

However, the arrest does not pertain to the hate speeches at Haridwar’s Dharam Sansad.
