DCP PARLIAMENT STREET
PARLIAMENT STREET POLICE STATION
NEW DELHI



SUB: REGISRATION OF CASE UNDER Section 153A

Dear Sir,

                I am writing to you to draw your attention to the speech of Mr Akbaruddin Owaisi, given a few days ago. The speech is available on you tube and is being circulated on the facebook extensively.
This highly inflammatory speech made by Mr. Akbaruddin Owaisi of MIM and member of the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly was delivered on December 24, 2012 in Nirmal town of Andhra Pradesh. 
The whole speech is highly objectionable, inflammatory against the Hindu religion and against our cultural heritage. It is a strong attack on the values of our constitution, democracy and secular values. Such obnoxious speeches divide society, vitiate peace and lead to conflicts and riots.

I request you to immediately register a case against Mr Akbarudddin Owaisi under section 153 A of the IPC. I request you to take exemplary action in this very serious matter to ensure that such intolerable acts are never repeated again, anywhere by anyone and secure peace and harmony in the country.

This speech falls under this section as it has clearly causing enmity between different groups on grounds of religion and is causing a threat to communal harmony.


Yours sincerely


Shabnam Hashmi
