NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Friday expressed concern over growing incidents of hate speeches in the country and called the trend “very unfortunate.”
“Constitution talks about developing scientific temper but hate speeches are being made in the name of religion and this is tragic.” the top court said.
The top court was hearing a case seeking its intervention to stop hate speeches.
In the latest instance of alleged hate speech, BJP MP Parvesh Verma and a party MLA Nand Kishor Gurjar are under the scanner.
The BJP MP had allegedly called for a “total boycott” of a community at the event held to protest the killing of a Hindu youth in northeast Delhi.
Delhi Police had registered an FIR against the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the other organisers of the event.
In a video purportedly of the event, Verma is heard saying, “Wherever you find them, there is only one way to straighten them — total boycott. Do you agree with me?”
When asked about his remarks, the BJP MP had said, “I did not name any community. I just said those involved in the killing of Hindus need to be boycotted.”
