Haridwar hate assembly: SC asks Jitendra Tyagi to surrender, refuses to extend interim bail

The Supreme Court on Monday refused to extend the interim bail granted on medical grounds to Jitendra Tyagi in the case for making anti-Muslim hate speeches at the Haridwar Dharam Sansad or Hindu Parliament.

The Supreme Court on Monday refused to extend the interim bail granted on medical grounds to Jitendra Tyagi in the case for making anti-Muslim hate speeches at the Haridwar Dharam Sansad or Hindu Parliament.

The top court asked Tyagi to surrender by September 2.

A bench comprising Justices Ajay Rastogi and BV Nagarathna also posted the regular application for hearing on September 9.

On 17 May, the Supreme Court granted Tyagi interim bail for three months.

During the hearing Monday, the bench told Tyagi’s lawyer, “You’re on interim medical right? Surrender first. Go and surrender first”.

A Dharam Sansad or Hindu Parliament was held in Haridwar between 17 December and 19 December last year and Hindutva supremacists had called upon Hindus to buy weapons to commit genocide against Muslims in their speeches at the event.

Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati, the head priest of Ghaziabad’s Dasna Devi temple and the main organiser of the genocidal event, was arrested and was later granted bail in this case on 7 February. He had urged Hindus to pick up weapons as the “economic boycott” of Muslims will not work.
