Hate-monger Madhu Kishwar, four others booked for spreading misinformation

Hindu nationalist activist Madhu Kishwar and four others were booked in Uttar Pradesh by the Saharanpur Police on Sunday for disturbing peace by posting a video on social media about a sensitive incident that took place in 2017.

The four other social media users have been identified as SH@KT! proud Hindu, Shudha Shukla, Raj Kamal and Anil Mansingka.

UP Police registered the case after a video went viral claiming that a Muslim person had been mowed down in Deoband town by a vehicle carrying Hindu devotees, the police said in a statement on Sunday. The video claimed that the devotees have been booked for intentionally running over the Muslim person.

While saying that the video was misleading and false, the Saharanpur Police had put out a clarification saying that the incident took place in 2017 and action had been taken in the matter.

The cops urged social media users to delete the posts.

The five Hindu nationalists have been booked in the Deoband police station under the Section 505(2) of the Indian Penal Code (publishing or circulating a rumour with intent to incite a class or community), and Section 66(D) of the Information Technology Act.

Kishwar is a vocal supporter of the prime minister and often posts anti-Muslim contents on social media.
