Prashant Bhushan files complaint against Madhu Kishwar for ‘communal hate, violence inciting’

Senior lawyer Prashant Bhushan cited a Madhu Kishwar tweet on the Kathua case while filing a criminal complaint against “fake news purveyor & communal hate & violence inciting tweets of Madhu Kishwar”

Senior lawyer Prashant Bhushan on Monday filed a criminal complaint against Madhu Kishwar, “for serious offences u/s 153A, 295A & 505 of the IPC against serial fake news purveyor & communal hate & violence inciting tweets of Madhu Kishwar who thinks she can get away without accountability. Time to call her bluff.”

The complaint, filed with SHO, Tilak Marg Police Station in Delhi, accuses Kishwar of publishing “misleading and false information” through her Twitter handle @madhukishwar, “for the last several months”.

The complaint also includes Kishwar’s tweet dated April 14, 2018, in which she alleges that in the Kathua case, in which an 8-year-old Muslim nomad child was brutally raped and murdered, it was “very likely that family accused of rape have been scapegoated.”

“She has been a serial offender in this regard. A complaint should have been lodged against her earlier. There are many people who put out such tweets but we should go after the ring-leaders. She is one of the ring leaders of this gang of trolls who are involved in such communal offences,” the incensed lawyer said.
