Rapper Hard Kaur calls Adityanath ‘Orange Rapeman’, Bhagwat ‘racist murderer’, gets charged with sedition

Rapper Taran Kaur Dhillon – who is famously known as Hard Kaur – has been charged with sedition and defamation for her posts on social media against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Adityanath and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat.

According to the report in the Times of India, the complaint was filed in Varanasi by lawyer Shashank Shekhar under IPC Sections 124A (sedition), 153 (promoting enmity between different groups on ground of religion), 500 (defamation) and 505 (intent to incite), and Section 66 of the IT Act.

Navbharat Times reported that lawyer Shashank Shekhar is an RSS member.

In a Facebook post on June 18, she called Mohan Bhagwat a “racist murderer”.

“He is responsible for all terrorist attacks in India including 26/11, Pulwama attack,” she claimed. “The face of all problems in India. Constitutional casteism is a crime…You are banned by Sardar Patel ji after [Mahatma] Gandhi’s murder by [Nathuram] Godse. You are not allowed to function. In history Mahatma Buddha and Mahavir fought against the brahminical caste system. You are not a nationalist, you are a racist murderer…,” her post read.

In another post on the same day, Kaur called Adityanath “Orange rapeman”.

“If this guy was a superhero his name would be – Rapeman Yogi,” Kaur wrote sharing an image of Adityanath. “You call him when you want your sisters, mothers, daughters raped. National Hero. I personally call him #OrangeRapeMan #IndiaStandUp.”

In her third post, Kaur shared a picture of the book cover of “Who killed Karkare?” by SM Mushrif, former inspector general of police, Maharashtra. Her caption of the picture said: “RSS DID #indiastandup”.

Kaur also posted a photo of journalist Gauri Lankesh who was killed in 2017 outside her home in Bengaluru, and wrote: “I’ll never let your killers go. The world will know mam.”

The complainant, who is a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh volunteer, claimed he was deeply hurt to see such remarks on social media against Bhagwat and Adityanath, The Times of India reported.
