We are happy. 🙂
Hindu bigot and BJPÂ leader Varun Gandhi’s goose is well and truly cooked with the Uttar Pradesh government booking the rabblerouser under the stringent provisions of the National Security Act for inciting communal tensions against Muslims.
This means Varun Gandhi will have a hard time – most likely impossible – getting out of jail on Monday even if he gets bail for his arrest on charges of inciting religious hatred filed by the Pilibhit police.
Subsequently, after the violence following Varun’s arrest, the Pilibhit police filed attempt to murder and rioting charges against him.
Under the provisions of the NSA, a person can be kept in custody without bail for up to six months (i.e. until after the election is over).
Varun Gandhi is the BJP candidate for the parliamentary elections from Pilibhit.
BJP Could Benefit
While Varun Gandhi may end up the loser, the BJP could benefit in the upcoming parliamentary elections as Varun’s arrest and detention is quite a potent issue that the party could use to polarize the Hindu masses and whip their asses into a frenzy.
Although Varun Gandhi has denied making the provocative speeches that he’s accused of, India’s Election Commission has refused to accept Varun’s claims that the CDs of his speeches were doctored.
