Hindutva leader made offensive remark on Quran - DOTO

Hindutva leader made offensive remark on Quran

Amid unrest in the country following Nupur Sharma’s remarks on Prophet Muhammad, and the killings of two who allegedly stood in support of the now sacked BJP spokesperson, offensive remarks on the holy Quran were made, at a protest organised by a Hindutva unit affiliated to the Hindu Jagaran Vedike. The event was held in the Kolar district in Karnataka. Addressing the public, the leader, Keshav Murthi, referred to the recent Udaipur murder where a tailor, Kanhaiyalal, was hacked to death by two Muslim men allegedly after the victim came out in support of Nupur Sharma on social media. “Quran is a criminal book. It orders killing people by stoning and beheading. All of them who read the Quran have become terrorists,” alleged Murthi.
