3 arrested for derogatory remarks against Muslim women

|HT|


Mumbai police have arrested three people from Haryana in connection with a chat on the Clubhouse app where derogatory and abusive remarks were made against Muslim women. Based on a complaint by a woman, the cyber cell of the Mumbai crime branch has registered a case against the three accused – identified as Akash, Jeshnav Kakkar and Yash Parashar – under sections 153(a), 295(a), 354(a), 354(d) of IPC, and section 67 of Information Technology Act 2000. Two of the accused will be produced in a local court later in the day.

"Kudos @MumbaiPolice, they have got cracking on the Clubhouse chats too and some arrests have been made. Say no to hate. #Clubhouse," Shiv Sena MP Priyanka Chaturvedi said in the tweet.

A two-minute video clip of the Clubhouse chat was shared on Twitter in which participants were heard discussing Muslim women under the topic ‘Muslim Gals are more beautiful than Hindu Gals’. They were also heard making comparisons between the Babri masjid demolition and sexual intercourse with Muslim women.
