Hate Speech: Yet Another Case Against Sasikala


Kozhikode: Police have registered yet another case against firebrand Hindu Aikya Vedi leader K.P. Sasikala, who had courted a controversy for her hate speech in the city more than 10 years ago.

Kasaba police registered the case against Sasikala for her alleged hate speech at Muthalakkulam Maidan here in 2006 linking Maradu violence that claimed eight lives in communal clashes at predominantly fishermen dominated Maradu beach on May 2, 2003.

The other case was filed on the complaints lodged by senior Congress leader V.D. Satheesan, MLA and pro-CPI-M) Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) against speech delivered at North Paravoor two days ago.

In her speech at a public function, she had warned secular writers of the same fate as the slain journalist Gauri Lankesh, who was shot dead in Bengaluru recently, and advised them to perform Mrithyunjaya Homam (puja for long life) at any Siva temple nearby to save their lives.
