Alleging cow slaughter, Karnataka BJP MLA Sharanu Salagar barges into Muslim home, booked


Karnataka BJP MLA Sharanu Salagar and his supporters have been booked for allegedly barging into a Muslim man’s home and abusing his family members claiming that they were slaughtering animals for Eid al-Adha.

On a complaint lodged Wednesday by Mehraj (27), an electrician, Salagar, MLA for Basavakalyan in Bidar district, and his followers were booked under Indian Penal Code sections 143 (unlawful assembly), 147 (rioting), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace), 506 (criminal intimidation), 448 (house trespass), 295A (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings) and 149 (every member of unlawful assembly guilty of offence committed in prosecution of common object).

The incident allegedly took place on July 1 in Basavakalyan. According to the complaint, when Mehraj was inside his house celebrating Eid, Salagar and about 15-25 supporters barged into his house screaming that they were slaughtering animals inside their house. Initially, the MLA claimed that a cow was being slaughtered.

Despite Mehraj and his neighbours trying to clear their “doubts”, the MLA allegedly continued to abuse the women of the family and threatened to teach them a lesson. “Muslims are taking all the flats and if they are allowed, they will not allow Hindus to live. They are acting too much. We will teach them a lesson,” Salagar was quoted as saying by Mehraj in his complaint.

A video of the incident went viral online.

The Basavakalyan police are yet to start the investigation.
