New Delhi, Mar 22: A special SC/ST court has been directed the police here to register an FIR against Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya for his alleged comment on Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar, here on Wednesday.
The court gave the directives following a petition filed by DR Meghwal against him for the same.
In the petition, Meghwal has mentioned that on December 26, 2017, Pandya posted a comment on his twitter account insulting Ambedkar and hurt the sentiments of the people of his community. “Which Ambedkar ??? The one who drafted a cross law and constitution or the one who spread the disease called reservation in the country,” Pandya posted on his twitter timeline.
Meghwal mentioned in his complaint that by making this comment, a hot-shot like Pandya has not only attempted to insult the constitution but has also hurt the sentiments of the people he belongs to.
"I learnt about Pandya's comment through social media in January. It appeared quite derogatory for a figure like Ambedkar and was an attempt to spread hatred and create division in the society," said Meghwal.
