Explore Enacting New Law to Deal Hate Speeches: Shabbir asks Govt

Hyderabad, June 7 (Maxim News): Former Minister Mohammed Ali Shabbir demanded that the State Government to explore the options of enacting a new law to deal with the rising cases of hate speeches.

Shabbir Ali, in a media statement on Tuesday, expressed serious concern over the increasing instances of hate speeches in Telangana, especially in Hyderabad. He said there should be a separate law to deal with the cases of hate speeches which must ensure immediate arrest and trial in a fast-track court. “Instances of hate speeches are on the rise as the appropriate and timely action is not being taken against those making such statements.

Some BJP and Sangh Parivar leaders have no respect for the law and they feel that they could easily get away with making derogatory remarks against religion, its practices, teachings and beliefs. For the same reasons, they commit the offence of hurting the religious sentiments of other communities repeatedly. A new law should be enacted to ensure stern punishment for such offenders,” he said.
