I am sending this e-mail to you as the e-mail Id of the Chief Election Commissioner of India was not available on the ECI website. I, therefore, request this to be forwarded to the CEC for taking necessary action. I was aghast this morning to see the video footage on a news channel in which BJP Member of Parliament was found to be engaged frantically in a very vitriolic communal rant against Muslims in Uttar Pradesh while addressing a poll rally. He was making very wild allegations against the Muslim community which was not only highly communal but also in contradiction of the facts. His speeches were meant to cause deep communal polarisation between the religious communities and with an eye to the vote of the majority Hindu community. The MP in question is Sakshi Maharaj and his speeches are not only in flagrant violation of the model code of conduct which forbids such utterances but also against the Supreme Court’ s ruling recently Not to use religion to woo voters. His speeches also constitute an offence under the Indian Penal Code and are fraught with dangerous consequences for social and communal harmony . I therefore request you to direct the District Collector and the Superintendent of Police of the district concerned and the Police Inspector of the jurisdiction police officer concerned to take cognizance of the criminal offences committed by the M.P and bring him to justice. I have filed this complaint to you as a public-spirited citizen of this nation whose constitutional and democratic governance is based on the fundamental principles of secularism. I also request you to warn the BJP functionaries against resorting to communal rant and polarisation for the sake of vote and power.
