Mysuru, December 28:- Controversial writer and rationalist Prof K S Bhagawan continues to make tongue-in-cheek comments now and then which land him in trouble more often than not. He often targets Lord Rama for reasons better known to him and the latest one in his book has apparently angered many Hindu organisations.
With pro-Hindu outfits threatening to go to Bhagawan’s house and worship the photo of Rama there, two Karanataka State Reserve Police (KSRP) teams and Kuvempunagar Police are providing security to the writer to avoid untoward incidents.
As a measure of precaution, the police have arrested those who were trying to barge into his house. Police have arrested Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Yuva Morcha president Nishant who was leading the protest near Prof Bhagawan’s house.
Nishant arrived near the residence of Prof Bhagawan holding a photo of Rama when he was stopped. Pro-Hindu organisations were threatening to lay siege to his house for unsavoury comments against Rama.
Along with Nishant, the members of BJP Yuva morcha were also taken into custody. (MR/KS)
