Hate speech: HC denies bail to Hindu Sena chief

Taking a strict view against hate-mongering in the name of religion, the Bombay High Court pointed to his hate speech while denying bail to Hindu Rashtra Sena chief Dhananjay Desai, arrested for inciting riots that led to the death of a 24 -year-old techie in Pune last year.

Mohsin Shaikh was beaten to death on the night of June 2, 2014, by a mob of 30 to 40 people, alleged to be HRS members in Hadapsar, Pune, when he was on his way home after offering the evening namaz. Police traced the rioters after they ran away leaving behind their motorbikes, which had HRS signage on them. Desai was booked for the conspiracy as he had allegedly delivered an inflammatory speech over objectionable posts on social media, which police claimed led to the rioting.
