Narsinghanand of Dasna Devi Mandir booked for speech against Mohammed

Narsinghanand had reportedly said that Muslims would be ashamed of their religion if they were told the true story of the prophet

Delhi Police on 3 April registered a first information report (FIR) against Mahant Swami Yati Narasimhanand Saraswati of Dasna Devi Temple in Ghaziabad for his comments against Prophet Mohammed. He had reportedly said that Muslims would be ashamed of their religion if they were told the true story of the prophet. The swami had made the comment at an event at the Delhi Press Club.

Narsinghanand called Prophet Mohammed a rapist, dacoit and pimp. Listen in:

The FIR was registered at the Parliament Street Police Station under Indian Penal Code (IPC) Sections 153(A) and 295(A).

The video of Narsinghanand commenting against Prophet Mohammed surfaced on social media platforms and soon went viral. The police took cognisance of the incident and registered the FIR.

After the video surfaced, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Amanatullah Khan demanded strict against the Swami Yati Narasimhanand Saraswati. He registered a complaint against the priest at the Jamia Nagar Police Station.

The AAP MLA tweeted thereafter:

Khan in another tweet, said, “We cannot tolerate the insult of our prophet. His tongue should be severed and then he must be beheaded as punishment. But the law of India does not allow us to do this; we have faith in the constitution of the country, and I want Delhi Police to take cognisance of it.”

AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi condemned the remarks too. He tweeted, “Insulting Prophet (SAW) is unacceptable. Can these criminals acting as religious teachers get over their unnatural fixation with Islam? For something that you do not like, you do spend a lot of time on it. I’m sure there’s enough in your own belief system that you can discuss 1/2”

In his next tweet, Owaisi said, “@DelhiPolice this man is insulting Islam for the sole purpose of provoking violence against Muslims & your maun vrat is embarrassing. If you’ve forgotten your jobs, we can do a refresher course. 2/2”

Notably, the video of the event surfaced on social media on 2 April. The swami asked for donations and called upon Hindus to stand against Muslims.

But Narsinghanand found support of many Hindus on social media. Two examples:


Last month, the swami’s name had cropped up in connection with an incident where a sevak of the Dasna Devi Mandir hit a Muslim man when he tried to enter the temple. Narsinghanand had found a lot of Hindu support even back then. Look at the number of likes this Facebook post has got:
