Self-styled ‘rationalist’ Bairi Naresh makes sacrilegious remarks against Bhagwan Ayyappa, Vishnu, Shiva: Telangana

Telangana Police on Saturday arrested self-styled ‘atheist’ and ‘rationalist’ Bairi Naresh for making sacrilegious and derogatory remarks against Bhagwan Ayyappa and other Hindu deities.

Police arrested the Bharata Nasthika Samajam state president in Hanamkonda district following state-wide protests by Sri Ayyappa Swamy devotees. Cases were booked against Naresh at various police stations in the state on complaints by the devotees.

Hyderabad police’s cyber crime cell had also booked Naresh for making derogatory statements. Cases were booked against him under sections 153A, 295A, 208 and 505 (2) of the IPC at various police stations in the state.

At a meeting of Dalit groups in Kodangal two days ago, he had spoken ill about the birth of Sri Ayyappa and also made derogatory remarks against Bhagwan Shiva and Vishnu.

Ever since, more videos of Naresh have also come out where he is heard making objectionable remarks against Hindus. The video of his remarks had gone viral on social media triggering the protests.

There are also reports that angry devotees pounced upon Naresh and he was seen running into jail to escape public wrath. Some netizens have alleged that Naresh has close links to Telangana’s ruling BRS (earlier TRS) party as well.

Actor and BJP leader Karate Kalyani had also lodged a complaint with the police. She alleged that it has become a fashion to disgrace Hindu Gods for publicity and demanded strict action against Naresh for hurting religious sentiments.

BJP state president Bandi Sanjay slammed the ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) government and demanded action against the offender. He said that anybody can abuse Hindu Gods in Telangana and get exonerated as the Chief Minister encourages blasphemy without taking any action.

“KCR claims to be True Hindu & his Hinduvta is real BUT so far what action is taken on insults against Gods Vishnu, Shiva & Ayyappa done in Kodangal?” he said in a tweet.

Sanjay alleged that the BRS government gave security to Munawar Faruqui, who insulted goddess Seethamma, permission to others to hold meetings and make derogatory remarks on Sri Ayyappa’s birth.

BJP MLA Raja Singh also questioned the police for not taking action against Naresh even after two days after the incident.
