Controversial remark on Lord Krishna: Prashanth Bhushan apologises

By Ians

Lucknow, April 4: Lawyer-politician Prashant Bhushan on Tuesday apologised for his remarks on Lord Krishna in connection to his controversial tweet on anti-Romeo squads in Uttar Pradesh by the Yogi Adityanath government.

The Swaraj Abhiyan founder said that his tweet on Krishna unintentionally hurt the Hindu sentiments. He opposed the anti-Romeo squads as they violated the spirit of love and had questioned if the Uttar Pradesh government would even harass Lord Krishna, whom he termed a 'legendary eve teaser'.

Bhushan on Tuesday tweeted: "I realise that my tweet on Romeo squads and Krishna was inappropriately phrased and unintentionally hurt sentiments of many people. Apologise and delete it."

Bhushan on Sunday tweeted: "Romeo loved just one lady, while Krishna was a legendary eve teaser. Would Adityanath have the guts to call his vigilantes anti-Krishna squads?"

Following his remarks, a demonstration was held outside his residence in Noida, protests also took place in Pratapgarh, Firozabad and Hathras.

Meanwhile, a case has also been filed against Bhushan in the CJM court in Maharajganj under sections 295 A and 153 A of the Indian Penal Code. May 20 has been fixed as the date of hearing.
