In April 2022, Rajasthan Police filed two separate FIRs against News18 anchor Aman Chopra for promoting religious enmity by promoting fake news. Reportedly, he compared the demolition of a 300-year-old temple in Alwar to the partial demolition of a mosque in Jahangirpuri, while hosting a live show.
During the show he said,
Revenge of Jahangirpuri by attacking Mahadev. Please listen carefully to what I am about to say.”
Could it be a coincidence that two days ago bulldozers were used in the premises of a mosque in Jahangirpuri and today three temples in Alwar, Rajasthan were demolished. A temple was 300 years old. Was it to avenge Jahangirpuri?”
Chopra ignored the fact that the temple was demolished at the behest of the BJP-run municipal corporation in Alwar. #ArrestAmanChopra started trending on Twitter soon after the show aired. FIR registered in Bundi and Dungarpur districts for cognizable offense under section 153 (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, caste, place of birth, residence, language, etc. and doing prejudicial act prejudicial to the maintenance of harmony) Is. ), 295 (injuring or desecrating a place of worship with intent to insult any class of religion), 295-A (deliberate and malicious acts, hurting religious sentiments), 120B (punishment for criminal conspiracy), 124A (sedition) and 67 (imprisonment for non-payment of fine).
