Arundhati Roy, the Indian author is again held up in another controversial problem!
After Arundhati Roy’s controversial speech at Delhi University, a police complaint has been filed against the author.
In Delhi’s Tilak Marg Police Station, the complaint is lodged by an advocate Rajiv Kumar Ranjan. He has demanded an FIR to be registered against her and others under Sections 295A, 504, 153 and even 120B of the Indian Penal Code.
According to Times Of India, after another shocking move, Roy on December 25 had urged Indians to ‘lie’ during census over NPR or give “fake names and addresses”.
Gearing up fear among the citizens, she had told the crowd that the NPR would serve as a database for the NRC. The complaint said, “But what’s even more shocking was that Roy had said that the Modi government shouldn’t be given the remaining four years.”
Roy had remarked after a false narrative that seems to be exploitative of the current situation of anti CAA protests in the country, “Now what is NPR? NPR has happened before. In NPR, they will come to your house, they won’t ask you anything, they ask you for your name and phone number. It is a database for NRC.”
She also said a few things which can further hype the situation, she said “But we have to fight them for the next 4 years. Firstly, we should not give them four years, but we must have a plan. When they come to your house asking for your name, you give them some other name — like Ranga Billa, Kung-Fu Kutta, give your address as Seven Race Course road and let’s fix one phone number. But we need multiple subversions. We were not born to face lathis and bullets.”
