Woman complained of police inaction against Sadhvi Vibhanand for inciting sexual violence against Muslim women

News Desk: The National Commission of Women (NCW) took cognizance of a video in Dharam Sansad in Raipur, Chhattisgarh where Sadhvi Vibhanand was seeing inciting sexual violence against Muslim women. The Commission, on February 3, issued a notice seeking an explanation of the person concerned within 48 hours.

The video was posted on Twitter by Alishan Jafri. She said that no action was taken by the police against Sadhvi Vibhanand. I could not get any meaningful response from any officer of the Chhattisgarh police on this.

She is liable to be proceeded against for promoting enmity between different groups (Section 153A IPC); intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace (Section 504 IPC); word intended to insult the modesty of a woman (Section 509 IPC); criminal intimidation (Section 506 IPC); and Section 67 of the Information Technology Act (publishing or transmitting obscene material in electronic form) if the speech was disseminated over social media.
