Non-bailable case filed against Facebook user who wanted all BJP voters shot dead

A Facebook user named Deepak Sankaranarayanan was slapped with a non-bailable case by the Kerala police, for a post where he called for the murder of all Indians who voted for the BJP in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

As reported by Indian Express, Deepak who is believed to be an employee of HP based in Bengaluru, wrote a Facebook post in Malayalam with reference to the Kathua rape case. In the post he wrote that “Justice should prevail, even if it involves shooting to death that 31 per cent, which is seven times the casualty of World War II, that objects to justice.”

It was a direct defamation of BJP voters (31% referring to the vote share BJP could garner in 2014 elections) and a call for genocide. He ended this segment of his hate post by pontificating about democracy.

The hate speech was soon noticed by various social media users who strongly proceeded to condemn him. Here’s one such instance:

Despite the dangerous nature of his comments, he received support from various leftists on social media:

Support for him also extended to the Kerala Finance Minister who publicly backed him in a Facebook post by claiming that Deepak’s words were twisted. He also supposedly issued a statement in his support on Twitter:

Besides getting support from leftists, Deepak was also helped by a section of the media who hid the true gravity of his statement. Hindustan Times reported as if someone was booked only for ‘blaming’ Kathua rape on BJP voters, while there was a call for murder of millions of people.

Following all this following the uproar over his comments, Deepak had issued an apology on 16 April, which though didn’t prevent a complaint against him by BJP’s state media coordinator on Thursday. Following this, the cyber cell booked him for promoting enmity among religious groups. The police has claimed that other sections would be added to his case following investigation.
