Court orders FIR against Ashutosh, complainant had also demanded ‘mental check up’ for AAP leader

Rohini Court has ordered an FIR to be registered against controversial AAP leader Ashutosh for making inflammatory remarks in his blog in 2016 against former Prime Ministers Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Jawahar Lal Nehru.

The journalist turned politician had defended AAP Minister Sandeep Kumar, accused of rape, had referred to the reported relationships of Mahatma Gandhi and Nehru in to defend the minister who was expelled for the charges labelled against him. On Nehru, he had said, “Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru’s reported affairs with many female colleagues were juicy gossip but it didn’t spoil his political career. His relationship with Edwina Mountbatten is widely discussed. The entire world knew about it.” He wrote about Atal Bihari Vajpayee, “Atal Bihari Vajpayee was not married…  He openly lived with his college friend and society did not object even once.”

About Gandhi, he wrote in the blog, “History also witnesses to the fact that top leaders of the Congress in the 1910s were worried about Gandhiji’s relationship with Sarla Chaudhary, who was distantly related to Rabindra Nath Tagore. Gandhi Ji had confessed that Sarla was his spiritual wife. Kasturba Gandhi was very disturbed. C Rajagopalchari and other senior leaders of the party had to intervene. They persuaded, pressured, cajoled Gandhi-ji to leave Sarla. Gandhiji in his later days slept naked with his two nieces to experiment with celibacy. Pandit Nehru had told him not to do so as the country would rise against him but Gandhi-ji did not budge.” It should be kept in mind that Ashutosh wrote these lines in defence of an AAP Minister who was caught in a compromising situation with a woman in a video and was accused of rape.

Delhi Police had registered a complaint against Ashutosh for the remarks made in defence of Sandeep Kumar. The complaint filed at Jyoti Nagar Police Station had demanded that Ashutosh is sent for a “mental check-up” and a case be registered against him under an appropriate law. “Now that the debauchery of his own party leader has been exposed Ashutosh’s argument of private life and his questioning of Mahatma Gandhi’s character is a sign of his warped mindset,” complainant Subodh Jain had said in his complaint.

Members of the Aam Aadmi Party have regularly found themselves on the wrong side of the law. Earlier in February, AAP Minister Amanatullah Khan, who has a history of charges against him, was arrested by the Police in connection with the alleged assault on the Delhi Chief Secretary. Last year it was reported that the ED was likely to register fresh cases of money laundering against AAP Minister Satyendra Jain. In 2015, former Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar was arrested by the Delhi Police on charges of fraud and cheating.

Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal has himself been on an apology spree to disentangle himself from the numerous defamation cases filed against him. First, he issued an apology to Shiromani Akali Dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia, then Union Minister Nitin Gadkari and Congress leader Kapil Sibal and then Arun Jaitley.
