Hans Raj Hans rubbishes allegations that he converted to Islam, says will file defamation and SC/ST act case against Kejriwal

AAP chief Kejriwal had been at the receiving end of quite a few defamation suits. last year, he had to go on a 'written apology' spree to save himself from such cases.

The BJP candidate from the North-West Delhi constituency, Hans Raj Hans, whose candidature was questioned by AAP party on the grounds of his religion has today rubbished the allegations levelled by Aam Aadmi Party and threatened its chief Arvind Kejriwal with a Defamation suit and a case under SC/ST act.

Recently, when the BJP announced Hans Raj Hans’ candidature from North West Delhi constituency, the AAP party demanded his candidature be cancelled claiming that he has converted to Islam in 2014 and thus he cannot fight from North West Delhi which is a reserved seat. AAP’s entire assertion regarding Hans’ supposed conversion to Islam was based on fake news promulgated by Pakistani media houses in 2014, which his family had already vehemently refuted.

AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal had lapped up the fake news to lash out at the BJP candidate. Kejriwal pompously tweeted that Hans’ candidature will be declared ‘ineligible’ as he is fighting from a reserved seat.

AAP had alleged that several media houses had covered the news of Hans Raj Hans converting to Islam back in 2014. However, the fact is, that in 2014, several Pakistani news portals ‘Pakistan Affairs’, ‘U News TV’ and Pakistan leaning Indian-in-name portals like Caravan had asserted that Hans, who had been studying Islamic literature for many days, developed faith in the values of Islam in the process and adopted the religion.

However, Yuvraj Hans, son of Hans Raj Hans had rubbished the reports from Pakistan of his father converting to Islam and called these speculations just a rumour.

With AAP falling over itself to discredit Hans’ candidature without verifying the authenticity of its claims regarding Hans’ religion and caste, the BJP candidate from North West Delhi has now threatened AAM chief Arvind Kejriwal with a defamation suit and SC/ST act.
