Punjab and Haryana High Court reverses FIR against BJP’s Tajinder Bagga and poet Kumar Vishwas

On Wednesday, the Punjab and Haryana High Court overturned the FIR against Delhi’s BJP leader Tajinder Bagga in a case of alleged provocative remarks against Delhi’s CM Arvind Kejriwal.

In particular, an FIR was filed against the youth wing of the National Secretary of the Bharatiya Janata Party, Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga, after he criticized Kejriwal for his insensitive comments on the film The Kashmir Files, which is a retelling of the Kashmir genocide against Hindus.

Alongside Tajinder Bagga, FIR against former AAP leader and poet, Kumar Vishwas was also deposed. Vishwas was booked for his comments against Arvind Kejriwal.

In response to the development, Tajinder Bagga tweeted: “Satyamev Jayate, big slap on @/ArvindKejriwal’s face. The Punjab High Court reversed the FIR against me and @/DrKumarVishwas ji.”

In another tweet, Tajinder Bagga wrote that Arvind Kejriwal lost in court today and Delhi will also lose. “Kejriwal lost in court, now he will lose Delhi. @/ArvindKejriwal ji apni sarkar ki ulti ginti shuru kar dijiye,” he tweeted.

Meanwhile, Kumar Vishwas also took a jibe on Punjab CM Bhagwant man and advised him to protect Punjab’s self-respect from “dwarf eyes”.

On April 2 this year, Tajinder Bagga had revealed how Punjab Police had arrived at his home in Delhi to arrest him without implying any FIR. Punjab Police had allegedly failed to inform local police. After the arrest, Bagga was taken back to Delhi after Haryana and Delhi Police intervention.

Earlier, Punjab Police had filed an FIR against Bagga for his criticism of Arvind Kejriwal after the Delhi CM derided the film The Kashmir Files during the Delhi Assembly budget session, calling it a “Jhoothi” film. The film shows the plight of Kashmiri Hindus during the genocide that took place in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Tajinder Bagga’s statement was played by India TV during its coverage of the protest outside CM Kejriwal’s home on March 30, on which the film was played [The Kashmir Files] was a lie, I believe the 100 million Hindus will never forgive him,” Bagga said in the statement.

“In 2007 Sonia Gandhi said Bhagwan Ram did not exist,” he continued, “and today the existence of this party is in doubt.” So I would like to assure Arvind Kejriwal that the Hindus of this country will tell him where he stands. He has to apologize for what he said. If he does not apologize, the workers of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha would not let him live (Wo jab take maafi nahi manngenge hum unhe chayn se jeene nahi denge). We would continue our protests until he apologizes.”

Remarkably, what Tajinder Bagga said was a commonly used phrase and there was no threat to his life, but the gist of it was lost through repetition and translation.
