Muslims slam Giriraj remarks

MUMBAI JULY 26. A large number of Muslims today staged a demonstration here protesting against the senior VHP leader, Giriraj Kishore's recent remarks on the Quran and said the provisions of POTA should be applied to arrest him.

Protesters, under the aegis of the city-based Raza Academy, carried placards slamming the VHP leader for his "unwarranted and parochial remarks".

"We demand the immediate arrest of Giriraj Kishore for fanning communal passions by making statements simply for the sake of cheap publicity," a spokesman of the Academy said.

He said the organisation would file a criminal complaint with the police and the metropolitan magistrate demanding action against Mr. Kishore for spreading "communal disharmony".
