Dimapur, July 6 (MExN): The Minority Department of the Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee has lodged a police complaint in Dimapur against a Maharashtra resident identified as Hema Choudhary on July 6.
In the complaint, filed by Ajit Gogoi, General Secretary of the NPCC Minority Department, Choudhary was charged of posting videos that are “creating hatred for Naga people.”
Gogoi alleged that Choudhary had made some videos which had “inflamed the animal lovers to go against the Naga people,” creating fear among Naga people living outside the state.
He further alleged that in her video, she has mentioned about ‘boycotting Nagaland,’ ‘threatened on cutting our neck, etc,’ which “provoked more commenters on her post that has been going viral.”
As such, the NPCC Minority Department demanded action against Choudhary for inciting “hatred for our land and people.”
The administrators of a Facebook group also updated on July 5 that FIRs have been initiated against her in Nagaland as well as Delhi. A request was also made to the DCP/SPCyber Crime Unit, New Delhi to lodge an FIR for “hurting our sentiments and threat to life over social media under various I.P.C and I.T, Act,” it added.
Bengali Samaj demands apology
The Dimapur Bengali Samaj (DBS) meanwhile demanded “unconditional apology” from Choudhary for making “unfounded allegations relating to eating of dog meat in Nagaland,” and hurting the sentiments of the people.
In a press release, DBS President KK Paul censured the woman for her ‘derogatory posts’ on social media, which were made “without being aware of the ground reality and any evidence.”
“People from Nagaland support the PFA and your pointing and accusing finger at them without verifying the current position is simply vindictive,” the release stated.
