Bhushan’s effigy burnt for ‘offensive’ tweet on Lord Krishna

Mathura (UP), Apr 3 (PTI) The effigy of lawyer-politician Prashant Bhushan was burnt in Mathura and Vrindaban today for his controversial statement with remarks on Hindu Lord Krishna.

The demonstrators also made a complaint to the police for filing a criminal case against Bhushan, Swaraj Abhiyan leader and Supreme Court lawyer.

Bhushan had yesterday stoked a controversy with certain remarks on Lord Krishna while criticising the ‘anti-Romeo’ drive in Uttar Pradesh, following which he was booked for hurting religious feelings.

The effigy was burnt at Nagar Palika crossing Vrindaban amidst chanting of slogans.

“We all want him to be arrested as he has tried to spoil environment with his objectionable tweet on Lord Krishna,” said Fuldol Maharaj.

Two applications in Vrindaban and one in Goverdhan have been given to police for filing of FIR by local Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha leaders who participated in the effigy-burning, police said.

“Romeo loved just one lady, while Krishna was a legendary Eve teaser. Would (UP CM Yogi) Adityanath have the guts to call his vigilantes Anti-Krishna squads?” Bhushan had tweeted.
