FIR Filed Against Rapper Hard Kaur For Abusive Remarks On UP CM Yogi Adityanath And RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat
On Wednesday, popular singer-rapper Taran Kaur Dhillon aka Hard Kaur was charged with sedition for her remarks against Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath and Mohan Bhagwat, chief of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. The artiste was booked under various sections of the IPC for her abusive remarks online against both of them.

The news agency ANI states that the FIR filed against the rapper was by a lawyer from Varanasi named Shashank Shekhar, under IPS Sections 124A (sedition), 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion), 500 (defamation), 505 (intent to incite) and Section 66 of the IT Act.


The official complaint comes right after Hard Kaur put up some posts on social media writing unsavoury remarks against Yogi Adityanath and Mohan Bhagwat. In her posts, Hard Kaur has held RSS responsible for all “terrorist attacks in India including 26/11 and Pulwama attack”. She has even termed RSS as a “racist party”.

Next, she posted a picture of Gauri Lankesh and wrote, "R.I.P I’LL NEVER LET YOUR KILLERS GO. THE WORLD WILL KNOW MAM #gaurilankesh #indiastandup."

Reports state that Shekhar filed the complaint against the rapper as he was deeply hurt by her comments. Accoring to Amar Ujala, a police inspector stated that the investigation was being handed over to the Crime Branch’s Surveillance Cell.
