Karnataka High Court Stays Summons Against BJP Leaders in Anti-Muslim Video Case

The Karnataka High Court has stayed the summons issued to BJP chief JP Nadda and IT cell head Amit Malviya over an alleged anti-Muslim campaign video, Muslim Mirror reported yesterday.

However, the court allowed the state police to continue their investigation against the leaders.

The case was filed following a Congress complaint about a video uploaded to BJP’s Karnataka social media handles on May 4, just days before the state elections. The video depicted Congress leader Rahul Gandhi feeding funds to a newborn bird wearing a skullcap, symbolically referring to the Muslim community.

The court agreed with the prosecution that the investigation could not be halted but ruled that the investigators should not insist on the personal presence of Nadda and Malviya. The BJP leaders had argued that national heads should not be held responsible for state unit actions.
