Respected Sir,

1)Have you thought about the infamous election speech delivered by the Prime Minister of India in Banswara, Rajasthan on Sunday, 21 April 2024?

2)Are you outraged over the Prime Minister’s blatantly Islamophobic speech?

    3) Do you agree that it violates The Model Code of Conduct?

    4)Do you agree that it violates Section 123(3) of the Representation of the People Act, 1951?

    5)Do you agree that it appeals to communal feelings and constitutes a Hate Crime?

    6)Are you aware that a large number of complaints have been filed by individuals/ civil society organizations/ political parties against this speech of the P.M. with the Election Commission of India (ECI); as also the Police Commissioners in Delhi and Rajasthan amongst other places?

    7)Has the Government of India taken your opinion on this issue?  If so, what has been your stance?

    8)Since the ECI and the police department have not taken any action; and the judiciary is beyond approach during this period of election, would you like to rise to the occasion and fulfil your constitutional duty and make your own stance clear to the Prime Minister?

    9)Do you share this wisdom that with the Prime Minister’s speech and the accompanying hate campaign against the Muslim community, the social fabric of society could get ruptured paving the way for a civil disorder?

    10)Do you agree that the consequences for these developments would mean suffering on a large scale?

    The Attorney General for India, a Constitutional body, stands as a pillar of the country’s legal system. Your silence on these questions would only mean acquiescence.

    Thank you,

    Yours sincerely,

    P.S. Sahni
