It is worth noting that the case has not yet been registered against Swami Prabodhanand Giri, Sadhvi Annapurna alias Pooja Shakun Pandey and Swami Anandaswaroop, who called for the massacre of Muslims in the Parliament of Religions.
The Dharma Sansad was organized by radical Hindutva leader Yeti Narasimhanand Giri (formerly Saraswati), who is known for making provocative statements. His name is also not in the FIR.
In a video that went viral about the event, Narasimhanand can be heard saying that if Hindu youths become like LTTE leaders ‘Prabhakaran’ or ‘Bhindranwale’, they will be given Rs 1 crore.
“When we needed help, the Hindu community did not help us. But if a young worker is ready to become a Hindu Prabhakaran, I will give him Rs 1 crore before anyone else.
In a statement to The Hindu, DGP Ashok Kumar said that the police had received a complaint based on which an FIR was registered under IPC section 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion). .
Earlier, a senior Trinamool Congress leader had on Thursday demanded immediate action against the organizers and speakers of the recently held Dharma Sansad in Haridwar.
Trinamool Congress national spokesperson Saket Gokhale had filed a complaint in this regard at Jwalpur police station in Haridwar district of Uttarakhand and asked the station in-charge to register an FIR within 24 hours.
I’ve filed a complaint with SHO, Jwalapur PS in Haridwar against the #HaridwarHateAssembly conducted from 17th-20th December at Ved Niketan Dham.
Failing the registration of an FIR against the organizers & speakers in 24 hrs, a plaint shall be made to the Judicial Magistrate. https://t.co/hnUdNiurve pic.twitter.com/Xgv6FCu3ZM

The event was also attended by BJP leader Ashwini Upadhyay, who was arrested sometime back at Jantar Mantar for making provocative statements against Muslims. BJP Mahila Morcha leader Udita Tyagi also participated in this controversial program, which shows that the ruling party is giving support to such people.
