Mendhar 18 June: Youth Led By Social Actvist Dilshad Qadri Filed Police Complain Against News18 India Anchor Amish Devgan at Mendhar Police Station for derogatory remarks against Sufi saint Hazarat Khwaja Gareeb Nawaz RA.
The anchor during a show that was aired on June 16 referred to the revered Saint Chishti as Lutera Chishti.
Later on Tuesday, Amish Devgan issued an apology on Twitter and said that he had mistakenly referred to ‘Khilji’ as ‘Chishti’, and said that he also has visted the Dargah for the saint’s blessings.
Reacting over the incident, Mendhar Youth lodged a complaint against the anchor and demanded FIR against him.
The famous Ajmer Sharif Dargah is a Sufi shrine of the revered Sufi saint Moinuddin Chishti popular as Hazrat Khwaja Ghareeb Nawaz.
The anchor’s remark caused a furor on Twitter. The netizens reacted sharply and accused Devgan of abusing a centre of faith for centuries beyond religious boundaries. #ArrestAmishDevgan has been trending on Twitter.
