The Mira Bhayandar Vasai Virar Police Commissionerate has declined permission for a rally organized by the ‘Hindu Jan Aakrosh Morcha’ scheduled for February 25, citing concerns over potential law and order issues. The rally was set to feature T Raja Singh, a prominent BJP MLA known for his controversial remarks.

According to reports by CJP, the police’s decision to reject the rally application is based on multiple cases against T Raja Singh for inciting communal tensions through provocative statements. The police cited six cases in Maharashtra and a total of 45 cases in other states as reasons for their refusal.

In the rejection letter, the police highlighted T Raja Singh’s history of making offensive and hateful statements during his public appearances. They expressed concerns that allowing him to speak at the rally in Mira Road Bhayander could reignite tensions between communities and pose a threat to public safety and property.

The letter also pointed out that the rally coincides with the exam period for schools and colleges, raising the possibility of academic disruptions if any law and order problems were to arise. Additionally, the police expressed doubts about their ability to control the event and manage the crowd effectively.

As a precautionary measure, the Mira Road Bhayander police issued notices under section 149 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CRPC) to the rally organizers, emphasizing the potential risks associated with holding the event.

The decision to deny permission for the rally underscores the authorities’ commitment to maintaining peace and harmony in the region, particularly during sensitive times. It also highlights the ongoing challenges faced by law enforcement agencies in balancing freedom of speech with the need to prevent hate speech and maintain public order.
