The FIR against Kalicharan Maharaj was filed at Tikrapara police station in Raipur on a complaint by former mayor of Raipur Pramod Dubey.

On Sunday, speaking at the Dharam Sansad held at Ravan Bhata ground in Raipur, Kalicharan Maharaj alleged that “the target of Islam is to capture the nation through politics.”

In front of our eyes, they had captured in 1947 (referring to partition)…They had earlier captured Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan. They captured Bangladesh and Pakistan through politics…I salute Nathuram Godse that he killed Gandhi,” Kalicharan added.

“What is our prime duty – to save religion. We should elect a staunch Hindu king (leader) in the government irrespective of any party (he/she) belongs to…” the religious leader said.

Kalicharan has been booked under sections 505(2) [Statements creating or promoting enmity, hatred or ill will between classes] and section 294 (obscene act in any public place)of the IPC.

Arrest Hate Mongers and Stop Gatherings that Poison the Society: ANHAD

Kalicharan Maharaj’s remark at Raipur Dharam Sansad came just days after a religious assembly in Haridwar made headlines over provocative and communal speeches made by Hindu religious leaders against minority communities during the event.

Congress leader Pramod Dubey filed a complaint against Kalicharan Maharaj on December 26 and the state police registered a first information report (FIR) against the religious leader.

This is not the first time that Kalicharan has made provocative speeches.

On December 19, he made derogatory comments about Christians and Muslims at an event in Pune, prompting the police to register a case against him and five others.
