The allegation was that the then MP from Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath had made inflammatory speeches. In 2007, a Hindu youth was killed in an encounter in the Hindu and Muslim groups during the procession of Moharram. After the speech of then MP Adityanath, riots broke out in Gorakhpur. Adityanath was arrested in this case.
In May 2017, the Uttar Pradesh government was denied permission to take action in this case. This case has reached the Supreme Court. The court asked why the court should not prosecute Yogi Adityanath in a hearing in the Supreme Court on Monday. The Supreme Court has directed that the Uttar Pradesh government should reply in this case.
