coastaldigest.com news network

Dubai, Jan 12: A placard demanding the arrest of a provocative television journalist in Karnataka caught the attention shutterbugs during the All India Congress Committee president Rahul Gandhi’s address at the International Cricket Stadium in Dubai yesterday.

Nearly thirty thousand Indian expatriates had gathered in the stadium. Among them, a handful of people, said to be hailing from coastal Karnataka stood up and displayed a placard which read “Arrest Ajit; Boycott Suvarna News”.

Around two weeks ago Ajit Hanumakkanavar, a Kannada journalist, who appears on Suvarna News Kannada TV channel, during a debate, had unwarrantedly hurled offensive remarks against Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). The Karnataka police have registered a case against him following a flood of complaints. However, the failure of police to arrest him has irked many Muslims.

The placard holders said that they wanted to bring the issue to the notice of Rahul Gandhi, whose party is a coalition government partner in Karnataka. The photos and videos of novel protest went viral on social media.
