As per reports, a special SC/ST court has issued directions to book the 24-year-old player for a comment on Dr BR Ambedkar. The court on Wednesday directed the police to register a case against Hardik Pandya for a tweet posted on December 26. “Which Ambedkar ??? The one who drafted a cross law and constitution or the one who spread the disease called reservation in the country,” the tweet read.But as it turns out, the tweet came from an account which doesn't belong to the cricketer.
The petitioner, DR Meghwal has claimed that the comment by Hardik Pandya has insulted Dr Ambedkar and has also hurt the sentiments of the people of his community. He also added that the cricketer attempted to insult and disregard the Constitution and the architect of Constitution deliberately.
“I learnt about Pandya’s comment through social media in January. It appeared quite derogatory for a figure like Ambedkar and was an attempt to spread hatred and create division in the society,” Meghwal, an advocate by profession, was quoted.
