Acting on a local court's directive, the police registered a case against BJP MP Ram Jethmalani for his controversial remarks on Lord Ram during a function in Delhi last year. 

The court, hearing a petition filed by advocate Navin Kumar who claimed the former Union Law Minister's remarks on Lord Ram had hurt religious feelings of a particular community, had asked the Neredmet police to investigate the matter and lodge an FIR. 
 
Accordingly, a case was registered under IPC Section 295A (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs) against Jethmalani, police said. Speaking at a book launch function in New Delhi on November 8, the noted criminal lawyer had described Lord Ram as a "bad husband".

 

The Jeedimetla police here had earlier filed a separate case against the 89-year-old lawyer-politician over the same remarks.
