Ex-Kerala MLA P C George arrested for hate speech targeting Muslims

Thiruvananthapuram, 1/5: Former Kerala MLA P C George was held by the police in connection with a case regarding a communally-sensitive speech.



George had made anti-Muslim comments while speaking at Ananthapuri Hindu Maha Sammelan — an annual event that has been held in Thiruvananthapuram for the last several years — on Friday.


A case was registered against him on Saturday for spreading hate after his remarks triggered a row and an Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) youth wing leader petitioned the state police chief Anil Kant seeking action against George. The Thiruvananthapuram city police took the former MLA into custody during the early hours of Sunday.


A suo motu case has been registered against him under section 153A of IPC.
