Badaun: A local court on Tuesday directed
the police to register an FIR against SP leader Mohammad Azam
Khan on the charge of sedition for his controversial comments
on Kashmir.

Chief Judicial Magistrate Pawan Pratap Singh gave the
order on an application filed by Bajrang Dal leader U Gupta on
January 3.

The court directed the police to register the FIR
under Section 124(A) (Sedition) of IPC and submit its report.

At a public meeting on December 21 here, about 250 kms
from Lucknow , Khan said that Ghulam Nabi Azad is the lone
Muslim cabinet minister in the UPA government but he is a
"Kashmiri".

"Only one Muslim minister (Azad) is there in the
(Union) Cabinet and that too not of India, but from Kashmir.
That Kashmir, which is still controversial and we don`t know
whether that is part of India or not...," Khan had said.
