Chandigarh: The Punjab and Haryana High
Court has asked social activist Swami Agnivesh to file an
affidavit informing it if he had made any remarks regarding
the Amarnath yatra.

A case was registered against Agnivesh on May 23 this
year in Hansi sub-division in Haryana for allegedly terming
Amarnath Yatra a religious deception.

Agnivesh was earlier granted bail by the Punjab and
Haryana High Court.

On August 29, the court of Sub-Divisional Magistrate in
Hansi had issued non-bailable warrants against Agvinesh
following a petition filed by right-wing activist Parveen
Tayal.

During his trip to Jammu in May this year, Agnivesh had
allegedly said he did not understand those who go for the
yatra.

"It is religious deception. I do not believe in this
type of religion," he had said.

The court here yesterday fixed December one for further
hearing in the case.
