Meerut: A local court has fixed November 12 as the next date of hearing in a case against Samajwadi Party Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav over his remarks after the Allahabad
High Court`s verdict on the Ayodhya title suit.

The court is hearing the matter on a private complaint filed against Yadav under IPC section 153-A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion) by President of the Hindu Mahasabha`s Meerut wing Ravi Chauhan.

He has been accused of making a communally sensitive statement a day after the verdict on the Ayodhya title suit was delivered on September 30.

The SP chief had said that he was disappointed after the verdict as he felt the High Court had given priority to "faith" over legal procedures and that the Muslim community
felt "cheated" by the verdict.

The statement of Chauhan accusing Yadav of creating communal discord through his remarks was also recorded yesterday by the CJM court.
