Azamgarh: VHP leader Sadhvi Prachi on Saturday defied a ban on her entry to Azamgarh district as she attended a Hindu Jagran Manch programme following which the district administration ordered a case to be lodged against her.
Hindu Jagran Manch was given permission for the programme on the condition that Sadhvi Prachi will not take part in it. Her entry to the district was banned by the authorities to maintain peace.
The VHP leader defied the ban, attended the programme and even addressed a gathering saying she did not need anyone's permission to come to the "breeding ground of terrorism", Azamgarh.
Questioning how Asaduddin Owaisi, an MP from Hyderabad, could reach the house of Mohammad Akhlaq at Dadri without anyone's permission, Sadhvi Prachi in her address said, "Is this Hindustan or Pakistan...Sadhvi Prachi does not need anyone's permission to reach the breeding ground of terrorism, Azamgarh."
She also blamed the Samajwadi Party-led government for the recent Mathura violence.
However, soon after the programme, the police took her into custody and escorted her to the district border.
Ruling SP in-charge Vipin Tada said orders have been issued to lodge a case against her and the organisers of the event and that action will be taken as per law.
