Bengaluru: BJP national general secretary CT Ravi said that Kannada writer and rationalist K.S. Bhagawan would have been killed by now if he was a citizen of Pakistan.

Addressing presspersons Ravi said, “Throwing ink on Bhagawan’s face is not correct. But what he said was wrong. He comments are not accepted by his own family members.”

Meanwhile, the advocate who threw ink on Bhagawan’s face at the City Civil Court Complex was booked for attacking Kannada writer.

After a video clip of the attack started circulating on social media, Ms. Meera announced on Twitter that she had “taught him a lesson”. Prof. Bhagawan later filed a complaint with the Halasuru Gate police, based on which an FIR was registered against the lawyer. She was booked for wrongful restraint, assault, and criminal intimidation.

In the past, Prof. Bhagawan was provided security after he received threats to his life for his views on Hindu scriptures, notably on Lord Rama and the Bhagavad Gita, and a police case was registered against him for allegedly hurting religious sentiments.

More recently, the Public Library Book Selection Committee withdrew its recommendation to purchase writer Prof. Bhagawan’s 2018 book “Rama Mandira Eke Beda?” (Why there should be no Rama Mandira) after it was criticised by the right-wing on social media.
