On January 22, when the consecration of the Ram temple was taking place in Ayodhya, Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar’s daughter Suranya Aiyar had fasted for three days in protest. Not only this, he had also made controversial posts on social media regarding Ram Temple. Now the police has registered a complaint against him for this. Earlier, the RWA of the apartment where she lives had also issued a notice to her, asking her to leave the society if she did not apologise.
According to the news agency report, Supreme Court lawyer and BJP leader Ajay Aggarwal had filed a complaint at the Cyber Crime Police Station in Delhi on Saturday. Aggarwal alleged that Suranya Iyer had made objectionable comments on various social media platforms against the consecration ceremony of Ram Lalla. He said, “Suranya Iyer has posted a seriously objectionable statement on Facebook, YouTube and other social media platforms on January 20 and other dates. Please watch this entire clip and file an FIR under section 153-A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion) and other sections of IPC and other acts after watching the 36 minute video. ” On January 19, Suranya Iyer wrote on Facebook that she would fast for three days from January 22 in support of the Muslims of India and against whatever is being done in the name of Hinduism and nationalism in Ayodhya. Suranya’s post sparked controversy. The Resident Welfare Association (RWA) of Delhi’s Jangpura had written a letter to Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar and his daughter asking them to move out of the colony for disturbing peace and harmony. The letter said, “If you still think about what you have done to protest against the prestige of the Ram temple in Ayodhya, then we would suggest you to please move to some other colony. You go there where the people and RWA can turn a blind eye to this kind of hatred.”
In response to this, Suranya Iyer said in a Facebook video that the RWA in question is not associated with that colony. His father Mani Shankar Aiyar had also spoken against the inauguration of the Ram temple, saying that the absence of the four Shankaracharyas at the consecration ceremony would prove costly for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The RWA had asked the senior Congress leader to condemn his daughter’s statements.
