Police in Karnataka has said that they had arrested a man for allegedly distributing morphed picture of the RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat in Bagalkot on Sunday.
32-year-old Khalil, who owns a footwear shop in Yadahalli village in Bilagi taluk was sent to judicial custody until 31 March after being produced before the magistrate.
This comes less than a week after Madhya Pradesh police arrested two people just because they had posted morphed image of the RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat.
Two Muslim youth, Shakir Yunus Banthia and Vasim Shaikh were arrested for sharing morphed images of Bhagwat.
While Banthia, 22 belonged to Bhikangaon village, the 21-year-old Shaikh resided in Khargone. The arrest was made on a complaint filed by one Rajnish Nimbalkar, who claimed that his religious feelings has been hurt since Bhagwat represents the Hindu community.
The image in question showed Bhagwat’s torso being attached with that of a woman wearing brown pants. The image was mocking the RSS’ decision to change from khaki shorts to brown full pants.
