India Elections : Advisory Board revokes NSA on Varun Gandhi

The advisory board of the Allahabad High Court Friday “strongly recommended immediate revocation” of the National Security Act (NSA) provisions against Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Varun Gandhi for his hate speeches against Muslims.

The decision to charge Varun under the National Security Act was taken by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister UP CM Mayawati on March 29—a decision the BJP claimed was politically motivated.

The decision to book Gandhi under NSA was taken for the alleged rioting his supporters on March 28 when he went to surrender before the Pilibhit court. Gandhi has been charged with giving communal speeches in Pilibhit and he is out on parole on the Supreme court’s order.
