Man Dressed Up as Lord Shiva To Protest on Streets Arrested

Free Press Journal

Yesterday, a man dressed as shiva and a woman dressed as Parvati appeared on a Royal Enfield bullet on the streets of Nagaon, Assam. He was riding a Royal Enfield bike.

They were performing a nukkad natak, highlighting the issues of the common man, like unemployment and inflation, especially against the rising fuel prices. But the idea of his didn’t go down well, as he was arrested by the police for hurting religious sentiments.

“An accused who dressed up as Lord Shiva was arrested, and will be presented in court. 2 others, suspected to be involved are yet to be nabbed,” said Manoj Rajvanshi, Sadar PS Incharge.

The actors wanted to attract eyeballs but the plan failed miserably. Organisations like Vishwa Hindu Parishad, and Bajrang Dal filed cases against the actor, accusing that the duo had portrayed the Hindu god and goddess in a ‘bad light’ and did not have the right or freedom to do so.

“We shall not tolerate an act like this. We are liberal but that doesn’t allow anyone to take advantage of it. We have nothing to say against the protest but why use our god and goddess’ name or involve and demean them,” claimed Pradip Sharma, Secretary of the Bishwa Hindu Parishad.

This incident is a remarkable example of how easily issues get politicised in our nation.
