Police complaint filed against Vishal Dadlani over his tweet on Jain monk

A police complaint was filed against singer Vishal Dadlani for his controversial tweet on Jain monk Tarun Sagar addressing the Haryana Assembly. The complaint was made by a member of an organisation named Jain Life at the Shahadra police station in Delhi. The Haryana government had invited the Jain monk, who appeared in nude, to deliver a lecture ‘Kadve Vachan’ in the Assembly on Friday.

Jain guru Tarun Sagar is a saint of Digambar sect of Jainism, who don’t wear clothes as a part of their religious practice. However, that made Jain members angry and they have filed a police complaint against Vishal Dadlani. He deleted the tweet and tendered an apology, saying he “made a mistake by offending the peaceful Jain community”.

Delhi CM and Aam Aadmi Party Chief, Arvind Kejriwal also joined the conversation and praised the Jain monk’s preaching, claiming his family has a huge respect for the guru. Vishal Dadlani is associated with Kejriwal’s party, following the outrage, Vishal Dadlani announced that he is quitting from all active political work and affiliations.

Vishal Dadlani came under widespread attack from members of the Jain community for criticising the religious leader.
