Moosewala should be booked under sedition

Chandigarh (Gurpreet) Highcourt advocate Hari chand has demanded that sedition case be registered against Moosewala. He has written to the DGP, Punjab that he has come across a press note issued today by ADGP Crime, Punjab, disclosing therein that a criminal case has been registered against Sh. Sidhu Moosewala under Sections 188/294/504/120-B IPC at Police Station State Crime, Punjab, Phase-IV, Mohali. The detailed reasons have been stated in the press note explaining as to why the aforesaid FIR has been registered against Sh. Sidhu Moosewala. In this regard, I have to submit that as the crime committed by Sh. Sidhu Moosewala by glorifying/ flaunting weapons and by exhorting/instigating the youth to take weapons in their hands and commit  crime under the Arms Act, like Sanjay Dutt, and be real He-Men (mard), is a very serious crime. He is required to be proceeded against under Section 124-A of the Indian Penal Code for sedition. He has tried to show contempt for the Government established by law, and also Judiciary established by law in India. His conduct deserves to be taken very seriously.           I may add this stage that the Sections of Indian Penal Code namely Section 188 (Disobedience to order duly promulgated by Public Servant); Section 294 (Obscene acts and songs); and (iii) Section 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) are hardly attracted to the case of Sh. Sidhu Moosewala. He is bound to be acquitted by Court of Law, as the aforesaid Sections of Indian Penal Code are not applicable to the offence committed by him. Thus, by registering a very weak case under irrelevant provisions of law, the Punjab Police would be ensuring the acquittal of Sh. Sidhu Moosewala. He is likely to be acquitted in the FIR previously registered against him at Sadar Police Station, Mansa on my complaint.           As Sidhu Moosewala flaunted weapons in the   video of his song, he is liable to be prosecuted under various provisions of the Arms Act. In addition, he is liable to be prosecuted under provisions of Section 124-A of the Indian Penal Code (Sedition), in case the Punjab Police has serious intention to force rule of law in the State of Punjab. In addition, Punjab Police may also apply to the Advocate General Punjab for seeking permission for filing a Criminal Contempt Petition against Sh. Sidhu Moosewala in the Hon’ble Court, as the wording of the song sung by Sh. Sidhu Moosewala (“Sanjay”) undermines the judiciary also, as has been admitted by the Punjab Police in its press note released today.
