The Hindu : States / Other States : Mumbai copâ€™s poem touches a raw nerve Mumbai copâ€™s poem touches a raw nerve A woman traffic inspector was at the centre of a controversy on Monday over her poem in a Mumbai police in-house journal in which she called last yearâ€™s Azad Maidan protesters â€œsnakesâ€ and â€œtraitorsâ€ and suggested that their hands should have been â€œchopped off.â€ A complaint was filed with the Stateâ€™s Home Department, the Mumbai Police Commissionerâ€™s office and the Azad Maidan police station by Ameen Mustafa Idrisi, who runs an NGO, Muslim-e-Hind, and Nazar Mohammed Siddique, one of the accused arrested in the Azad Maidan violence case who is currently out on bail. The violence occurred during a rally in the maidan in protest against attacks on Muslims. The complainants sought registration of an FIR against Commissioner Satyapal Singh, Joint Police Commissioner (Administration) Hemant Nagarale, inspector Sujata Patil who penned the verse, the publisher and other unknown â€œconspiratorsâ€ in connection with the publication of the poem in Samvad. Ms. Patil has tendered an apology in writing, saying she did not intend to hurt anybodyâ€™s religious sentiments or any religion after the poem titled â€œAzad Maidanâ€ left the Mumbai police embarrassed. â€œSujata Patil has already apologised in writing. She has said she did not intend to hurt anybodyâ€™s religious sentiments or any religion. The written unconditional apology will be published in the next edition of Samwad,â€ Mr. Nagarale said. The complainants have demanded that the guilty to be booked under Sections 295(A) (Maliciously insulting religion), 298 (uttering or putting such words which insults religion), 504 (insult to provoke breach of peace), 505 (false statement), 120(B)(criminal conspiracy) and 34 (common intention) of the IPC.
