A student leader of Delhi University sent a legal notice to Yograj Singh, father of cricketer Yuvraj Singh for allegedly putting a highly blasphemous, inflammatory, and derogatory speech, many videos of which went viral on social media.
Advocate Satyam Singh of the Supreme Court of India sent the legal notice on behalf of Sanjeev Kumar who said that Yograj not only humiliated and defamed a community but also glorified the separatist and terrorist ideology by mentioning (Sikh leader) Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale (who campaigned for a separate state) in his public discourse.
Multiple videos of Yograj, wherein he has delivered provocative speeches amid the ongoing farmer protests, have emerged on the internet and news channels, which have gone viral on various social media platforms, read the notice.
