Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya to be booked over tweet on Ambedkar


Indian cricketer Hardik Pandya puts himself in trouble with a tweet on Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar. A special court on Wednesday ordered the police to register a case against Pandya. There is a petition filed by DR Meghwal against cricketer. He claimed that Pandya’s tweet insulted Dr. Ambedkar, the architect of the constitution and his efforts for the country. Pandya’s comments also hurt the sentiments of the people.

It was a tweet from December 26 in which Hardik Pandya had tweeted, “Which Ambedkar ??? The one who drafted a cross law and constitution or the one who spread the disease called reservation in the country.”

It appeared quite derogatory for a figure like Ambedkar and was an attempt to spread hatred and create division in the society”.
