Ram Gopal Varma asked to appear in court for 'poking fun at Lord Ganesha' on Twitter


A court in Mumbai has issued a summons to Ram Gopal Varma on a protestation recorded against the producer for “jabbing fun at Lord Ganesha” on Twitter.

The Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court in Andheri issued the summons to the movie producer a week ago, guiding him to show up before it on 8 August.

The protestation against Varma was recorded by Vivek Shetty, the overseeing executive of Indus Communications.

It claimed that the maker executive, aside from scrutinizing the capacity of Lord Ganesha to expel obstructions from the way of his enthusiasts, had some good times of the elephant god’s physical characteristics on the microblogging site.

The complainant likewise claimed that Varma’s remarks were in “awful taste” and an affront to Lord Ganesha.

“These tweets are in essence crazy and are on the substance of it, offending and impelling and opinions of individuals who rehearse, lecture and spread Hindu religion,” the protestation read.

The court had before said that amid the request, the police had discovered that the movie producer had, amid the Ganesha drenching in 2014, remarked about the elephant god on Twitter, which could have offended the religious sentiments of Hindus.

Varma was not accessible for remarks.
