The Rajasthan Police arrested an Ajmer dargah cleric from Hyderabad for allegedly delivering a provocative speech at the main gate of the shrine last month.

The Khadim was identified as Gohar Chishti who had allegedly given a proactive speech on the main gate of Ajmer dargah on June 17.

A few days later, the Ajmer Police had arrested Khadim Salman Chisti for releasing a video on social media threatening BJP Nupur Sharma.

The police said Gohar was wanted in the case since Ajmer Police had registered an FIR against 11 persons for delivering objectionable speech at dargah gate on June 25.

Gohar Chishti left Rajasthan on June 29 and had been on the run since then.

As per the case details, Gohar had delivered the hate speech shortly before a rally of the Muslim community against the BJP leader Nupur Sharma over her remarks on Prophet Mohammed. Gohar had called for beheading of those who insult the Prophet.

The Ajmer Police had taken an action on the persons involved in delivering the speech following the gruesome murder of Udaipur tailor Kanhaiyalal.

The police added that while delivering hate speech, the accused had raised slogans and the videos of the same were circulated on social media.

The case was registered under IPC Sections 117 (abetting commission of offence by the public or by more than 10 persons), 143 and 149 (unlawful assembly), 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant), 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation).
