MS Dhoni muddled in controversy for hurting religious sentiments



A case has been registered in a local court against Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni for allegedly "denigrating" a Hindu god and "hurting" the religious sentiments of the Hindus.

The 6th Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Choori Khan registered a case under section 295 [injuring or defiling place of worship with intent to insult the religion of any class] along with 34 of the Indian Penal Code against Dhoni on a complaint filed by social activist Jayakumar Hiremath.

In his complaint, Hiremath alleged that by posing for an advertisement in a business magazine as Lord Vishnu holding several things including a shoe in his hands, Dhoni had denigrated the Hindu god and hurt religious feelings of the Hindus.
