Actor Ajaz Khan asks Modi, Yogi to ban Harley-Davidson

Srinagar–Actor Ajaz Khan has asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and cow vigilantes to ban global brand Harley-Davidson in India for selling products made from cow hide.

Ajaz made a video which he shared on his official fan’s page on Facebook on Saturday.

“I have stalled shooting in Kashmir and come live to share that all these people called ‘Gau Rakshaks’ (cow vigilantes) are causing harm and killing people. So many people have been killed and no one is saying anything,” Ajaz said in the over-three-minute video.

“I just bought a leather belt for Rs 8,000 from Harley Davidson. This is a cow leather belt. It’s being sold in the entire world. If you really consider yourself men, then I request Modi ji, Yogi ji and ‘Gau Rakshaks’ to shut down Harley Davidson. I am helping you and not making fun of you,” he added.

The former “Bigg Boss” contestant later criticised Modi and Adityanath.

“You want to divide citizens of the country. You want to create riots amongst Hindu and Muslims. You can’t do anything. You can just get one man beaten by 20,” he said.

“Go and shut Harley Davidson. You won’t get anything by beating poor. I have also observed the poor state of stray cows on the road. Please save them first. Don’t divide and provoke Hindus and Muslims in the country,” Ajaz added.

Mumbai court issues warrant against Sanjay Dutt

Mumbai– A local court here on Saturday issued an arrest warrant against Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt over not appearing before it in a case filed against him by film producer Shakeel Noorani back in 2013.

Noorani had filed a complain four years ago, alleging that he had received threatening calls from the underworld on behalf of Sanjay to drop a case.

The case related to a monetary dispute in which Noorani had claimed that Sanjay had committed to play the lead role in a movie titled “Jaan Ki Baazi”, but didn’t keep his word.

Now, the bailable warrant issued against the actor is because Sanjay hasn’t appeared in court.

Noorani’s lawyer Neeraj Gupta told IANS: “We had filed this matter in 2013 against Sanjay Dutt because my client was getting underworld threats to drop the case which was filed against the actor.

“We had approached police and no action was taken. So we approached the magistrate court and in 2013, Sanjay was issued the summons. At that time, he wasn’t coming to court and he was issued a warrant. But just 4-5 days later, he had to surrender in court (for another case). So that time, it got cancelled.

An official statement from Sanjay’s spokesperson read: “This case has been going on since a long time and the present situation has arisen because of the communication lapse between our lawyers and us.

“We respect the urgency shown by the honourable court regarding our attendance/representation and we would take immediate measure to rectify the situation.”
