He spent about a month behind bars. He was arrested on January 15 in connection with the Haridwar hate speech case. At the time of his arrest, he was on a hunger strike at Sarvanand Ghat to register his protest against the arrest of Waseem Rizvi alias Jitendra Narayan Tyagi.

After liberation, he was received as a back-to-school hero by his supporters. It was also decorated with flowers.

Later, he went to Sarvanand Ghat to resume his protest against the arrest of Tyagi who was named in the hate speech case.

Haridwar hate speech

At a three-day Dharma Sansad hosted by Yati Narsinghanand from December 17-19 last year, various personalities openly hated religious minorities with the slogan ‘shastra mev jayte’.

Narsinganand apparently called for genocide and the use of arms against Muslims during his speech at the event.

After hate speech videos went viral on social media, an FIR was also filed against him along with others in the case.
