The police have arrested Christian priest and evangelist Yelamachili Vijay Kumar alias Brother Vijay Kumar for posting inciting comments against the ‘Bharat Mata’. Borther Vijay Kumar, who hails from Ravulapalem village in East Godavari district, triggered a controversy four months back by posting rousing statements on social media. Brother Kumar posted a rhetorical question asking if Mother India had 3 crore spouses. Citing the comments as offensive, businessman Kunal Rao, a resident of Husaini Alam filed a case on the 7th of this month. Rao stated that Bother Vijay’s statements have hurt his sentiments as a proud citizen of this country. Davaleshwaram police who arrested Brother Vijay and brought him to Hyderabad have stated that the accused tried to inflame religious and national sentiments. In his defence, Brother Vijay who runs an organisation called the Christ Gospel Team clarified that a part of his speech was taken out of context. The accused further added that he is ready to apologise to whoever is offended.
