|Controversy||Peddled Fake News: In April 2022, the Rajasthan Police registered two separate FIRs against News18 anchor Aman Chopra for promoting religious animosity by peddling fake news. Reportedly, he compared the demolition of a 300-year-old temple in Alwar to the partial demolition of a mosque in Jahangirpuri while hosting a live show. During the show, he said, "The revenge of Jahangirpuri by attacking Mahadev. Please listen to me carefully what I am about to say.”
He added, "Could this be a coincidence two days ago, a bulldozer was used on the premises of a mosque in Jahangirpuri and today three temples were demolished in Rajasthan’s Alwar. One temple was 300 years old. Was it to avenge Jahangirpuri?”
Chopra ignored the fact that the temple was razed at the behest of the BJP-run municipal corporation in Alwar. Soon after the show was broadcast, #ArrestAmanChopra started trending on Twitter. The FIRs for the cognizable offence have been registered in the Bundi and Dungarpur districts under sections 153 (Promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc., and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony), 295 (Injuring or defiling place of worship with intent to insult the religion of any class), 295-A (Deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings), 120 B (Punishment of criminal conspiracy), 124 A (Sedition) and 67 (Imprisonment for non-payment of fine).
