Bengaluru: Actor Chetan Ahimsa appeared for questioning at Basavanagudi police station on the evening of Wednesday June 16.
He was questioned for over four hours. He was summoned for questioning after a few Brahmin organisations lodged a complaint that Chethan was making derogatory comments against Brahmins. However Chetan made it clear that he is repeating what Basavanna and other social reformers said a few centuries ago.
In a statement, Chethan stated that he was questioned for 4 hours at Basavanagudi Police Station regarding his social media videos & posts opposing Brahminism. I stood by truth & democracy. I am proud to contribute in my own small way to the global movement for equality, justice, & non-violence, he added.
