A first information report has been filed against Zee News editor-in-chief Sudhir Chaudhary at Kozhikode Kasaba police station in Kerala based on a complaint accusing him of spreading religious animosity and hurting sentiments of the Muslim community in connection with a programme aired on the television network on March 11.

The programme hosted by Sudhir Chaudhary on March 11 focused on different kinds of ‘jihad’, using a flow-chart describing them.

Sudhir was booked under non-bailable section 295 A of the IPC, based on a complaint by Adv P Gavas, the state joint secretary of the All India Youth Federation (AIYF), the youth wing of the CPI in Kerala.

Gavas said he decided to file the complaint against the anchor after watching a clip of the programme sent by a friend two days after it aired.
