Prashant Bhushan apologises after facing flak over Lord Krishna remarks

As a result, Bhushan issued an outright apology "I realise that my tweet on Romeo squads and Krishna was inappropriately phrased & unintentionally hurt sentiments of many ppl". He has also deleted the tweet. Uttar Pradesh Congress spokesperson Syed Zeeshan Haider at Lucknow's Hazratganj police station filed a complaint and BJP spokesperson Tajinder Pal Bagga registered a complaint against Bhushan at Tilak Marg police in Delhi.

"We all want him to be arrested as he has tried to spoil the environment with his objectionable tweet on Lord Krishna", said Fuldol Maharaj.

In a shocking statement, lawyer Prashant Bhushan has insulted Lord Krishna by calling him 'eve teaser'.

The Anti-Romeo Squads, a BJP poll promise that was among the first steps taken by Yogi Adityanath, have been controversial in the past few days as TV visuals showed young men subjected to on-the-spot penalties like tonsuring, sit-ups and other forms of humiliation.

Prashant Bhushan came up with a clarification on his tweet in which he said "my tweet on Romeo brigade being distorted".

The entire controversy had begun when one of Bhushan's follower called anti-Romeo squad as "India's tribute to Shakespeare". "Didn't intend to hurt sentiments", he added in another tweet. The logic of Romeo squad would criminalise this.

The policing squad, which was formed to check eve-teasing, has been seen by many people as a veiled attempt at moral policing.

What did he tweet on Lord Krishna?

Clarifying Bhushan's statement, Swaraj Abhiyan's spokesperson Anupam said the lawyer's tweet was a satire by which he meant that the way the anti-romeo squads were working, they could raise question over every relationship between a man and woman and with their logic, they could even term Lord Krishna as an eve-teaser.
