Putting Mohan Bhagwat's picture on the hoarding was expensive, police filed a case

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat had recently expressed concern over the current situation in the country. He said that it has been 75 years since the country got independence, but even after such a long period of independence we are far behind from where we should have reached.

Muzaffarnagar: A case has been registered against the owner of a city-based advertising agency for allegedly using photographs of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on his hoardings in western Uttar Pradesh. UP Police shared this information with the media on Monday.


According to police station in-charge Brajendra Kumar Rawat, a case was registered against the owner of the agency, Satya Prakash Reshu, under section 505 (1) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) on Sunday. The case has been registered on the complaint of Surendra Singh, the district chief of RSS.


'Used for advertising'

According to the FIR lodged with the police after receiving a complaint from a Sangh official, Satya Prakash Reshu was accused of using the photographs of Mohan Bhagwat in the hoardings put up for his advertisements by the agency owner. In the initial investigation, this complaint was found to be true. The local police also says that the accused has been called to the police station for questioning.


He said that the complainant had asked him to remove the photographs from his hoarding, but he did not. After this compulsion had to come to the police to file a complaint. Now the police investigation is going on in this case.


It is worth noting that there are strict laws in the whole world including India regarding advertising. In such cases, it is illegal to use someone's picture or name without permission. At the same time, the accused person may have to face strict legal action regarding many things like copyright.

It is worth noting that recently, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat had expressed concern over the current situation in the country.

Earlier on Friday, he had said, 'Satyamev Jayate Nanritam. That is, only the truth wins, not the untruth. No matter how hard a lie tries, a lie never wins. Now in what respect did he say this, he did not mention it.
