A case has been registered in a local court against Indian cricket and Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni for allegedly “denigrating” a Hindu god and “hurting” the religious sentiments of the Hindus.

The 6th Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Choori Khan registered a case under section 295 (injuring or defiling place of worship with intent to insult the religion of any class) along with 34 of the Indian Penal Code against Dhoni on a complaint filed by social activist Jayakumar Hiremath.

In his complaint, Hiremath alleged that by posing for an advertisement in a business magazine as Lord Vishnu holding several things including a shoe in his hands, Dhoni had denigrated the Hindu god and hurt religious feelings of the Hindus.

Taking cognizance of the offence and registering the case, the court posted it to May 12 for recording of the statement of the complainant.
