Bengaluru: Amulya Leona, a B.A. student, was charged with sedition after she raised pro-Pakistan slogans at a protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act in Bengaluru. While Amulya Leona’s father has described Amulya’s actions wrong, alleged Bharatiya Janata Party supporters threw stones at his house at Gullagadde near Koppa on Thursday night after she was charged for making objectionable remarks at a public programme in Bengaluru.
Amulya Leona’s father Wazi said, “They are all BJP supporters. They were in a group. I have complained to the police with the names of a few who led the group.” The incident damaged window panes and doors and took place around 7.30 pm. Three policemen have been deployed at his house since Thursday night.

Mr. Wazi, said, he condemned the statement made by his daughter and he would not make any attempts to get her bail. “Let the law take its course. I cannot approve of her statement,” he said.
He said he had cautioned his daughter against getting involved in protests. “I told her to complete studies first and later she could fight for poor people. But what she said yesterday is not acceptable. I don’t know what made her so. I hope a probe would bring out who prompted her to make such statements,” he said.
Meanwhile a video clip also went viral on Thursday night which showed a group of Bajrang Dal acitivists compelling Mr. Wazi to shout ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’. . “I have no hesitation in raising ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ slogans,” said Mr. Wazi, adding that his statement was taken forcibly. “I am a patriot. Many writers, activists and politicians have come to my place over the years,” he said.
