An FIR has been registered against a local woman BJP leader at the Gandhi Park police station here for slapping a girl who was sitting with a Muslim youth in a tea shop here, police said on Saturday.

A local woman BJP leader in Aligarh, whose video of slapping a girl had gone viral a few days back has been charged under bailable sections. In the video, she is heard saying: "Don't you understand who is a Hindu and who is a Muslim".

When she was questioned by the media about her act, Varshney said that she had no problem with the Muslims, but she did not like their alleged policy of alluring Hindu girls, as reported by the DNA. "I am politely making this clear, but even then it seems that you are not getting it". The NCR against Varshney, former Aligarh Mahanagar president of BJP Mahila Morcha, has been lodged on the basis of a complaint given by the woman's father.

The police had earlier registered a case under relevant sections of the Indian penal Code (IPC) pertaining to obscenity at a public place against the youth. People told her that the Hindu girl and a Muslim man were trying to run away when someone identified them. This was after the girl's family registered a complaint against Varshney.

Describing the entire incident Varshney said that she was passing by when she saw a couple surrounded by a crowd.

She also that she was proud of what she did and would not hesitate to do the same again as she can not "tolerate" such Hindu-Muslim relationships.
