Lucknow: A case has been registered against renowned poet Munawwar Rana for condemning blasphemous caricature published by Charlie Hebdo which had also got support from France's top leadership.

The case has been filed at the Hazratganj police station on the complaint of Inspector Deepak Pandey. Munawwar Rana has been accused of disrupting social harmony and communal peace.

Munawwar Rana had said that the caricatures are made to defame Prophet Muhammad and Islam. Such acts force people to take extreme steps as in the case of France. He further said that he too would have done the same had he been in his place.

"If anybody draws vulgar and insulting caricature of our parents, or Hindu gods, what will we do? We will kill him", Munawwar Rana said while talking to a TV channel.
