The Karnataka Legislative cabinet on Monday decided to withdraw criminal cases against members of Hindutva groups, farmers and pro-Kannada activists. The decision was reportedly taken based on recommendations of a cabinet sub-committee.

Those among the list are some farmers and students, including members of the right-wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) who had barged into home minister Araga Jnanendra’s official residence in Bengaluru demanding a ban on the Popular Front of India (PFI) and its affiliates, according to the report.

Here is a list of cases withdrawn against the Hindutva activists, who made hate speeches on several occasions.

Two cases registered against Jagadish Karanth for making a hate speech at a Hindu Jana Jagariti convention in Shira and another insulting the police during a protest against ‘Love Jihad’ in Doddaballapur in 2009 and 2011 respectively have been withdrawn.
