Mangaluru: A Facebook page 'Mangalore Muslims' posted derogatory comments against veteran BJP leader Ananth Kumar after the announcement of his death was made.

The post specified not to mourn Ananth Kumar's death and made disparaging remarks about him. One of the posts stated: “Now, do not sow the seeds of hate even after death. Please don't take rebirth as you will destroy the country.” 

In another elaborate post written in Kannada, Ananth Kumar was blamed for promoting hatred among people of different castes. The admin of the group wrote that the death of BJP leader was good news.

The post was criticised not only by others, but also by Muslims. A large number of people including Muslims demanded action against the page and said, "No one should rejoice someone's death."

According to latest news, an FIR has been registered against the FB page at Mangaluru South Police Station, Karnataka. Necessary action will be taken after the probe, cops said.
