Lashing out at the Haryana government, the party termed the arrest as a blatant act of muzzling creative people and was done at the behest of the self-styled spiritual Guru.
"What BJP-led Haryana government has done was a continuation of the anti-people and anti-democratic values which BJP stands for.
"No religious sentiments should have been hurt in this case. Haryana government was acting at the behest of a self claimed spiritual guru who outrightly supported and publicly called upon his followers to vote for BJP in the last Assembly polls.
"Kiku Sharda apologised and the matter could very well had been laid to rest but Manohar Lal Khattar government chose to give it a turn in order to appease its supportive hardline elements," the party said in a statement.
