In the complaint, Mr Ansari addresses the dissemination of hateful rhetoric that has caused distress within the Shia community and has the potential to ignite tensions in society.

Such language not only infringes upon the fundamental rights of individuals to practice their beliefs in peace but also perpetuates the marginalization and victimization of the Shia community, Mr Ansari asserts.

He underscores the importance of holding journalists and individuals accountable for their words and actions, particularly when they contribute to the marginalization of any community.
