Mangaluru: Vitla Police on Friday registered an FIR against Vishnu Prasad Niddaje, an employee of Federal Bank who had called for Muslim genocide through his Facebook posts.

The FIR was registered based on a complaint filed by PFI activists at the station against the inflammatory posts of Niddaje on Facebook. Niddaje, who claimed to be the State Business Head of Federal Bank in his Facebook profile had then deleted his profile from Facebook.

While commenting on the recent controversy of the alleged imitation of Koragajja deity in Vitla during a wedding-related function had asked “Don’t you remember when the last riot happened in Gujarat?”

“Ours is Krishna philosophy. We take a thousand beatings from them and then give back one like Godhra riots which silence them for the next 20 years. I think this count is not complete in Vitla and Mangalore. They are now provoking us for doing something like that” he reportedly wrote in the FB Post.

In another post, he indirectly called for a burning car, shop, and house of the bridegroom who, according to him, had allegedly imitated Koragajja deity.

The issue was brought to the notice of Federal Bank by a Twitter user who shared screenshots of the post and the profile of Vishnu with the official handle of the bank. 

Reacting to the development, the Federal Bank responded “Federal Bank, as a responsible organization, never encourages or promotes any indecent, violent, undesirable or questionable acts on the part of our employees. We would like to make it clear that we have a zero-tolerance policy towards any such acts. We disassociate ourselves from the alleged aggressions and the same is being examined for suitable corrective measures.”
