He was accused of promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion and race in a place of worship, insulting religious feelings and creating “public nuisance”.
Iyer-Mitra was also charged with an “obscene act in a public place” and a protection of ancient monument law was invoked to charge him with misuse of the Konark temple where he recorded his video.
