Lucknow: A case has been filed in a Varanasi court against BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, party general secretary Amit Shah and city mayor Ram Gopal Mohale over a slogan hailing Modi.

The case was filed by a lawyer in the court of the chief judicial magistrate (CJM) and alleges the "Har har Modi, ghar ghar Modi" slogan, which likens Modi to Lord Shiva, hurt his religious sentiments.

Petitioner Manoj Dubey said this slogan was coined to garner electoral gains during the Lok Sabha election in which the Gujarat chief minister is a contestant from Varanasi.

"I had petitioned the Election Commission also on the matter but no action was taken. I have now decided to take the matter to the court," Dubey told IANS Tuesday.

The court has sought a detailed report from the police over the issue.
