Guwahati: Peasants’ body Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) has filed a case against BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Saturday for allegedly fanning communal tensions.
What irked the KMSS was Swamy’s assertion at a non-BJP programme here that “masjid is just a building and an ideal place for ‘naamaz’ but not a religious institution.” “This is a provocative statement. With assembly elections in the state round the corner, Swamy is apparently trying to trigger a riot between the Muslims and the Hindus,” KMSS president Akhil Gogoi said.
The BJP leader also drew flak from the Wakf Board, Assam and the All Minority Students Union.
The BJP leader also ruffled the feathers of political parties besides groups and organisations by asserting that people, who are opposed to the Indo-Bangladesh land swap deal, should sit at home and cry. Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi wasted no time in lashing out at Swamy. He asked the BJP leader not to play with the sentiments of the Assamese people.
Opposition Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) said Swamy had insulted the people of the state. The BJP state unit was quick to disown Swamy’s statement.
