Kochi: Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy on Tuesday criticised the LDF government’s decision to accord sanction for formation of an Islamic banking company by the Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation (KSIDC), reports The Hindu.


According to the leading South Indian English daily, Subramanian Swami while speaking to reporters said that the proposed banking company had to follow Islamic law. The decision was “scandalous and dangerous” for the country.


He said it was regrettable that the CPI (M)-led government was promoting a particular religion.


If secularism was scrapped to favour a particular religion, it would set a dangerous trend. It would be like a separate electorate system introduced during the British rule, The Hindu quoted Swamy as saying.


He said that the decision also went against the provisions of the Banking Regulation Act 1949 because no interest could be charged under the Islamic law.


The decision also violated the guidelines of the Reserve Bank of India. He pointed out that a seven-judge bench of the Supreme Court had held that no money of the tax payers shall be used to promote an institution of a particular religion.
