Swamy’s anti- Muslim article: Court seeks police report

Thursday August 04, 2011 12:53:47 PM, Agencies

New Delhi: Even as the National Minority Commission contemplates legal actio against Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy for allegedly making anti-Muslim remarks in his recently published article, a Delhi court August 03 sought report from police on a lawyer’s plea for lodging a criminal case.

 

Taking note of Swamy’s article in a newspaper, ‘How to wipe out Islamic terror’, in which he suggested that conditions be imposed on the voting rights of Muslims in India, the court asked the police to file a status report on August 16. The court’s direction came following an argument by advocate R K Anand, contending that a prima facie case was made out against Swamy for his “anti-minority” article.

 

Earlier, lawyer Asghar Khan had moved the court seeking registration of a case against Swamy, alleging that his “anti-Muslim” remarks promoted strife and hatred between different communities. “The statement made by Swamy is seditious and has been made with the intention to promote enmity between different groups,” Khan said in his complaint.

 

Meanwhile, the National Minority Commission which had earlier said taking action against Swamy is consulting lawyers on the possible action that could be taken against him.
