FIR against Subramanium Swamy for pro Hindu article

The Delhi Police on Monday registered an FIR against Janata Pary president Subramanian Swamy in connection with a newspaper article in which he suggested that that the voting rights of Indian Muslims be revoked.

The Crime Branch registered a case under Section 153A (spreading enmity between communities) of Indian Penal Code for his newspaper article in July this year, a senior police official said.

Earlier, the National Commission for Minorities (NCM) had criticised Swamy for his article.

NCM head Wajahat Habibullah had described the article as “outrageous” and as spreading “enmity and inciting hatred”.

The Harvard-educated economics scholar, in the article 'How to wipe out Islamic terror' published on July 17 in the DNA, had suggested to Indian Hindus to collectively respond to terror acts.

“We need a collective mindset as Hindus to stand against the Islamic terrorist... If any Muslim acknowledges his or her Hindu legacy, then we Hindus can accept him or her as a part of the Brihad Hindu Samaj (greater Hindu society) which is Hindustan,” Swamy wrote.
