New Delhi: BJP MP Tejasvi Surya’s exhortation to “carry again to the Hindu fold” all those that transformed over the course of India’s historical past has produced extra controversy after a sequence of divisive speeches constructed from public platforms over the previous few days. Those who left their “mom faith” have to be introduced again on precedence, the Karnataka BJP chief mentioned, calling it the “solely potential resolution” to the “anomaly”.
“The Hindu has been taken out from his mom faith. There is just one potential resolution…there is just one resolution to deal with this anomaly,” Tejasvi Surya mentioned, addressing a gathering at Sri Krishna Mutt on Saturday.
“Those individuals who have left their mom faith and have for varied socio-political, financial causes over the course of India’s historical past, those that have gone out of the Hindu fold, have to be introduced again in entire, introduced again into the Hindu religion, introduced again to the mom religion,” asserted the 31-year-old MP from Bangalore South.
Mr Surya made the comment two days after the Karnataka Right To Freedom of Religion Bill, commonly referred to as the anti-conversion Bill, was passed in the state assembly in controversial circumstances, with the Congress accusing the government of targeting minorities with the threat of tough penalties under the new law.
Last week, hate speeches including open calls for genocide made at a “Dharma Sansad” or religious conclave in Haridwar in Uttarakhand went viral. After outrage over videos of the conclave, the Uttarakhand police filed a case but named only one person along with “others”.
Surya further added that there was a time when people thought abrogation of Article 370 and construction of Ram Mandir were impossible but these are realities today.
Tejasvi Surya, who is also the national president of the BJP Yuva Morcha or youth wing, is notorious for his divisive politics and provocative statements.
