New Delhi, Oct 3: Delhi Police today registered a case of spreading enmity between communities against Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy for his remarks suggesting revoking of voting rights of Muslims.


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.

A complaint was filed by Asghar Khan against Swamy in this regard. The National Commission for Minorities (NCM) had in August decided to file a case against Swamy for his remarks in the article.

The Harvard-educated economic scholar, Swamy in an article in a newspaper had suggested Indian Hindus collectively respond to terror acts.

He wrote, “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.

“Others, who refuse to acknowledge this, or those foreigners who become Indian citizens by registration, can remain in India but should not have voting rights (which means they cannot be elected representatives),” Swamy had written.

Reacting to the registration of the case, Swamy said it was a “very stupid act” on the part of Delhi police because they know very well that two police stations have already declined to register the FIR and many police stations around the country have refused to do so.

“I think I should really welcome such things because it really makes people understand how difficult it is to fight corruption when the people in power indulge in corruption,” he said.

“I think they feel that I am not going to stop after getting A Raja's head or Kanimozhi's head, I am going to the root of the matter and somehow they want to stop me,” Swamy, who filed complaint in 2G scam, said. PTI
