Assam Police arrested Congress MLA Aftab Uddin Mollah for making derogatory comments against Hindu Sadhus, Priests and Namghars. In a public meeting, the arrested Congress MLA said, “Sadhus are rapists. Most of the rape cases happen in temple and Namghar.”
Notably, Aftab Uddin Mollah is an MLA from Jaleswar Constituency. He was addressing a rally in Goalpara. There, he made several hateful remarks against the Hindu community and also against Hindu Sadhus. Later, a case was filed against the Congress MLA in Dispur Police Station. Based on the complaint, the Police filed a case against him under sections 295(A), 152(A)(1)(B) and 505(@) of IPC.
Yesterday night, a team of Police Officials reached MLA hostel in Guwahati and arrested the MLA.
The video with hateful comments against Hindu Sadhus is already viral in social media. In the video, the arrested Congress MLA can be heard saying, “Everyone is blaming muslims fro rape and other crimes. But, this is the era of technology. Everyone has mobile phones in their hands. In news, we see that rapes are happening inside temples and Namghars. Among rapists, Sadhus are arrested. But, everyone is putting blame on Muslims.”
However, hateful comments by Congress leaders against Hindus and Hindu Gods are not new in Assam. Few months ago, Bhupen Bora, President of Assam Pradesh Congress Committee made derogatory comments against Bhagwan Sri Krishna. He said that Sri Krishna did love jihad.
