Complaint Filed In Delhi Over Mamata Banerjee Jihad Statement Against Bjp
hear the news
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had said during a public meeting on June 28 that she would wage jihad against the BJP from July 21. His statement was widely criticized and West Bengal BJP strongly opposed it. Now on the same statement, a complaint has been lodged against Mamta Banerjee in the cyber police station in Delhi. In the complaint, Mamata Banerjee has been accused of instigating TMC workers to kill BJP workers. A Public Interest Litigation has also been filed in the Calcutta High Court on this matter.
The complainant Archana Agnihotri has alleged that the word jihad is used by people of a particular religion to pursue their ideology in a violent manner. Mamta Banerjee is the Chief Minister of a state and the President of Trinamool Congress Party. He has lakhs of workers and huge fans. It is alleged that the way Mamata Banerjee has spoken of waging jihad against the BJP, the threat to the lives of BJP workers in West Bengal may increase.
This becomes all the more serious in the context that West Bengal has a long history of violent politics and several BJP workers have been politically murdered even after the state assembly elections held sometime back. It is alleged that after this appeal of the Chief Minister, violence can erupt in the state and people’s lives may be in danger.
the complainant said
Archana Agnihotri, who complained against Mamta Banerjee, told Amar Ujala that India is a peace loving democratic country. Here no one class can be allowed to commit violence against another. It is also not expected from a leader to make such a statement which incites violence in the society. But the way Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has directly spoken of waging Jihad against BJP, it is a conspiracy to incite people of one sect against another sect and it cannot be accepted at any cost.
He said that in a democratic system, people have the right to choose or reject any political party on the basis of their choice. But the talk of waging Jihad against another party only because of political differences is a violent ideology which cannot be accepted in India.
What did Mamta say
Addressing a public meeting in West Bengal’s Bardhaman, Mamata Banerjee had talked about waging jihad against the BJP from July 21. On July 21, All India Trinamool Congress observes Martyrs’ Day to remember the killings of Congress workers during the Left rule. On this day the party organizes a big public meeting in Dharmatala. Mamta had talked about starting jihad against the BJP from this meeting.
After this statement of Mamta Banerjee, the Governor of the state Jagdeep Dhankhar issued a press statement calling it unfortunate. He had also spoken of calling the Chief Secretary and withdrawing this statement of the Chief Minister. West Bengal BJP leader Shubhendu Adhikari had met the Governor after Mamata’s statement and demanded imposition of President’s rule in the state. However, after the controversy escalated, Mamta Banerjee had said that this statement was being misinterpreted.
