Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma slammed the Leftist lobby for creating a divide between Hindus-Muslims and also accused Congress of amplifying and using it for vote bank.
While addressing a book launch event on Veer Savarkar in Guwahati, religion should not become a cause of bloodshed among people in the country rather it should be considered an academic activity to know oneself.
“Following a religion is an academic activity to know yourself and should not become a cause for blood-shed and activities against the country. Left and Liberals are responsible for bitterness between us (Hindus-Muslims). Congress amplified it for vote bank,” the CM said.
“After independence, left-liberals designed academic curricula of India in a way that produce rebels. They seek ways to eliminate the respect for State from the minds of the people,” Sarma added further.
Speaking on Veer Savarkar, the CM said that he had dreamt of a ‘New India’, advocated equal dignity for everybody, and opposed the partition of India. During the program, he gave a tremendous speech about the relevance of Savarkar in today’s time. Sarma also said that there is an urgent need to make the younger generation aware of the culture and history of India.
Uday Mahurkar, the writer of the book also took to Twitter and thanked CM Sarma for a “power-packed speech expounding on the relevance of Savarkar” in current times.
