GUWAHATI: MP Abdul Khaleque today lodged an FIR against Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma for his speech in Morigaon where the CM termed the Gorukhuti incident as an act of revenge.
Terming the CM as Chief violator of the Constitution, Khaleque tweeted, “Assam Chief Minister has become the Chief violator of the Constitution & the rule of law. He is destroying the social fabric of Assam. I have lodged an FIR against the CM at Dispur PS for his speech in Morigaon where he termed the Gorukhuti incident as an act of revenge.”
In the FIR, the MP stated “Betraying his oath on the Constitution, the Honble Chief Moister Dr Sarrna has maliciously given a communal colour to what was supposed to be an executive exercise. The Gorukhuti eviction saw the brutal killings of Moinul Hogue and Sheikh Farid Houses of the residents of Gorukhuti were burnt to the ground By calling such horrendous acts as revenge, Sri Himanta Biswa Sarma has not only justified lt,e killings and arson committed there, the legality of which is sub-judice before the Hon'ble Gauhati High Court. but he has gone far ahead and has comnninalized the whole exercise - the target of which was the Muslim population living there.”
“The rampant human rights violations at Gorukhuti were preceded by multiple utterances of the Hon'ble Chief Minister targeted towards the particular community The hate created by the Hon'ble Chief Minister's constant denigration of the Muslim community manifested itself in the egregious acts of a civilian - a government hoed photographer - who stomped on Moinul Hogue's body while he was on his last breath, having been gunned down by the police,” the FIR further stated.
Khaleque also mentioned, “The instances of religious enmity in India are numerous and with every passing day. the incidents of communal flare ups are on the rise The Chef Minister of a state has the constitutional obligation to protect its citizens irrespective of caste, creed or religion Instead of doing so and preserving the social fabric of our beloved state, the Honble Chef Minister is aggravating the situation through his vindictive hate mongering.”
