Guwahati: Former Assam Minister Ataur Rahman Mazarbhuiya has filed a First Information Report (FIR) against suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma and Naveen Kumar
Jindal for allegedly ‘hurting the religious sentiments of his community.
The FIR has been registered in the Katigorah police station. The former MLA has asked the police to file a case under stringent sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against the politicians.
“These two persons have intentionally hurt the sentiments of a section of the society and firm action should be taken against them as per existing law of the nation,” Mazarbhuiya said.
BJP has suspended its national spokesperson Nupur Sharma through a notification.
Many states and Middle East countries witnessed violent clashes in the wake of the inflammatory remarks.
Sharma’s effigies were also burnt in Assam’s Cachar district several days ago. Considering the escalating situation, the state administration had imposed Section 144 of the CrPC in all districts of Barak valley.
