Hyderabad, July 09: Many times, BJP leaders are seen making communal comments, this time again a saffron leader made a riot spreading appeal.

Amidst ongoing tension in West Bengal’s Baduria and Basirhat districts, Bharatiya Janata Party MLA H Raja Singh added fuel to the fire by asking the Hindu community in the state to respond the way Hindus in Gujarat reacted in 2002.

“Today, Hindus are not safe in the West Bengal state. Hindus in Bengal should respond to people involved in communal violence as Hindus in Gujarat did. Otherwise, soon Bengal will turn into Bangladesh.” Singh said.

Accusing the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Government of the violence-hit states he alleged that the latter is supporting those who are spreading communalism.

“The state government is supporting those who are spreading communalism. I want to appeal to those who are secular that if you want Bengal’s Hindus to be safe and secure then you have to be more aware. If you failed to attain security in the state then you will also face the consequences like Hindus in Kashmir faced, will also be banished like Kashmiri Hindus,” he added.

On Saturday, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee ensured that she “will ask for the judicial inquiry into incidents at Baduria and Basirhat area.

“For over a month there has been unrest in the hills and the centre is not even cooperating to maintain law and order in Darjeeling,” she expressed.

Violent clashes erupted in Basirhat area of the district after a Class X student updated a controversial picture on Facebook.

The boy was later detained by police, but the violence hasn’t abated.

The fresh tension was reported in Basirhat area days after too forcing the police to lob teargas shells and resort to baton charge even as the state government decided to ban some organisations for allegedly instigating people.

The violence is rising in the state due to these communal remarks and statements which are made by the leaders who are spreading these communal ideologies.
