Tamil Nadu BJP lashed out after the arrest of a party member Kalyanaraman Rangasamy’s fiery comments on Facebook.

The post by the BJP worker allegedly had ‘hate propaganda’ against Muslims on Facebook.

The BJP’s state unit came together to defend the member, with party leaders stating that his arrest violates the Supreme Court’s order.

Tamil Nadu police are supporting Muslim fundamentalists. Why were no compensations were given when Hindu BJP members were attacked? Does the government feel that Hindus are only there to be killed and Muslim are only there to kill?

H Raja, BJP National Secretary

On January 7, BJP worker Kalyanaraman Rangasamy wrote against Islamic terrorism on his Facebook wall. In his post, he wrote,

Hide and when the time comes attack, that’s Islam’s attacking strategy. On the contrary, Hindu war strategy involved ‘Dharma’ and that was just. Nobody had taught these terrorists to think in a masculine way. These coward terrorists attacked when their opposition couldn’t defend themselves. They just follow these coward war strategies in Quran. This is what happens when you blindly follow a foolish book.

He ended his post by saying “like Sivaji, we should also talk in the enemy’s language. Only then they would understand.” He was later arrested and is now lodged in the Puzhal jail.

Speaking to The News Minute about the incident, BJP National Secretary H Raja said, “the Tamil Nadu police have become an errand boy in the hands of Muslim fundamentalist elements. When Manithaneya Makkal Katchi (MMK) MLA in Ambur created a big riot and seven women police personnel were beaten and ill-treated, they did not take any action”.

The Supreme Court struck down the provisions of IT Act on FB posts a couple of months ago. So, the police should not have arrested Kalyanarman for the Facebook post. It is a violation of the Supreme Court’s order.

K T Raghavan, BJP State Secretary & Spokesperson

Raghavan also said that there were various posts on Facebook against Hindu gods but no action was taken against them. And, it was not right to arrest K Rangasamy after Supreme Court’s judgement.

Raghavan stated that these are the reasons why there is anger among the Hindu organizations against Tamil Nadu police.
