Kochi: The BJP has filed a police complaint against Kerala Speaker A N Shamseer accusing him of hurting religious beliefs of Hindus, media reports said.
The Vishwa Hindu Parishad is planning to lodge complaints against him at all the police stations in the state. They are also planning to approach the President and Kerala Governor seeking his removal from the post, the reports said.
The Speaker insulted Hindu beliefs to promote rationality, the complaint filed by BJP’s Thiruvananthapuram district vice-president R S Rajeev before Thiruvananthapuram City Police Commissioner said.
It said that his statements violated the oath of office and went against the Constitution of the country.
The complainant claimed that the alleged remarks became more controversial as they were made before students at the Government Higher Secondary School, Kunnathunadu, in Ernakulam district, on July 21.
The Speaker had accused the Centre of trying to teach children Hindu myths instead of achievements in science and technology, the reports said.
The complaint said that Shamseer was a strong believer in the Islamic faith and had made a conscious attempt to insult Hindu beliefs, create religious hatred, and promote enmity between followers of different faiths.
