    Swamy files FIR against Sonia 'for targeting Hindus'

    Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy on Tuesday filed an FIR in New Delhi against United Progressive Alliance chairperson Sonia Gandhi and members of the National Advisory Council' (which is headed by Gandhi) 'for committing offences of propagating hate against the Hindu community by circulating for enacting as law a draft bill described as Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill, 2011.'

    In his complaint Swamy said that the 'draft bill is mischievous in content of targeting the Hindu community, malafide, unreasonable and prejudicial to public order, is apparent from the second section of explanatory note to the draft bill titled "Key Provisions of the Bill", thereby inciting crimes against the Hindu community with impunity, and thus committing offences under section 153A & B, 295A and 505(2) of the Indian Penal Code.'

    Swamy noted that when the draft bill was introduced in 2005, 'it did not find much support from any of the political parties', as they felt it 'provided sweeping powers to the central government thus undermining the authority of the state governments.'

    "But the most vocal opposition to this draft bill came from the Muslim, Christian and so called secular quarters...who demanded that the powers of managing communal violence be vested in non-government actors and make governments and administration at all levels accountable to them for communal violence," the complaint added.

    "From their (Muslims' and Christians') arguments in opposition to the draft bill, it is clear that they wanted a bill that would consider only the Christians and Muslims as the "generally targeted" victims of communal violence; and that the word 'communal violence' be re-defined in such a way that only the Muslims and Christians are treated as victims and Hindus as predators, and that the local police and administration, including the state administration, considered hand-in-glove with the perpetrators of violence," Swamy noted.

    The NAC was re-constituted in 2009 by the UPA government again under the chairmanship of Sonia Gandhi. The UPA government promptly handed over the re-drafting of the bill to the newly constituted NAC and asked it to come up with a fresh draft, Swamy added.

    Swamy, thus noted, "The object of the re-drafted bill thus was the basic premise of the NAC that the majority community -- read Hindus -- are the perpetrators of communal violence in India and the minority -- read Muslims and Christians -- are the victims, clearly is incitement of religious strife."

    "What is more important is to conclude is that in all cases of communal and targeted violence, dominant religious and linguistic group at the state level is always the perpetrator and the other the victims. Similarly the conclusion that the state machinery is invariably and always biased against the non-dominant group is a gross misstatement of the sincerity and commitment of millions of people who form state administration in the country," Swamy said.

    "This dangerous premise is the incitement of communal strife in this bill," he added.

    Swamy went on to say, "One can safely conclude that the script writers of this bill are themselves blinded with religious biases. In India communal violence happens mostly because of politico-communal reasons. In many instances, as documented by several commissions of inquiry, it is the so-called minority group that triggers the trouble. We hence need laws that can prevent such violence irrespective of whoever perpetrates it. To argue that since the administration is always biased in favour of the dominant group we need acts that are biased in favour of the non-dominant group is imprudent and puerile."

    "The present draft bill will only promote disharmony. With these kind of laws the LeTs (Lashkar-e-Tayiba) and HuJIs (Harkat-ul-Jihadi Islami) across the border need not have to promote terrorism in our territory anymore. All that they need to do is to encourage a minor communal riot and they can achieve what they want -- huge rift between the majority and minority communities," he added.

    "Hence, the NAC, with Sonia Gandhi as chairperson, and other members have jointly committed offences under IPC Sections 153A & B, 295A, and 505," Swamy concluded.

    He is a good lawyer who knows how to use law. But he is a slippery guy who keeps changing camps as fast as he changes his clothes. Anyways, we need to appreciate such people for challenging the wrong bills/laws in the court.

    Thats even better. I noticed he created lots of noise during NDA regime as well. but wasnt much active like he is today. Maybe because he didnt had so many issues or he has more personal dislike for few congress leaders. Whatever his nature is at end of the day he is serving India one way or the other.

    I like anybody who targets this scum and her two louts. if he can get them out, I'd vote him hands down. This so-called Bill not only targets mainstream Hindus but implicitly targets people of sister faith branches like us and sikhs as well. Add to that it will create more dis-unity as it will give powers to Sonia's votebank and create more divisions. Congress has learnt the game of divide and rule well from their masters the Imperialists. But now its game is getting old and it is playing its last bet.

    Never will this disunity ever happen again. Down with the Maino Mafia.

    Mr Subramanium Swamy has the alibi of having a multi-faith family.

    One things is for sure that his FIR will not be treated as a frivolous one by the court. His legal mind knows how to and where to hit. Even in 2G case, he has put many people in dock with his affidavits and he will be the one who is going to put Chidambaram in dock.

    Any good lawyer would. The law ministry isn't a social-club of gifted lawyers, it's just another union ministry with its share of employees and bureaucrats, and a minister who is almost always a lawyer himself.

    Since the time, he has become thorn in the flesh of Congress. There is a connection between Anna and the congress plan to look for the Muslim votes, especially since there is a view that muslim's dont like Anna much. Also, if Swamy is going for this, then it would only do Anna much good, if he takes it up.

    Just realized that. But he does have a good legal acumen. He was a minister of law and justice for 2 years and he is also known to argue of himself in certain cases.

    I'm not comfortable with Swami's logic that Indian Muslims shouldn't have right to vote since Hindus are being attacked in Pakistan. :s

    Can we stick to the topic?. There is another thread to discuss that issue.

    Yep and His wife is a lawyer. He is not well versed with legal minutiae, though.
    Subramaniam Swamy is a strange fellah.

    It's not strictly related to topic but it shows he's a man with certain prejudices, as jhonny has said in some other thread that when you take a stand, even a valid one, you can't escape the social and idealogical consequences.
