Fight against 'Love Jihad' if BJP comes back to power in 2021: Himanta
Senior BJP leader and Assam minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Sunday said the state government would start a "strict fight" against 'Love Jihad' if the saffron party comes to power in the 2021 assembly elections.
Election to the 126-member Assam Assembly is due in March-April next year.
The Assamese people are losing five constituencies in every assembly election to the culture-civilisation of "Ajmal's army", the North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) convenor said, targetting AIUDF chief Badruddin Ajmal.
Sarma claimed that girls are becoming victims of "Ajmal's culture-civilisation" on Facebook as boys are hiding their religion by befriending them on social media.
"We have taken an oath that if Ajmal's army touches our women, the only punishment for them will be a death sentence, nothing less. We are working with such a resolve," he said.
The BJP leader regularly targets Lok Sabha MP Badruddin Ajmal over his alleged minority politics and sympathy for illegal immigrants and attacks him over his religion.
