The Guwahati unit of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh has filed a case against journalist turned activist Manjit Mahanta on Wednesday for provocating hatred against the people of Assam. A case no 421/17 has been registered at the Fatashil Ambari police station.
Mahanta was earlier summoned by Assam police at Fatashil Ambari PS in connection with the programme in New Delhi in which Maulana Syed Arshad Madani, the chief of Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind, fuelled controversy by stating that Assam will burn, there will be killings and retaliation if 50 lakh Muslims are left out in the ongoing Supreme Court-monitored updation of National Register of Citizens (NRC) 1951.
Mahanta was speaking outside the PS on November 17 on the issue of Madani’s statement and alleged that while cases against them for being present in programme had been swiftly registered, no action was taken against people like RSS chief Mohan Bhagawat who have been making communal statements all these years.
