BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Saturday said he had spoken to SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and asked for “false cases” in the 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots to be taken back.
Swamy told a gathering of mostly BJP supporters that he had told Mulayam and his brother, Rajya Sabha member Ram Gopal Yadav, that if the matter went to court, it could lead to loss of face for the state government.
Several Hindus in the district have complained that following the 2013 riots, “false” FIRs were filed against them. “Muzaffarnagar is a historic place that has gone through trouble in the recent past,” Swamy said. “I had spoken to the government here, especially Mulayam Singh and his brother Ram Gopal Yadav. I said that there are so many false cases. Take these back. These can be dismissed by the court, and you will be put to shame. It would be better if you withdrew the cases.
“Then they told me you give me a list, and we will take action and give them relief. I want to tell you all that if any of you think that there has been injustice, with false FIRs, give me a list of those persons, give it to me, and we will see what I can do,” Swamy said.
The BJP leader also said that in his public meetings, people had expressed unhappiness over the slow pace of delivery of promises by the union government, and he would raise the matter at the party national executive meeting in Bangalore in April.
Speaking earlier in the day at Shri Ram College of Law in Muzaffarnagar, Swamy said that all of India must get “rid of its divisions”. “According to DNA, we are all the same, North Indians or South Indians. Even Muslims’ DNA is the same as Hindu DNA. They are our descendants,” he said.
