THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Kerala police has booked RSS-BJP workers who raised highly provocative slogans against Muslims and even threatened to vandalise their places  of worship.

The incident took place  on Wednesday when BJP took out a march in Thalassery town in Kannur district to commemorate  the Martyrdom day of Yuva Morcha leader K T Jayakrishnan.  He was hacked to death allegedly by a gang of CPM workers on December 1, 1999.

 

According to Kannur police, the case was registered "suo motu" for raising slogans that created communal disharmony.

The cases were registered under section 153 of IPC and 143 IPC which pertains to creating  enmity between different religious groups and unlawful assembly. 

Though the Muslim organisations had no  role  in the murder, it is alleged that the BJP workers purposefully raised slogans against  the community to  create enmity and trigger religious polarisation.

The ruling CPM  lashed out at the RSS for  vitiating the peaceful atmosphere in the state and making attempts  to  disturb communal  harmony. There was no provocation for raising such hateful slogans, said Thalassery MLA A N Shamsheer.

 

Senior CPM leader from Kannur P Jayarajan appealed to the people  to see through the RSS game. "There seems to be a planned move to create communal tension  in the state. However, their attempts will be defeated by all sections of society," he said.

 He urged the people to  guard against attempts to create communal divide.
