Senior politician from Kerala, PC George, who is 7-term-MLA from Poonjar constituency in Kerala, was arrested by the Left government on Sunday (May 1) from his residence for saying in an event that by controlling the population of other communities, Muslims want to control this country.
Many Islamists filed complaint against him alleging it was a hate speech against Muslims.
While addressing the Ananthapuri Hindu Maha Sammelan in Thiruvananthapuram on Friday (April 29), PC George said that restaurants run by Muslims serve drinks, to customers of other communities, laced with medicines which cause impotency in men and women. He added that by doing this, Muslims want to control the country.
PC George has been raising his voice against different forms of jihad practiced by Muslims.
He also warned that Muslims spit in foods they serve to others. “Why should we eat their spit? Their scholars say spit is perfume,” he said.
Expressing his concern over the decreasing population of Hindus and Christians in the country, George said, “Hindu and Christian women were reluctant to give birth to more babies. Muslim women are doing that very sincerely. I should congratulate them. They are moving towards the aim of seizing this Hindu Rashtra. Both Hindu and Christian women should beget at least four babies.”
Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) leader PK Firoz had filed a complaint against George.
Union Minister and senior BJP leader from Kerala V Muraleedharan went to the AR camp on Sunday (May 1) to visit PC George but was denied permission to enter the premises. Speaking to reporters outside the police camp, Minister Muraleedharan criticised the Left government for adopting double standards.
“The CPM-led government holds the view that anti-national statements can be allowed. But it was quick in arresting PC George for his remarks. The government is showing undue haste in this matter when religious extremists who hack BJP workers are roaming free,” he said.
In a series of tweets, Minister Muraleedharan said, “Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has once again proved himself as a hypocrite. CPM Govt sits idle for days to arrest the killers of Sreenivasan. It won’t act on Islamic fundamentalists who create havoc in the state – but moves quickly to arrest who express their opinion.”
“When I went to meet Mr PC George – I was not even allowed to meet him. If a Union Minister is not allowed to meet a civilian what is the situation for common people? Pinarayi Vijayan Govt is autocratic – it has no concern for others and their freedom of speech. Shame.”
Later, PC George was granted bail by the court. While coming out of the courtroom, George said that his arrest was Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s gift to Islamists in the state.
