Modi Govt spreading Barhaminism: Arundhati Roy

After receiving the Mahatma Phule Equality award, she claimed the word “intolerance” is inadequate to describe the “fear” in which the minorities in the country are now living.

Slamming the Modi government, she alleged it was promoting “Brahmanism” in the name of “Hindu Rashtravad.” Roy, a Booker Prize winner, also alleged that the BJP was trying to “glorify” social reformers in the country as “great Hindus” and cited Dr B R Ambedkar as one of them, though he had left the Hindu religion.

“The history is being re-written and national institutions are being taken over by the government,” she further alleged. Raising slogans against Roy, ABVP activists called her “anti-national, pro-Pakistan and anti-Indian Army”, before they were rounded up by police.

ABVP protest

Police detained several activists of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) who attempted to disrupt Ms. Roy’s award ceremony in protest against her ‘anti-national’ statements in the past, including against the Indian Army.

The ABVP, in a memorandum to the organisers, Mahatma Phule Samata Parishad, alleged that Roy, by her “anti-national” stand, had hurt the sentiments of all Indians.

NCP leader and former Maharashtra minister Chhagan Bhujbal said the BJP need to learn its lesson from the Bihar Assembly polls result and Prime Minister Narendra Modi should control the party’s “fringe elements” indulging in “intolerant talks”.
