GUWAHATI, June 22 � A criminal case (CR Case No 1482/2012) has been filed against MP Sansuma Khungur Bwismuthiary and Janaklal Basumatary, president of the World Bodo Historical Society in the court of the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Kamrup here for their recent outburst against the Kirtan Ghosha allegedly with a malafide intention to incite communal hatred.
Arun Pathak complained before the court that both Bwismuthiary and Basumatary have misinterpreted Kirtan Ghosha with the intention of creating �communal� and religious disharmony between the Bodo-Mech and the Assamese community.�
They have given gross misinterpretation to a verse of the Kirtan Ghosha and called for a ban on both the Kirtan Ghosa and the Nam Ghosha. Their statement on these two highly revered Vaishnavite scriptures have cast aspersions also on the Mahapurusa Sankaradeva and his apostle Madhavadeva, said the petitioner, who called for judicial remedies under sections 153-A/505(2) /34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, etc. punishable with imprisonment for 3 years and non-compoundable.
Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate L.K. Saikia recorded the statements of Arun Pathak and after hearing his counsel Bhaskar Dev Konwar, fixed the case for further orders on June 26 (Tuesday).
Our Kokrajhar Correspondent adds: The statement by Lok Sabha MP Sansuma Khunggur Bwiswmuthiary, secretary of World Bodo History Society against verses 13 and 14 of the Kirtan Ghosha and Nam Ghosha as objectionable and hence needed to be removed, was correct, said Hiracharan Narzinari, president of WBHS at a press meet in Kokrajhar today.
