Wasted 22 Years In Congress
Himanta Biswa Sarma was a former Assam Congress minister before departing in 2015 to become a minister and afterward the Chief Minister.
He supported several Hindutva ideas regarding riots and other crimes, including a love jihad interpretation of Shraddha Walkar murder case. In this regard, he said, “The moment has come for us to define legally what is love jihad. We have numerous proof in our state.”
Furthermore, he made veiled allusions to Muslims in an effort to place the blame for communal unrest on a certain group while claiming that “Hindus generally do not partake in rioting. Hindus reject the concept of jihad. Hindus are a peaceful people in general.”
