Former BJP MP from Uttar Pradesh, Sangeet Som has again created controversy by alleging that the population of only one particular community is increasing and that the Rajput community should take up arms in future to stop” Sar Tan Se Juda » (beheading) and terrorist threats. Both comments were aimed at the Muslim community which is the largest minority group in the state. The former MP also targeted the Congress Bharat Jodo Yatra in Kerala and alleged that only green flags were hoisted in the yatra and hardly any national flags were used in the state.

Addressing a gathering of the Rajput community under the banner ‘Rajput Utthan Sabha’ in Meerut, Mr Som said: “We have to be concerned about the growing population. Our population is decreasing, but the population of a community is increasing. It is possible that in the future we will need to take up arms, while terrorism reigns everywhere.

The former MP also targeted Bharat Jodo Yatra of the Congress party. “I was watching the Congress yatra in Kerala, and there were only green flags… hardly any national flags were raised. The time is not far off when even in western Uttar Pradesh the green flag will be seen.

Later, speaking to reporters, Mr. Som added: “The Rajputs will have to take up arms in the future to stop Sir Tan Se Judah threats. When the Rajput community takes up arms, no one would dare to threaten Sir Tan Se Judah and create terrorism.
