The Tamil Nadu Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam has alleged that Hindutva groups have made videos titled ‘Tamil Nadu under the grip of Jihad’ and are distributing them on the social media to create communal tension just before the Assembly elections. The party urged the Tamil Nadu government to crack down on such videos.
In a statement here on Wednesday, the TMMK said that the BJP has been indulging in politics of hate before the election. “Just like they did in parts of North India, the Sangh Parivar is trying to foment unrest between Hindus and Muslims,” the statement said. The video portrays Muslims as perpetrators of violence and might instigate the Hindus to act against them. “The Chief Minister must look into the matter and take action,” the statement said.
