Tripura Governor Tathagata Roy has once again kicked up a storm by tweeting on communal hatred following the Pathankot airbase terror attack.
“I seriously suggest Russian treatment to terrorists’ carcasses. Wrap them in pigskin, bury them face down in pig excreta. No chance of Houris,” Roy tweeted on Monday.
In common understanding, Houris denote beautiful women in heaven, who are believed to be given to Muslim men who die as martyrs.
This is not the first time Roy has made such controversial remarks.
In July last year, Roy had tweeted “Intelligence shd keep a tab on all (expt relatives & close friends) who assembled bfr Yakub Memon’s corpse. Many are potential terrorists” sparking off a controversy.
HT had reported in detail about the Governor’s acerbic ‘political views’ both on Twitter and on his blog where he drew flak for his controversial write-ups on the threats of Islamic fundamentalism, exodus of Kashmiri Pandits and the ‘misdeeds of Mohandas Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru’.
Roy, who was appointed Tripura Governor after NDA came to power at Centre, has held strong views on many issues. He was earlier President of the West Bengal unit of the BJP.
His earlier tweets about Love Jihad and post Godhra riots had also evoked sharp reactions.
