GUWAHATI: Protests in Assam assembly against the use of the word ‘Islamic’ to refer to terrorist groups in the state on Monday led to chief minister
Tarun Gogoi assuring his government would stop such a use of the word in future.
Gogoi’s comment came after Assam United Democratic Front legislator Anwarul Haq Chaudhury objected to ‘Islamic militancy’ used in a question by Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) MLA Prabin Gogoi.
The issue was immediately grabbed by Muslim MLAs cutting across party lines and Congress, AGP, AUDF and even Independent legislators vehemently objected, calling it an insult to the community.
