Gogoi threatens to ban Swamy’s entry in assam; FIR lodged
BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has stoked a controversy with his reported remark that mosques and churches are mere buildings and can be demolished following which an FIR was lodged against him and the Assam government on Sunday threatened to ban his entry to the state. Swamy, who was on a personal visit to attend an event of a university in the state last week, had reportedly said that mosques and churches are mere "buildings" to offer prayers. "So there is no problem in demolishing them. They demolish mosques even in Saudi Arabia," he had said.
