An FIR has been lodged against Satya Ranjan Borah in Latasil Police Station in Guwahati on November 5th, 2019. Borah has been accused of misleading and hurting the sentiments of the people of the state in his new book Islam Aru Quranr Kolongkito Kothabur.
The FIR has been lodged at the Latasil Police Station against Borah and the publishing house – The Dark World – by a group of advocates led by Sahidul Haque. The book was surrounded in controversies ever since it was launched on November 3rd, 2019. The complainants alleged that Borah’s book has hurt the sentiments of Islam followers in Assam.
“Borah has insulted Muslim women, Islam religion by misrepresenting the Quran in his book. We demand immediate action against him and the publication house. Borah has targetted a particular religion and is trying to create division in the society,” said Hoque.
On the other hand, Borah wrote a cryptic post on Facebook. “This is nothing but a minor stitch; operation is yet to be done. Preparation is going on. Truth has to be established.”
