BSP MP writes to Speaker to refer his case to privilege committee, demands inquiry against Bidhuri

New Delhi: Outrage has erupted on social media with the hashtag #ArrestRameshBidhuri trending after BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri made inflammatory communal comments during a parliamentary session. The Lok Sabha Speaker, Om Birla, issued a stern warning to Bidhuri, emphasizing the possibility of severe action in response to his offensive remarks.

The comments, directed at Muslim MP Danish Ali of the BSP, occurred during a discussion on the achievements of Chandrayaan. The Speaker promptly expunged Bidhuri’s remarks from the records, signaling the gravity of the incident. A video from the Lok Sabha session captured Bidhuri using abusive and Islamophobic language against Ali while making his point.

In a letter addressed to the Speaker, Danish Ali expressed his dismay, highlighting the incident’s impact on him as a minority representative and a member of the nation’s elected body. Ali urged the Speaker to refer the matter to the privileges committee for further investigation, revealing the deep distress he felt over the incident.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh offered an apology in the House shortly after the incident. “I express regret if the opposition is hurt by the remarks made by the member,” he stated. However, the opposition remains unsatisfied, insisting that stronger action be taken against Bidhuri, including his suspension or arrest.

Twitter users have flooded the platform with condemnatory messages, demanding accountability from both Bidhuri and the BJP. Hashtags like #ArrestRameshBidhuri have gained traction, amplifying the public’s call for decisive action.

Prominent figures from various backgrounds have joined the chorus of disapproval, denouncing Bidhuri’s comments and calling for accountability. The incident has reignited discussions about the importance of decorum and respect in parliamentary discourse, prompting a broader conversation about the role of elected officials in shaping a diverse and inclusive society.

As the controversy continues to escalate, all eyes are on the BJP and parliamentary authorities to address the issue and take appropriate action against Ramesh Bidhuri.
