BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Friday urged Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit to take strict action against the recent attacks against the Brahmin community after the new DMK regime came to power. Swamy in a letter asked the Governor to summon the State Chief Secretary and seek a report on the attacks against the defenceless section of the Brahmin community.
“I write today to draw your attention to the current situation of tension in Tamil Nadu arising from the defacto implicit support of the recently elected Government namely that led by the DMK leadership of Mr M K Stalin. The targeting of Brahmins in the State and a verbal terrorizing of this hapless disorganised community is today much like as happened during the early period of the Nazi government led by Adolf Hitler in Germany. I am getting reports from persons living in the State of Tamil Nadu, that Teacher and Pujaris are specifically targeted because they are Brahmins,” said Swamy accusing DMK cadre of unleashing attacks on the Brahmin community and their institutions.
I am a sending a letter to the best Governor to date of Tamil Nadu, Dr. Banwarilal Purohit, on the fear and gloom all over in Tamil Nadu amongst Gyani & Tyagi Brahmins. It is reminiscent of the early stages of Nazi Germany when Jews began to be targeted and physically assaulted.

Swamy in his letter accused rogue elements in Dravida Kazhagam (DK), ruling DMK and rump elements of the LTTE is behind these attacks against the Brahmin community and their Institutions. “Since this situation is in the earliest stage after the new State Government came into being, therefore it is too early for me to suggest that Article 356 is presently applicable.
“It is important however now to nip this in the bud for which I request you to summon the Chief Secretary of the Government of Tamil Nadu and ask him to prepare a report of all the grievances of these defenceless sections of the Brahmin community are suffering and subsequently, Excellency may take what you consider to be appropriate action,” said Swamy.
