Kolkata, Jan 30 (TIWN): The BJPs West Bengal unit has filed a complaint with the police against national award-winning singer, musician and lyricist Kabir Suman for allegedly using abusive language against a journalist working with private news channel who had called for his reaction on a particular issue.

"Yesterday, while watching and surfing social media, I came across a news clip, where the said Kabir Suman could be heard speaking to a journalist over phone and using ******** (foul language that cannot be published). He was rampantly abusing the journalist and when the scribe stated that as a Bengali, he is asking certain questions, the said Kabir Suman rampantly abused him with filthy language, which was not expected from a cultured person like him. He was giving rape threats to the Bengali mothers and inciting communal tension and violence," BJP leader and KMC councillor Sajal Ghosh wrote in his complaint.

Kabir Suman is a former Trinamool Congress MP.

"The said statement and voice recording was aired in various social media posts and portals. It is quite disturbing to even believe that a person has the audacity to abuse the Bengali and non-Bengali communities in this fashion in a country where, as per the Constitution, all religions, caste, creeds are to be respected.
