In a letter to the government, Swamy wrote that his "constructive" views on Islamic terrorism led to increased threats to him. The request came after Swamy referred to a case of hooliganism that he believes was masterminded by Congress.
Swamy's comment that Muslims be denied voting rights if they failed to recognize their Hindu legacy did not go well and led to controversy and demands that his assignment at Harvard be ceased.
Swamy, in his letter, also said that during his visit to the US, Harvard University had provided him with security quoting a representation by civil servants, armed forces personnel and retired judges for improved protection.
He further asked for a safer housing lawn, in areas like Pandara Road, Zakir Hussain Marg or Mathura Road in Central Delhi with "AB type" official residence and a first and ground floor with an enclosed lawn, hoping that the government would consider his request.
"I had received a threat letter from al-Qaida sometime back and then another letter from LTTE. I forwarded these letters (to the police)," said Swamy in a quote to the Times of India.
Subramanian Swamy's bombing revelation on the 2G spectrum scam shook the entire nation after he submitted documents in the Supreme Court that indicted the then finance minister P Chidambram and former telecom minister A Raja of their involvement in deciding the the 2G spectrum price.
