New Delhi, Oct 26: Observing that the contentious statements made by Kashmiri Separatist, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, and Naxal sympathiser and activist, Arundati Roy, threatens the constitutional integrity of India, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has sought to push Home Minister, P Chidambaram, into action.

“The language used (by separatists at the seminar) certainly threatens the constitutional integrity of the country and the answer given at that time by the Home Minister was that there was a recording available and he would want to see it and that he would take action, if necessary," BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said.

"We are waiting to see what action the Home Minister is going to take," she added.

The controversial statements came last week at the convention on 'Azadi—The Only Way".

The Booker prize winning author and activist, Roy had stated, “Kashmir has never been an integral part of India. It is a historical fact. Even the Indian government has accepted this."

Both Hurriyat leader, Syed Ali Shah Geelani and the activist, Arundhati Roy are likely to face charges of sedition for making anti-India statements.
