Bury slain terrorists in pigskin: Tripura Guv Tathagata Roy


New Delhi, Jan 5: In remarks that could kick up a controversy, Tripura Governor Tathagata Roy today said that bodies of slain terrorists should be wrapped in pigskin and then buried.

"I seriously suggest Russian treatment to terrorists' carcasses. Wrap them in pigskin, bury them face down in pig excreta. No chance of Houris," Roy said on Twitter.

'Bury slain terrorists in pigskin'

In common understanding, Houris denote beautiful Women in heaven, who are believed to be given to Muslim men who die as martyrs.

Roy's tweet about the treatment that should be meted out to slain terrorists came against the backdrop of the Pathankot terror attack in which six Pakistani terrorists were neutralised. This is not the first time that Roy has made controversial remarks.

In July last, Roy had tweeted "Intelligence shd keep a tab on all (expt relatives & close friends) who assembled bfr Yakub Memon's corpse. Many are potential terrorists" sparking off a controversy.

Roy, who was appointed Tripura Governor after NDA came to power at Centre, has held strong views on many issues.

He was earlier President of the West Bengal unit of the BJP. His earlier tweets about Love Jihad and post Godhra riots had also evoked sharp reactions.
