Bengaluru: BJP’s youngest MP from the state, Tejaswi Surya faced criticism from Twitterati after he termed the protesters who attacked Jain temple and members of Jain community, as Rowdy elements.

Tejasvi Surya on Sunday expressed concern over the alleged attack on Jains by a few rowdy elements in Bengaluru over Hindi written on a banner of a temple.

Taking to Twitter, Surya claimed that the “rowdy elements” did not question the use of Arabic language in Bengaluru.

“Deeply hurt over attack on our Jain brothers in B’luru over Hindi on a banner of a temple by few rowdy elements. They however never question the use of `rb~ (Arabic) in Bengaluru. Assaulting peaceful Jains who contribute to Karnataka brings infamy to genuine Kannada lovers and activists,” Surya tweeted.

Meanwhile, in another tweet he said “Many great poets like Pampa, Ponna, and Ranna, known as Ratnatraya or three gems of Kannada literature, were Jains. Very beginning of Kannada literature is Jaina Yuga. Therefore, I urge today’s young Jains in Karnataka to learn this history and also use Kannada in their communications.”
