Pillai apologises for derogatory remarks

Pillai apologises for derogatory remarks

Kottarakkara: Kerala Congress-B chairman R. Balakrishna Pillai Wednesday apologised for his alleged derogatory remarks against Muslim and Christian communities.

“What had come out in the public was the edited version of my speech. There is a conspiracy behind it,” Pillai told reporters at the press conference.

“I’m not against the Muslims. I apologise if my speech had hurt anyone,” he said.

Balakrishna Pillai had landed in trouble for allegedly making derogatory remarks against Muslim and Christian communities, with state police initiating a probe against him.

He reportedly made the speech recently at his home town Pathanapuram in Kollam district at a meeting of Nair Service Society (NSS), an organisation of the forward Nair community in the state.

Condemning the speech, Muslim outfits sought strong action against him for hurting their religious sentiments and alleged it was aimed at igniting communal tension in society.
