New Delhi: Congress general secretary
Digvijay Singh on Friday sought stern action against Janata Party
president Subramanian Swamy for writing his article in which he suggested taking away
the voting rights of Muslims.
"I strongly condemn the most communal views expressed by
Subramanian Swamy. I strongly feel that action should be taken
against him as per law,", Singh told reporters here.

Singh said he also endorsed the demand made by some
students of Harvard University that people like Swamy should
not be allowed to lecture in prestigious institutes like
theirs for having written such articles. "I strongly endorse
what the Harvard students have demanded."
Earlier, speaking at a book release function at India
International Centre, Singh said he was ashamed that such
persons were there in this country, while referring to Swamy.

"I am ashamed that such people live in this country and
get an opportunity to write such articles in eminent papers."
