Angry Subramanian Swamy says his journalist daughter has not converted to Islam, calls own party supporter buffoon

BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy on Friday lost his cool at one of his own party supporters after she accused his journalist daughter of having converted to Islam.

Subramanian Swamy

This was after a BJP supporter Sulagna Dash reacted to a social media post of journalist Suhasini Haidar, Swamy’s daughter, by calling her a ‘converted Muslim lady.’ Responding to the Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed’s announcement to grant Zayed Medal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Haidar had tweeted, “Is the Zayed Medal announcement tagged to possible visit by PM to Abu Dhabi temple? Either way, odd for foreign governments to make such declarations during election campaign.”

Dash wrote, “Don’t understand why this converted Muslim lady always against Hindus and bjp ??”

Taking objection to Dash’s attack, Swamy tweeted, “You are either lying or a buffoon. She is not converted.”

The UAE government on Thursday granted the ‘Zayed Medal’ to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for giving ‘boost’ to the bilateral ties between India and the UAE. This, according to local correspondents in Dubai, was to stop Modi’s possible visit to Abu Dhabi for the foundation laying ceremony of a Hindu temple.

Suhasini Haidar works for The Hindu newspaper as the paper’s National Editor and Diplomatic Affairs Editor. She is married to Nadeem Haidar, son of Salman Haidar, former Indian foreign secretary.

  1. Dear Mr Swamy,
    What you sow, so you reap is the Saying. You keep poking anyone and everyone as if you are the only saviour or truthful person in INDIA.

    YOUR DAUGHTER MAY HAVE NOT CONVERTED BUT IS IT TRUE THAT SHE IS MARRIED TO A MUSLIM ?

    IF THAT IS TRUE, ANY INDIAN WOMEN AFTER MARRIAGE SIMPLY TAKES THE RELIGION OR SOCIAL STATUS IN THE SAME COMMUNITY AS THAT OF HER HUSBAND “BY DEFAULT”

    IT MAY NOT BE TO THE LIKING OF THE PARENTS OF THE WOMEN OR THE WOMEN HERSELF, THAT’S THE PREVALENT TRADITION IN INDIA. IT MATTERS THE LEAST AS TO YOU AGREE TO IT OR NOT.

    IN FUTURE DO NOT POKE YOUR RUNNING NOSE IN OTHERS ISSUES AS AN AUTHORITY IN COMMAND AS IF YOU ARE AUTHORISED TO CLEANSE ALL THE WRONGS IN THE WORLD. BETTER YOU MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS, YOU COULD NOT SET YOUR FAMILY ON THE RIGHT PATH, SO WHY BOTHER ABOUT THE WORLD ?

    • You are doing well. He is answerable. If he is not in a position to show his own daughter a good path what can he do for nation. Lanit on him.

  2. All said and done , the fact is that Mrs Suhasini is wife of Haider by marriage and professor Subramanian Swamy married a parsi.

  3. Swamyji why are you limiting the qualifiaction of the Tweet Writer to either liar or buffoon. Why can not he be both liar and buffoon.

  4. I don’t understand why Subramanian Swamy should lose his composure. Suhasini is an individual. Different from him. She married a Muslim. That is her business. The action does not dilute or lower status or stature of Swamy. It does not take importance away from his speeches. By the way Parsi religion is a sister religion of Hinduism. Thousands of years ago both were same, that is, they had a common parent. Of course if Suhasini is anti Hindu, she should change her stance. Irrational or habitual Hindu baiting is no more tolerable by us now.

    • That’s a great way to justify any degenerate behavior “She is an individual, she can do whatever horrible things she wants to and i will not do anything to stop it”.

      “The action does not dilute or lower status or stature of Swamy”
      It absolutely does, Swamy preaches Hindu Nationalism and anti-Islamism and his own Daughter has married a Muslim. It makes him a joke.

      “By the way Parsi religion is a sister religion of Hinduism”
      No its not.

  5. Dr Swamy is avoiding the main point raised by Ms Haider. If this were any other editor, he would have blasted that person.

  6. Opinions of children being different from that of parents is nothing new. Here things more different n dicey. He is a top politician, she a journalist. Both are in public life and should cope with brickbats. His response is uncharacteristic. SAD.

  7. Why is SS getting into a twist over such comments?
    Buffoon is quite a timid word to describe a moron.
    Ignore and move on.

  8. Having had embraced Islam and married to a Muslim , Mrs S Haider is now a better person , cleaner than before and saved herself from the hell . Why does it hurt others. SS should be happy that , someone , related to him , has won a seat in Paradise . Mrs S Haider is lucky .

    • ahmad ali, so 72 you know what is waiting for you on the other side. lol…rather than saying she is an adult, her own master of her own fate, makes her own decision , independent etc.. you had to as usual display your low IQ by dragging even lower islamic thoughts into the mix…. even God can not save islam, my friend…grow up..

  9. Chutiya type ka pagal hai.
    Aise faltu logon ko back kar raha hai wo bhi aise back kar raha hai ki iske marte hi khatam ho jayegi aukaat unki jo du kaudi ke budhau ke piche chale hue hain apne ko amar batane.
    Om Namah Shivay

  10. Why SS is so getting irritated by the tweet? He always get into all matters and finally get ashamed by his actions and words. Why worry and getting so irritated to call others bafoon etc. swamy when someone says a facts that too about your own family members.

    Just think of yourself SS, how many places and matters you involved with half truths and full false. Note, that, it’s all just boomeranging!
    Just keep quite at least on your daughter’s issue, she is major and took her own decision. Just leave her alone! And mind in your business that’s better.
    Have a great weekend.
