Taking objection to Vijayan accepting an award from the RSS, Zachariah had said that if Hitler was alive and conferred him with an award, he would reject it adding that he would not accept an award even from ‘Gujarat’s murderer’ Narendra Modi.

BJP then filed a complaint with the police. Later, B Gopalakrishnan, a senior BJP functionary in Thrissur District, had told the media on Friday that if Zachariah did not apologise, then the BJP might be forced to ‘act,’ reported IANS.

According to the BJP, Zachariah made the comments about Modi, while referring to the 2002 Gujarat riots.

The 73-year-old Sahitya Akademi award winner is known for his criticism of religious fundamentalism. Zachariah said it was for the Kerala government to decide if he was to be given any security cover in the wake of the ‘threat.’
