Sat Maharaj: "Kamla you will pay a hell of a price"

Secretary-General of the Sanatan Dharma Maha Sabha, Sat Maharaj has told Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar that she will pay a "hell of a price" and says she is no longer welcome at the Lakshmi Girls' College.

Maharaj has revoked an invitation for Persad-Bissessar to speak at Indian Arrival Day proceedings at the College next week and is now calling on Hindus to vote for whichever party they feel has the best measures.

Maharaj made the announcement during a programme on TV Jaagriti on Friday.

This follows Persad-Bissessar's criticism of the actions taken by the board and principal of the Lakshmi Girls Hindu College, to ask an on-the-job trainee to remove her hijab.

"I want to tell you Kamla, we had sent you an invitation to our Indian Arrival Day programme Wednesday at Lakshmi College and you were due to talk," Maharaj said.

"But I want to tell you now, I have revoked that invitation. You are not welcome on our compound. Kamla Persad-Bissessar, you are not welcome on our compound," Maharaj said.

A clip of his statement has already begun circulating online as he told Hindus who traditional vote for the opposition United National Congress, to "free up their vote".

He added: "You take for granted. You could behave any how. Do what you want, eat what you want, drink what you want, play the ass all over the place and the Hindu would still vote for you. Kamla those days are over. We are asking the Hindus to free their vote.

"Vote for whichever party has the best programme. Vote for whichever candidate is the best candidate. Not because they are Indian and Hindu or woman. The Hindu vote is going to be freed up. No more voting because you belong to the same race or the same card," he said. 

Maharaj added: "Kamla, you are going to pay a hell of a price. A hell of a price. You're going to pay a hell of a price."

Maharaj's nephew Devant Maharaj served as a government minister in the Kamla Persad-Bissessar administration and still plays an active role with the party.

The matter involving the hijab is to be sent to the court by the attorney general for interpretation.
